One-hundred-and-fifty targets will be broken down into 24 stands across two layouts. The first squad will start on stand one and traverse the High Lodge estate in stand order from 9.30am on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, but Saturday will see the first shots fired at 9am to allow extra time for shoot-offs should they be required on the final day of the competition. This system is new to the Clay Shooting Classic Sporting for 2016 but has proven popular at different events around the country in recent years.
There will be a 25-bird Promatic FITASC side-shoot, with a clay launcher from the Clay Shooting Classic Sporting’s long-time sponsor up for grabs.
In addition to this, there will be a Zoli Pool Shoot where you can try the High Gun prize of a Zoli Z-Sport High Rib yourself or the Runner Up prize of a Zoli Kronos.
The prize breakdown reveals an increase in the overall cash amounts given to the class places on last year, and an additional payment down to fifth place in the Ladies, Veterans, Juniors and Colts categories. This further displays Clay Shooting magazine’s dedication to supporting young shots, female shooters and the older generation that makes up the lifeblood of the sport.
The top shooter will walk away with the High Gun prize of a Zoli Z-Sport High Rib worth £6,299, and the Runer Up will take home a Zoli Kronos worth £4,595. Akkar shotguns will be presented to the winner of each class (AAA-C) and category (Ladies, Juniors, Colts, Veterans), along with additional prizes from Edgar Brothers, including Howard Leight Electronic Ear Defenders, Aegis Pro shooting glasses and a high-quality Hoppe’s cleaning kit.
Clay Shooting magazine has always supported the services and armed forces at the Classic, and this year is no different. Members of the Army, Navy, RAF, Fire Service, Ambulance and Police are invited to shoot Classic course on Wednesday for a discounted rate of £49.
They will be joined by some of the best shooters in the world as any spaces left over will be open to competitors in the main Clay Shooting Classic Sporting competition. This creates a great atmosphere and an enjoyable day for those shooting the Services Classic or the main event.
There will be space inside the High Lodge clubhouse and on the lawns outside for a range of retailers, manufacturers and distributors to show off different items to shooters and their friends and family. If you would like to display a stand at the and meet over 1,000 shooters throughout the week, call Callum on 01926 339808.
