    Its good to see the north west branch of the bds have a good calander of events this year as seen in the book or not how come all the other branches can fill a page with there forth coming events but not the north west branch.its no wonder that no body turns up to support the ranges days and the level 1 days etc .what do others north west members think

    BDS branches are only as good as the people who are prepared to give up their time to run events.

    The branch programme is, as SRVET has kindly posted, online on the NW BDS Branch home page.

    There will be planned, other events, which will be placed into the programme, Deer journal, is an excellent medium to read of events which, have taken place. There is also the branch magazine, which is posted quarterly (hard copy and via e-mail) to NW branch members.

    As far as I recall, I recieved notification of several branch events last year, but due to work and family was unable like many others to attend.

    It is an age old problem getting people to attend events regardless of what they are - remember that the BDS isnt just about deer management and stalking, I would hazzard a guess that 50% of members have no interest in shooting at all.

    Branch events need to cater for all, if the rifle practice shoots are not well attended, does this reflect the membership, or does it reflect the organisers, or both..?

    What events would be well attended?

    What events would members like to see in the programme?
