THE FORESTERS SHOOTING ASSOCIATION



Foresters' is basically a Sunday club.
We shoot somewhere, on pretty well every Sunday,
but not only on Sundays.

In outline:
on the last Sunday of each month, we are usually outdoors at Bisley;
all other Sundays, we use the indoor range at Pinewood.

The complete picture is more complicated.



INDOOR SHOOTS

On every Sunday but the last in the month,
the range at Pinewood is available between 0900 & 2300 hrs,
although most people have finished by 1300.

If there is no outdoor shoot on the last Sunday of the month
(this often happens over the Christmas period, as you'd expect),
then Pinewood will be available from 1300 hrs.

Occasionally, there is a judo competition taking place, or the gymnasts are busy,
or a football tournament is in full swing. It is good to know these events are well supported,
but when this happens, we have to park where we can, and maybe carry our kit a bit farther.

Very occasionally, Pinewood itself may be unavailable,
-- during the Pinewood Festival, for example, which typically takes place
on the first weekend in July, in odd-numbered years.

In addition to sighting-in, practising your stance, testing your latest loads, &c,
there are 2 indoor competitions which use the turning targets:
the club's Challenge Cup, and the Phoenix League postal comp.

Details of these are given on the club notice board,
and shoot dates are available from TFSA notifications

Full members wishing to shoot at Pinewood when a key holder is not available
will need to contact Andy (on 01344 484215) to arrange a time to pick up the keys.

There must be a minimum of 2 people on the range at all times when shooting.
