Improve your shooting with BASC
Wednesday, 22 August 2012
BASC will host a number of events to help people improve their shooting skills.
The one day ‘Improve your Shooting’ courses will include classroom and practical sessions with BASC staff and BASC-accredited shotgun coaches.
The Improve your Shooting days will be held on 29th August at the Mid Wales Shooting Centre, Caersws, on 4th September at Greenfields Entertainment, Oxfordshire, on 8th September at JC Marsh Shooting Centre, near Yarm, Stockton-on-Tees, and on 27th September near Tamworth in Staffordshire.
Peter Marshall, BASC's director of shooting standards, said: "If you are struggling to get consistent performance in the field or are relatively new to shooting, this is a great way of improving your shooting before the season starts."
The courses will cost £65 for BASC members and £100 for non-members. This includes the cost of clay targets, cartridges, lunch and refreshments.
