A Day's Shoot in Pictures
The gallery here provides a summary of some of the moments and memories from a day's shoot in March 2008.
Two views of the fireplace at the Club House

If you are shooting on a cold day in winter, the Club House provides excellent comfort. If you are there during your summer holiday the fireplace still provides a sense of homeliness



As befitting a Clay Pigeon club house there are many photos of game and stuffed animals

The raki tastes good after the exercise
