The Club has bid for and expects to receive funding from the Sports Board (SB) for a team of 6 to South Africa in April 2015. This funding is only for serving members though and for those who have a minimum of 3 Lottery tickets. The actual shooting dates are 10th- 18th April inclusive. Main costs, assuming the Sports Board grant and based on costs in 2014, will be: Accommodation (single room) £250, transport £200, entry fees £250 and flights are about £650 depending on catching the Virgin sale. Ammunition will be Club RUAG taken from UK. The SB grant of £500 can be offset against these costs of course. There may even be a small grant from the Club as well, but this may depend on the take up from the members.
Anyone seriously interested is requested to e-mail Chris Hockley, Neil Moxon and Karen Robertson as soon as possible.
A small amount saved each month would also be a good idea to defray the tour costs and we have a bank account set up just for the tour.
