Extra Activities

2016 Event

AS per last year we will be running a tin can pistol shooting area outside.

Additionally this year we will also have sideline Bell Target Competition.

Bell Target Shooting is amongst the oldest Pub and Club sports in the country. It started in the 1890’s after Queen Victoria was advised about the poor standard of shooting during the Boer War. Promoted by the likes of Lord Ednam and Baden Powell (Scouts Founder), by 1905 there was 1600 teams in Birmingham alone and 4000 nationally. Bell Target shooting is usually an indoor sport using .177 Air Rifles shooting at an all Steel Bell Target at a distance of either 6 or 7yds. We will be shooting this outside.

Anticipated Costs for each Additional Activity £1 per go.
