COMPETITIONS - We host annual competitions in photography, hunting, and target shooting with a varying prizes pool depending on the competition with the opportunity to take these to a national level.
CLUB NIGHTS - Occur monthly on the second Tuesday of the month, expect in January where there is no meeting. We try to arrange monthly guest speakers or other hunting & shooting related activities.
The club rooms are quite impressive!
