There are still places remaining for Birmingham Bisley at Kingsbury, both FTR and TR, on 4th and 5th June, including single day entries.

I am sure you will agree it is important to support shooting away from Bisley, so please enter if you possibly can. It’s a great range (and we do have wind flags!)

Come for a single day if you can’t manage the weekend!  

More information and the entry form can be found here:

There are cups and medals for the separate days as well as the two-day aggregates.

I await your entry form!
