CLAY SHOOT IN SUPPORT OF THE COUNTRYSIDE ALLIANCE
RABY CASTLE, STAINDROP, 4th JUNE 2018
By kind permission of Lord and Lady Barnard
A clay shoot in support of the Countryside Alliance is being held at Raby Castle on Monday 4th June 2018. This special sporting and social event, which is for a maximum of 25 teams each consisting of 4 guns, will consist of 6 simulated game drives comprising either 5 or 6 trap flushes of 100 clays each. 12 and 20 Bore Cartridges will be provided for all competitors.
Coffee and bacon sandwiches will be available in the Coach House from 8.30am, where teams will also need to register. A briefing will take place at 9.15am, after which teams will depart for their respective stands. On completion of shooting, there will be a champagne reception followed by a three course lunch with wines in the Castle, during which there will be a small auction of some very special lots, and the presentation of prizes.
The cost per team of four guns is £1,000, to include cartridges and lunch. There are also a small number of additional tickets available for non-shooting friends wishing to attend. These are at a cost of £70 a head, to include refreshments on arrival, the champagne reception, and lunch, but sadly they have to be on a first come first serve basis, as space in the Castle is strictly limited.
