    The Famous Matt C BBS Summer Shoot 2013

    Guys

    We are looking for another Venue/Event for 2013 as East Devon FTC cannot host it.
    It may seem very early to be mentioning this but the sooner it is the sooner something can be arranged.

    We are looking for a venue/Event that could host a weekend,shooting on the Saturday and camping Fri,Sat,Travel back on the Sunday.
    A pub or Chippy local would be an advantage for Saturday night meal

    Matt Crouch (Matt C. on here) has always been the organiser of this event but has more pressing commitments so I have agreed to help out.

    The majority of the attendees are from the South West. So, does anyone from this area have any ideas for an alternative event?

    Steve,

    Thanks for taking this on. We have held it for eight years now, it is a shame that East devon do not wish to hold it. It is a great venue with some very emminent shooters over the years. I hope another club may assist and as always we can support a local charity and have a BBS social shoot.

    ATB, take care, Matt

    Terry,

    That looks like a cracking idea. I am all for a club hosting it and as in previous years, bringing in some new folk to target shooting in a well advised and safe environment. As you know the set up that evolved at East Devon was pretty good with the club, the pub and camping.It was a very good PR exercise for airgun shooting, and most appreciated by all the charities we have supported.
    I still need to locate the "Person who was drunk or on drugs" and the children "Wandering around with loaded guns unsupervised", as soon as I do I will speak with them. If anyone who was there can assist me with the identity that would be a help. In the mean time, Steve and I will work towards a gathering for 2013. Until then I await some evidence to substanciate what to my mind is tending towards slanderous allegations. I was the range marshall, and as far as I am completely satisfied, it did not happen on my watch....

    Take care, Matt C.

    I've been there on every single EDFTC/BBS shoot Matt, as you know, and I think these unfounded accusations need evidence bringing forward by those who made them.

    In the meantime, I shall regard them as the bullshit they are, and as a wholly untrue and invented excuse for not wanting to host this event again.
