The Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust is holding a High Bird Challenge Clay Shoot on 25 June at Gurston Farm, Broad Chalke, near Salisbury. The day is being sponsored by Ottens Land Rover and every team member will have the opportunity of winning two guns on a guest day, regardless where they finish, on this famous high bird shoot.
The Gurston High Bird Challenge is a fun event which is geared principally towards the participation of game shooters. Although a number of prizes will be awarded at the end of the day, the event is predominately more about everyone having an enjoyable day out and raising money for two important charities.
Over the course of the event each team will be tested by 480 clay targets presented over a variety of individual layouts and team flushes, as set out by James Peckham of Promatic International Ltd. The individual with the best combined score attained on the three high bird stands will win the Gurston High Bird Challenge Trophy. The day also includes breakfast, champagne reception, barbecue lunch by Robinsons of Stockbridge and an auction.
The cost per team of four is £800 with proceeds going to the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust and Meningitis Research. For more information on entry, advertising or sponsorship details for the High Bird Challenge Clay Shoot on 25 June at Gurston Farm, please contact Rob Hitchings on 01722 780888.
