The British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), in partnership with the Country Land and Business Association (CLA), is seeking individuals and pairs to take part in its annual Countryside Clay Shoot.
On 23 May, the Six Mile Bottom shooting estate in Cambridgeshire will play host to the event, fundraising for the Gamekeepers’ Welfare Trust (GWT) and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI).
Teams of four will be competing across six stands with a variety of simulated game targets, but BASC is also encouraging individuals and pairs to apply.
“You don’t have to wait to get three mates together – put yourself forward and we will do the rest. Individuals and pairs will be put together on the day to form teams,” says Steve Bloomfield, BASC England director.
Competition entry costs £150 per person, including hospitality and cartridges, but places are limited, so booking in advance is strongly advised.
As well as a chance at lifting the prestigious Hugh van Cutsem Challenge Cup, presented by Emilie van Cutsem, competitors will have the opportunity to try some of Purdey’s world-famous guns and, most importantly, help raise money for two worthy causes.
