TT, On booking a place there is a £10 deposit which I am told will be refunded on your attendance at the event. This is confirmed on the booking form. For anybody new to the sport or having experience but shying away from taking level 1/2 a very worthwhile day.

This day will be run in two separate sections the theory (in a class room ) and a practical section will be out in the countryside. The participants will be split in to two groups each group will do a Theory and a practical. One of the groups will start with the practical and then swap with the other group at lunch time.
This is an open day and anyone can attend and it is free for all who attend. May i say at this time places are limited so if you are interested contact the emails on the notice or PM me through the site. If any one has any questions do not hesitate to ask.

This day is a limited event at the moment it is just over 50% booked. Anyone thinking of taking up any of the qualification to reach required competency levels would be advised to go on a day like this. It is free and long established deer stalkers will be on hand to answer any questions.
The event will have a deer officer from SNH who will answer any question any one might have about the deer code and standards. Forestry Enterprise will have some on on hand to demonstrate the risk assessment process covering deer management . They will also answer question on how to bid for FC leases.

Just an update on the CAD (Competence Awareness Day) in Eastkilbride the weather i am told will be dry with a cold wind so any one coming to the event make sure you have suitable clothing. (RAP UP WELL). The start time is 9 am and i would like every one there for that time please. (Keep the Garish combat clothes to a minimum or do what i do and just avoid them on days like this.
Do not !! bring your own rifle you will not have a chance to use it everything is supplied on the day.
Bring a note pad a paper and make sure you ask as many questions as possible.

Any one with special dietary needs will need to bring there own food and drink as this is a full day event.
