BASC: New opportunity for men to break into shooting sports.
Tuesday, 28 August 2007
A new course, which is aimed at men who want try shooting sports but don't know where to start, has been organised by the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) in Northern Ireland.
The Men's Day, which will be held at Lisnalea Rod & Gun Club near Markethill on 20 October, came about after BASC Northern Ireland kept getting requests from men who wanted to attend an event similar to the ladies-only shoot days BASC has run at Lisnalea this year.
Amanda McCallion from BASC Northern Ireland said: "This event will interest men who have been keen to join a club or syndicate but have had difficulty making contacts, or anyone who is new to shooting and trying to decide which shooting discipline is the one for them."
Activities available on the day will include pistol, rifle, air-rifle, archery and clay shooting. BASC Shotgun Coaches will be on-hand to give advice and expert help. All equipment will be provided. The men's day will cost £30 per person including lunch.
For more information about the course please contact BASC Northern Ireland on 028 9260 5050.
