We’re just over one month away from the Clay Shooting Classic, and as the anticipation builds, we’re filling you in on everything you need to know.
Entries to the Clay Shooting Classic 2019 have been coming in rapidly since the event was announced, with last issue’s announcement of ATA as a sponsor further increasing interest in this much-loved independent shoot.
We can share new details of the prize fund this issue – just take a look at the table opposite. With shotguns, cash and yet more to come, there are plenty of reasons to book now to shoot the Classic.
Don’t forget, you won’t have to pay a penny until you turn up, so there’s no reason to delay – book now and secure your preferred spot in the FITASC, Sportrap and main Sporting shoots.
Who, what, where?
Clay Shooting magazine has teamed up with Steve Lovatt and The Clay Shooting Company to bring you a Classic worthy of the name. It’s at Garlands Shooting Ground from Tuesday 28 May to Sunday 2 June, and it’s going to be absolutely awesome.
The disciplines will be spread out over the six days, starting with the 100-bird Fitasc championship from Tuesday to Thursday. The 100-target Sportrap, shot over four layouts, will run from Tuesday to Thursday as well.
Then there’s the big one, the 150-bird Sporting shot over two courses of 75 targets each on the same day. That one runs from Friday to Sunday. The prize-giving for each discipline will be held on the day it concludes – Fitasc and Sportrap on Thursday, Sporting on Sunday.
With Steve Lovatt and The Clay Shooting Company involved, you know the targets are going to be something special. Steve has set many of the big championships in recent years – in 2018 he was behind the clay lines at The Game Fair and the British Open Sporting.
Steve has a knack for creating targets that are devilish yet rewarding, and he’s always coming up with new ideas.
How do I enter?
You can book on The Clay Shooting Company website, which can be found at theclayshootingcompany.com, by phone or text to the numbers in the box on the right, or by sending us a form in the post.
This can be downloaded from the Clay Shooting website – just head to clay-shooting.com and click ‘Enter the Classic’ from the menu. As we said earlier, if you want to secure a particular squad time you should act sooner rather than later.
And don’t forget, payment is due on the day of shooting this year, so you won’t even have to pay a penny at the time of entering. What are you waiting for?
