Coffs Gun Club (Clays) are holding a farmers shoot fundraiser.

SHOOT DAY FOR THE FARMERS

We are holding a fun shoot day for the farmers on our Multi Discipline day Saturday 25th August

There is no competition but a good day of comraderie knowing the money goes to Australian families struggling with the drought

All money collected on the day will go to Rural Aid for their distribution to the needy

The club will be providing clays, lunch etc so there is no costs and all income is donated. (Rural Aid are able to get the funds to farmers and families with the personal side of the problems)

Members and visitors are able to give more than shoot fees if they wish knowing that all the funds will be used in the donation (if you would like to give more and only shoot a couple of rounds your total goes the cause)

The program is

–          skeet, DTL, and simple 5 stand (easy targets for the fun side)

–          No competition just a fun day

–          We will have some different coloured targets so lucky shooters can win a bottle of wine

–      A raffle will be under way with prizes of 6 meat trays

–      Shoot any discipline you wish and as many rounds as you like

 

 

Our times for the day are

–          Set up 10.30

–          Shoot 11.00

–          Lunch break 12.30 to 1.30

–          Continue till say 3.30 to 4.00

–      raffle draws

–      after shoot comraderie and drinks

 

Shoot costs are our standard $10 per 25 targets

 
If you have friends or visitors who may wish to attend we are able to cater for unlicensed shooters (P650) and if sufficient we could run full squads

 
BBQ lunch of steak, sausage and salad will be available to purchase with all proceeds and no cost deductions again going to the donation fund

 
A raffle will be under way with prizes of 6 meat trays

 
Joanne and George are donating 12 bottles of wine for the novelty prizes
We would like to see as many members and visitors as possible attend the worthy cause and show support as well as a fun day with fellow members
