East Anglian Open – Iceni club 17th August

Four of our members travelled down to Colchester to compete in the East Anglian Open  organised by Iceni Marksmen ARC. Broadlands had a good showing in the placings so congratulations to Simon Ayers achieving second place in AA grade, Ed Cable gaining third place in A grade and Kathy Johnson coming second in B grade. A superb course in the woods with a tricky wind made for interesting shooting. As a side note all proceeds were donated to the charity of choice of Iceni founder member Ron Crawford who sadly passed away recently.



BBQ and final summer series shoot 13th September

Lets have a good turnout for the final summer series shoot to be held on 13th September. Trophys will be awarded to the winning team at our annual dinner in February. We will be having a BBQ after the shoot so be prepared for Rogers cooking skills! Usual fare of burgers, sausages, bacon, egg and maybe some cake if you are good! Coffee and tea also available. Family members are welcome to come along and maybe have a go on the practice range if this air rifle lark is new to them. Remember — NO CHARGE its part of your membership fee.

Work Party 3rd August – members needed!

Yep – that dreaded phrase.  We are holding a work party on the morning of Sunday 3rd of August. We have had 45 tons of soil delivered with which we are going to raise the level of some of the shooting lanes and fill some holes in around the site.  Some of the lanes are sinking exposing the tree roots which makes mowing difficult – you know how you like the nice short grass! Obviously we wont shift all of the soil in one go but we will have a good try! Please turn up and lend a hand. We have  a couple of wheelbarrows but a few more would be good with shovels, rakes etc. We aim to start at 0930 and finish by midday. Bring a drink — Its August and the sun will be shining! And you thought we just go and shoot down there!




Who remembers this?

Found this when trawling the internet (as you do). Some old Broadlands pics from a few years ago.
