Note – the 2014 Growler is being scheduled, check back for announcements very soon!
It started with a ShootClay member who threatened to quit the sport after a particularly poor run of results. The outpouring of support that followed led Graham Rowley to cancel his threat and reverse his fortunes! Now, he’s organised a charity shoot to recognise the most improved shooter in an event that the ShootClay Forum are lovingly referring to as ‘The Growler’ (after Grahams online nickname).
Forum members from all over the country will be converging on Saturday March 16th at Ian Coleys Shooting School, in Andoversford, nr Cheltenham, Gloucestershire to take part in a 150 target shoot – covering Sporting, Trap and Compak and organised entirely by members of the ShootClay community. The winner will be the person that shoots the most over their average from three recent shoots – nobody will go home empty handed with a ‘fur and feather’ system where every entrant brings a prize, and each entrant will be donating to the Prostate Cancer UK charity in honour of fellow forum members who are currently suffering.
In addition – members of the Shooting Community have rallied round with excellent prizes for a raffle to run alongside the day, including places on a Clay Shooting Success Masterclass with Ben Husthwaite and Phil Coley, cartridges and training DVD’s.
Even the worst shot of the day will go home with a special prize – a free coaching session with England Sporting Team Captain, Ed Solomons.
It looks like this will be an excellent day out, at a top shooting ground – and all in aid of a good cause. The ShootClay Team are proud to be involved in this excellent event.
