|The Shooting Club|
After discussions with David Newcomb it was suggested that our ten regular shooters, based in the South, would best be advised to join the London & Middlesex Rifle Club at Bisley to foster their shooting careers as a team and individually.
The procedure would appear to be as follows;
London Middlesex have always had the best accommodation , social and dining facilities at Bisley Camp. They are a very friendly bunch of all ages and across all careers. For those not local, overnight accommodation is available at the club house and they also have more roomy accommodation at St.George's Lodge at £65 per night or less if you are sharing a room (remember at Bisley you are only short drive from the M4/3 going straight in to the West End...try finding a room for £65 a night in London!). London Middlesex have for many years been a strong source of county and international shots so, if an OL considers that they would like to take their competitive shooting in Target rifle or F Class further, you could not be in a better place.
The college has a strong shooting history…thanks mainly to the efforts of Walter Clarke and we have among the OLs 3 Internationals. Two of them, Phil Basil and Mike Abbot, are doing great things in the USA but I am sure would welcome the opportunity to re-visit Bisley Common.
So, you next move is to talk with David Newcomb and other shooting OLs …and then email David Lloyd.
