Welcome through the door of the Gun Room and here we are on the threshold of autumn. Sometimes it seems that the year is over and we are just on the countdown to Christmas but for shooters nothing is ever over and we just switch to something more appropriate for the season. So enjoy your September and don’t forget to send in your news at email@example.com
There is always something special about August. Perhaps it is the start of the season’s change, perhaps it is the last few weeks of what we can really call the British summer. Maybe it’s because it is the school holidays and therefore the time when many people are relaxing on holiday. However, as far as these pages are concerned, August is special because it is the start of perhaps the most famous of shooting seasons and a chance to enjoy some sport before the weather becomes public enemy No 1. If your plans are to be out and about in August, may we wish you happy shooting!
Plenty of interest in shooting and archery activities at the Lincolnshire Show and at Brocklesby so it could well be that our numbers are continuing to swell as more and more people of all ages discover the satisfaction of hitting the target!
What links May and June? National Shooting Week which starts at the end of one month and shoots into the next. In fact, it is just over a week and a time when many local clubs and organisations hope to see new faces carefully picking up a gun for the first time. We are also nearer than ever to the 2012 Olympics and we have some local hope for a medal or two. Read on for more details and don’t forget to let us have news of your competition results.
Have you noticed how much shooting has developed in recent years in particular with more and more people taking up the sport. Equipment has become more sophisticated and many gun clubs are reporting increased memberships as people look for different forms of recreation. The sport is looking good and as the clock ticks away towards the 2012 Olympics the smell of gold, silver and bronze is in the air. Stick with Gun Room and we’ll keep you up to date.
