The Black Grouse Charity Clay Shoot, Friday 2nd May 2014 will take place at Compton Manor Estate, Kings Somborne, nr Stockbridge SO20 6QW.
Put the date in your diary and find three friends to make up a team. The purpose of the day, other than to have a great day out amid a lot of banter, is to raise money for The World Pheasant Association.
If you are unable to make it, the Golden Pheasant Charity Shoot is on 21st June 2014.
Last year’s event at Compton was enjoyed by all participants and was a very great success for WPA with £13,000 being raised for the Charity. We hope with your support to do even better this year.
This year May shoot is in aid of Black Grouse research. The artist and sculptor Simon Gudgeon of ‘Sculpture by the Lakes’ fame is creating a brand new sculpture of a Black Grouse, one of which will become the ‘Black Grouse Trophy’ and will be presented to this year’s top gun by him. This will not be for retention, only the glory, but Patrick Laurie has donated a suitably worded and autographed copy of his new book on Black Grouse which will also be presented along with of course a suitable bottle!! For the past three years WPA has been funding an important study into the effects of Windfarms on Blackgrouse and other wildlife.
Jean and Keith Howman carried out another successful booze cruise raid on Calais in January (they are very good at this) and the caterers, Matt Atkinson and his team, are booked and lined up to do a repeat of last year’s excellent Hog Roast BBQ plus strawberries and cream. All this plus cartridges and clays are included in the cost for the day.
A team of four guns is £640 for the day
Individual guns are £160 for the day
Non shooting guests are £35 for the day
Alternatively, if you cannot make either date, the WPA would be delighted to receive a donation. The WPA is a registered charity, #271203.
