Annual General Meetings

An Annual General Meeting is held every September to elect the members for the following club year, to discuss the state of the club, the clubs immediate future, and any further points that need agreeing upon. Of course an extraordinary committee meeting can be requested and held at any time through the year as necessary. Committee members can hold a particular position on the committee for a maximum term of 3 years, after which they must step down for a minimum of 1 year before they can re-apply.

All club members are free to approach any committee member if they have a request, a recommendation, or any comments regarding the club and it’s running at anytime during a club shoot. A private one to one can be arrange should this be more appropriate.

The aim of the club is to encourage a friendly, fun and relaxed place for our members to shoot, so any thoughts to assist this are always greatly received.
