The members of the Provincial Clay Shooting Club have arranged a day where any Brother, his family and friends have the opportunity to try clay pigeon shooting. The club has enlisted the assistance of their host shooting ground owner and many of the Provincial shooting team will be present. Clay shooting is a sport suitable for men, women and children (from 10/12 years) and helps to develop hand/eye coordination. The targets are small round discs of clay approximately 150 mm diameter travelling at ten to fifteen miles an hour. The gun used is a shotgun, either twelve, twenty or twenty-eight gauge.
The date of the event is Saturday 7th October 2017 at Dartford Clay Shooting Club, Joyce Green Lane, Dartford, Kent. DA1 5PA (this is the nearest postcode to the ground, please follow the directions below).
There will be two sessions, the first starting at 10:30am and the second at 12:30pm. (Please state which session you would prefer when booking in.)
There are full catering facilities available and, since shooting is from undercover stands, inclement weather will not a problem. There may also be an opportunity to have a second and subsequent try, maybe at some slightly more difficult targets.
The initial cost is £30.00 per person which includes safety equipment, loan of a suitable gun, cartridges and clays. This fee will be collected on the day but the names of all participants are required beforehand for arrangements to be made. There is an upper limit on the number of shooters and, depending on demand, it may be necessary to restrict them. Bookings will therefore be taken on a “First Come First Served” basis.

You are now in Joyce Green Lane, continue for 100 metres where you bear slightly left and continue to follow the lane passing a farm entrance. The lane is quite narrow with a poor surface but continue for approximately 3⁄4 mile where the lane becomes un-made, you will see the club house some distance from here on the right. Continue for another 1⁄4 mile and the entrance is on your right leading to a large car park and the club house.
