All Change at Astley Gun Club

    Recommended Posts

    Shooters attending this Sundays shoot should be advised that the entrance directly off the A580 for the quarry is blocked due to civil engineering works.

    Access to the shoot can be gained by turning at Astley traffic lights taking the sign for Higher Green. Drive through Astley Green; over the canal bridge and turn RIGHT at the roundabout.

    Ignore the road closed and diversion signs. If the barriers are closed open them, and beware of possible barriers t the other end of the road just before the Left turn for the clay shoot.

    You will drive through the farm. Please drive dead slow.

    Weather forecast for this Sundays shoot looks really good.

     

    If attending please be aware that some of our signage has been vandalised / stolen.

     

    We shall try to have replacements in place for the shoot.

    Brilliant weather and a cracking shoot on Sunday.

    The new Pool Shoot didn't do too well, but it's early days; so the pool will roll over to the next shoot.

    More new members and even more pledging to return and join.

    The winter work parties are in full swing, but due to set backs earlier in the Summer, and a slight change of plan to add yet another stand position we are now highly unlikely to meet our target of 100 bird shoot by Christmas.

    The quest for the 100 bird shoot continues and will increase in pace as the target has now been reset for Easter.

     

    The numerous Willow that we have planted over the last two years have started to have their effect. We shall be planting yet more Willow and Box bushes which Gunner Gordon and I have been busy propagating.

    Despite the significant amount of rain over the last couple of months the once boggy footpaths are now accessible in shoes. The hard work is paying off.

     

    We've bought and refurbished a top quality topper mower which will save us considerable time cutting grass in the future.

    Next shoot is 29th. October.

    We've produced a short video of the shoot.

    I've posted it on the shoots Facebook page, but am struggling to post it on PW.

     

    The video can be found at the bottom of the clubs website front page. www.astleygunclub.co.uk

    According to FB, the video clip has been viewed 3,200 times since I posted it on Sunday morning.

    It's impressed me. I wonder if it will result in a higher than normal attendance at this Sundays shoot.

    Very good weather forecast for this Sundays shoot.

    We shall be stopping the shooting at 11am. for two minutes silence.

    Hopefully our efforts at the work party last Sunday will have their desired effects, although it's doubtful that members will notice any difference; although they will in the not too distant future.

    A few technical glitches delayed the start of shooting slightly today, but this didn't marr an otherwise excellent,well attended shoot in cool but glorious weather. The two minutes silence at 11am was observed by all.
    Several new faces and a number that have been away for some time.
    The new mower performed well, but requires a minor repair.
