TSC Young Shots Game Day - 17th and 18th December 2009

TSC Young Shots Game Day - 17th and 18th December 2009

NB:- DATES CHANGED to 17th/18th December 2009

The game day which has been running for 3 years has been one of the most successful events in the Schools Challenge calendar.

This is a TWO day package:-

The FIRST DAY is at our shooting grounds with our professional shooting instructors, and they will teach you the etiquette of game shooting as well as how a day’s game shooting works. This day will start at 9:30 and finish at approximately 4:30 with a talk about game shooting at the end.

The SECOND DAY is at Waddesdon Manor Estate, Buckinghamshire. This is a charming shoot set in undulating countryside with beautiful scenery and woodland, which we feel is an excellent example of a professionally run game shoot. You will have the opportunity to shoot 3 drives, beat 3 drives and pick up 3 drives, giving you the chance to see exactly how the shoot works. We'll shoot 3 drives then a break for sausages and soup, followed by 3 more drives, a break for lunch on the shoot, followed by 3 more drives in the afternoon, finishing at approx. 5:00pm.

This package is a special price of only £229 all inclusive, and is open to boys and girls aged under 21, that have a basic shooting ability.
Places are limited - to book yours, ring David or Nicky on 01844 238 308 or to see more young shots info check out the home page at www.theschoolschallenge.co.uk

This event is kindly sponsored by:-
Browning, Express Cartridges,
Stratstone Land Rover Cheltenham,

Bredon Schools Challenge - entries on the day!

Bredon Schools Challenge - entries on the day!

Bredon - The Schools Challenge - 3rd May 2009

We've received a fantastic number of entries for The Schools Challenge at Bredon School this year.

See our future events page for more details:- Future Events

The shoot will start at 10am, and last entries will be at 3pm. Due to the response we've had this year, we've now got extra staff involved, and hence we can now take entries on the day - but those who've pre-booked will be given preference. When you've finished your round, you can shoot the course again for £10 for fun! Also, Mums and Dads can shoot for fun for £10 too, so get them to bring their guns with them and see if they can do better on the same targets!

We'll also have The Browning Rabbit Mania with the first prize of a Browning worth £1,500 - this is a re-entry shoot, so you can keep trying to improve your score!

There'll also be the Webley & Scott pool shoot.


If you require any more information please ring:
Oxford Gun Co:- 01844 238 308
David Florent:- 07860 271107
Dan Martin:- 07921 951477


We all look forward to seeing you all there and remember we have the Bredon Fete the next day!
