A cracking underground range for small bore goes west, Our club (Phoenix), took tenancy a while back, when it was a derelict WW11 school air raid shelter, the members worked very hard to convert it to a range, while keeping some of the original features intact,
The inevitable has happened and we have been given notice to leave the GP range by 12th July. The property is to be signed over to the developers on the 15th July.
Thank you to all who have worked so hard to convince the developers and others that we are a trusted shooting club etc.. The developers plan to fill the range with gravel and English Heritage seem happy with this!!
However there will be a day of last shoots on Wednesday 3rd July from
11:00 - 13:00 and then again in the evening from 19:00 - 21:00 ish. We thought that we could sign the wall and leave comments for a future generation when the shelter might be re discovered.
Please let me know if you are coming to these shoots as I will need to have sufficient targets etc.
Please keep checking your emails as we will have to have some work parties to remove all of the kit. Volunteers will be needed to help carry furniture out of the range, cut steel etc.
We must look forward and keep on shooting. nil desperandum
