GMK has announced it will sponsor Britain’s leading DTL shooting weekend at Bywell Shooting Ground on 7-9 June 2013.
The weekend will consist of a sponsors day on the Friday, the Dougal Memorial Shoot on Saturday and culminate with the English Open on Sunday.
The weekend will also incorporate the Beretta 692 challenge which will be open to everyone who shoots on all three days. One shooter skilful enough to shoot 100/300 each day (300/900), will win a brand new Beretta 692 worth over £3,000. Bywell is renowned for presenting excellent targets – giving shooters the best opportunity to achieve such an amazing score.
The new Beretta 692 trap gun, which will be showcased at the event, illustrates the successful mix of tradition and technology, together with an elegant and striking new design, to make a truly outstanding shotgun. At its core, the gun has three key new features; Steelium Plus Barrels, a wider receiver and the inclusion of the new B FAST balance system.
Karl Waktare, Managing Director of GMK Ltd said: “We’re very pleased to be sponsoring this prestigious weekend, this presents us with a great opportunity to promote this stunning new competition shotgun and also to raise the profile of the shoot. The gauntlet has been laid down – good luck to all who shoot over the three days. I will be very happy to present the lucky man (or woman) with a score of 300/900 with a new 692! “
The DTL weekend will be shot at the impressive Bywell Shooting Ground, located in Felton, Northumberland directly off the A1. The event will be run by the venue manager, Allan Henry, who has shot for England eleven times and holds the great honour of captaining a winning team in Ireland.
