    Cambridge HFT Airgun Club are holding their infamous 'Winter Diabolical 2013 HFT shoot at Shepreth on Sunday 27th. January.

    A 30 target / 30 peg course definitely NOT to UKAHFT Rules ! A mixture of interesting shots, a few over the usual 45 yards and 3 or 4 novelty ones. Designed to challenge even the best of shooters… Yet shootable by all...

    Everyone is welcome, members and visitors alike. Juniors must be accompanied by a responsible adult over 21.

    The club is easy to find, either coming down from Cambridge / M11 turn off at Harston junction and head towards Royston. Or coming up from Royston take the Cambridge road. Shepreth is well signposted, head into the village and find the railway station. Head out of the village over the railway crossing past the station and about 400 yds it's the first farm on the left (Brook Farm)...

    Drive along to the end of the dirt track to find the club. Please keep your speed below 15 mph within the farm !


    Sunday 10 am latest book in for a 10:30 am start. Zeroing range is open from about 9 am to set up.

    Trophies for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in Open class, Recoiling, .22 and Junior.

    Entry Fee : £6.00 (includes Golden shot which is a separate non scoring 31st target for a cash draw)

    Tea, coffee, soft drinks and hot food at excellent prices from our fantastic catering crew...

    Will be as challenging as ever, perhaps more so :eek:

    See you there...

    Ground conditions & Parking

    Update:

    It being Shepreth, there's mud under the snow and the ground is saturated. The forcast says there's rain coming in which will make it worse.

    The farmer has strongly recommended we take only the most essential vehicles all the way down the track, and even they may well experience difficulty.

    The farmer suggests we park on the hardstanding by the first woods you come to, or along the concrete track (blocking in anyone on the hardstanding) or by the farm buildings down by the road. There's plenty of space by the farm buildings but please don't park along the bit in front of the bungalow. They'll put the bins out anyway to remind you.

    Checking the ground yesterday and the woods and course areas are fine. No mud at all...

    Just the top end of the track is a bit muddy (nothing unusual for this ground). Made it up there in an Astra ok. But use your discretion there's plenty of hard standing by the farm and first wood.

    Just a few more bits to do on Saturday and were all set :D

    Roll on Sunday
