Update as at Monday 11th June 2012
It is with regret that we have been forced to postpone the Browning L200 Game Challenge this weekend due to the poor weather conditions. We have been advised that access to the site for the tower cranes is now impossible due to the saturated ground, and with the prospects of further heavy rain this week it is preventing the set up. In addition, there is a potential hazard of high winds forecast at the weekend.
This is extremely disappointing, as the event had attracted so much support and enthusiasm from game shooters and clay shooter alike. We do plan to re-schedule the event but as yet we have not decided on any dates - please revisit our news pages for more information, or send your contact details to be kept informed.
To be hosted by The Clay Shooting Company at their Westfield Shooting Ground, one of the venues of the 2012 World Shooting Championships. Westfield Shooting Ground is a set in stunning Cotswolds scenery, easily accessible only 15 minutes from Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (GL54 3BX).
Four man teams will be able to shoot on either day (or both if you’re very keen!). The course consists of five x 150 bird flushes to include crossing partridges, high pheasant, driven grouse, teals and a rook shoot in the woods. During each flush a whistle will blow after 50 birds signalling the guns to stop move up 2 pegs, this will keep it more interesting for each shooter. To test even the top shots, one of the flushes will be shot with a .410 (guns and ammunition provided courtesy of Browning International).
This is surely a compeition not to be missed, with impressive prizes from Browning, Firs Garage and The Clay Shooting Company, including: each member of the winning team will receive a new Browning B725 shotgun (worth £1895 each) and the runner up team will receive an 8 man simulated game day package worth £4500. There will also be prizes for the top ladies team and the top .410 Flush score.
Enjoy your day, enjoy the weekend, as well as the stunning venue and enjoyable, challenging sport, there will be bacon rolls on arrival with tea and coffee available all day and a hog roast feast available from 2pm onwards. Also, Browning and Firs Garage (Mitsubishi) teams will be on hand during the event providing the opportunity of test driving or test shooting their latest products.
Make this a date in your diary, but don't forget to book as team numbers will be limited – so book early to ensure you are part of this can’t miss event! Team booking details.
