    The shooting club is within the grounds of a very large country estate house called COOMBE LODGE, Blagdon BS40 7RE. It is used primary as a wedding venue and can easily be found on the internet. The post code or Sat Nav Co-ordinates N51.329847 W -2.723735 degrees will take you to the main entrance driveway of Coombe Lodge estate. Go up the main drive and signs will be out on the day from there to take you exactly into the wood where the shoot will be located.

    If approaching from CHURCHILL on the A38, turn at the traffic lights and take the A368 (Bath Road) towards BLAGDON, (adjacent to a Fish and Chip shop). Follow towards BLAGDON for about 3 miles and you will see COOMBE LODGE on your left as you rise towards the top of a hill at Blagdon.

    The closest Premier Inn is at SIDCOT only about 6 miles away. There may be somewhere in Blagdon itself only 1/2 mile away.

    Any questions just pm or ask here :)

    This camp site is very close, say about 3 miles. I don't know what it like however, just that I know its location as I pass it when driving down to Avon Hawks.

    Hope this is helpful to you.

    Yup - the Summer grading list will come out after the Masters/Inters weekend and that's the grade you'll be for the GP's (unless you elect to shoot a higher grade).

    You might notice that there's a list of registered shooters at the top of the post - that list is automatically updated every 5 minutes by the new GP Scoring system ( Shaun-O-Matic 3000 ).

    You might also notice that some of the names are displayed in Red.

    Don't panic too much if your name is in red, what it means is that Shaun-O-Matic 3000 is struggling to match you up with the latest Grading list.

    If Shaun-O-Matic can't match you in the grading list then you'll be down as 'A' grade until we can match you in the list.

    There's no need to panic and please don't PM me (my PM box get's full quickly) - If your name has gone red, I'll already know about it and will at some point investigate why and hopefully sort it out before the GP.

    Once sorted your name should turn blue and you'll be moved into your correct grade.

    If your name's not in red please check the shooters list to make sure you've registered in the correct session and that you're in the grade you think you should be in.

    If you want to elect to shoot in a higher grade please contact either Me or Simon Evans and let us know (when we've updated your grade you should automagically move in the above list).

    That's just an alphabetical (by surname) list grouped into session and grade/class.

    Shaun-O-Matic 3000 will suggest lane allocations but these will be sent to the hosting region and not published unless the hosting region want to publish them.

    I know James likes to shoot the kneeling lanes sat down now but surely he's not doing a full GP Open or is that a different JamesO?

    I think James clicked 'Open' by mistake when he booked. You can sort out booking mistakes yourself by just re-booking with the correct information. Shaun-O-Matic 3000 will pick up the change the next time the Cuckoo pecks it (every 5 minutes)
