    Hopefully things will get going a bit earlier than that.

    30 shot FT and 20 shot Silhouette.

    There should be a food wagon and hopefully the toilet will have unfrozen by then:D

    Not sure what the post code is for the Club house, or if in fact we have one, but these co ordinates should get you to us.

    Latitude 52.665361
    Longitude -1.223731

    The ground is located on the road between Groby Village and Groby Pool, when heading towards Newtown Linford. After leaving the village, you pass beneath a dual carriageway and the road rises a touch and we are on the left hand side. If you reach Groby Pool, you have past us.

    Regards

    Val

    No Gary, Dowry hill is my favourite Ft ground. Cant afford to miss the chance to shoot there.

    Junction 22, turn left off the motorway towards leicester.
    straight on at 2 roundabouts.
    After the 2nd roundabout you will drop down a big hill. Speed camera at bottom of hill:mad:
    go through some traffic lights and start to climb again.
    As the road levels out there is a short slip road, take this.
    It doubles back on itself and at the bottom turn right.
    The entrance to our ground is about 50yds on the left before the bend.

    Hope that helps.

    Parking is a little bit tight so if everyone could try and park in close to each other and sensibly that would help us no end.

    Look forward to seeing you all there.

    James

    I expect that we will aim to get to the club for 7:30 ish, once we have checked the range for any problems then I don't see why the zero range shouldn't open along with the FT course shortly after. As a guess sometime between 8 and 8:30.

    See you all there

    Winter League Round 6 Dowry Hill

    Guys

    I see that this is a league event round 6, would Jill and I be allowed to come along and take part? This would be our second shoot so still beginners, we realise we will can not take part in the competition but the experience would be useful, plus Jill needs to break in her new rifle :D
