Message from the Committee. Anyone with an Aber email won't be surprised 👇
Hi everyone,
Due to unforeseen circumstances with COVID, all sessions and socials are temporarily suspended. We will keep you up to date with all information and when we can start shooting again. We are very sorry that we can’t take a shoot out. We hope to see you soon, but most importantly stay safe and enjoy the rest of the semester.
Stay safe and try not to lose your head like everyone else!
Committee

COVID-19 Update...
SU Minibuses out of operation until January 2021. Individuals from different households cannot mix in cars so realistically the only way of getting to grounds is to drive yourself. This applies to private shoots.
We will have to fill out a form for every in-person activity including taking your temperature and do an extra -risk assessment if the activity isn't covered by the general COVID one I am now doing.
Committee will have to police social distancing, handwashing, mask-wearing etc.
For socials, the maximum is 30 or less according to the venue's own guidelines. No joint socials, no themes that encourage close contact. Basically, if you can do it virtually we'll be doing it virtually.
BUCS will be happening.
Any potential cost savings driving to Haimwood are probably offset by just one person per car so hypothetically I might go to Dovey and shoot 100 birds once a fortnight, and anyone else with their own car can meet me there.
Any other questions, feel free to comment down below or privately, whatever works. It would be nice to see any of you coming back to Aber in some capacity like a BBQ on the beach etc.
Cheers 👍
Captain
p.s. if we are found to be in breach of these rules the club could be suspended at best.

Ladies and Gentlemen, good morning.

Thank you all for coming to the Freshers Fair stand and meeting us on Tuesday, it was very nice meeting all of you.

The first social of the year is this Friday (28th), starting at Kanes Bar at 20:00. For those on campus, there will be committee members at the union steps above the zebra crossing between 19:30 - 19:45 who will walk everyone down to Kanes. For those of you on the seafront there will be committee members waiting by the bandstand at the same time. This is a social where we get to know all the new faces for the year and it has always been a good laugh, so do come.

Look forward to seeing you at Kanes.

Hello all, it recently occurred to us that most other societies and clubs associated with the university have some sort of clothing that allows them to stand out and be recognised when on campus or attending competitions. This is just a post to see how many people would be interested in said clothing and what kind of thing you would be looking for ? If interested please comment or pm either

Harlen or Andrew

Thanks

Photos from Aberystwyth University Clay Pigeon Shooting Club's post 12/02/2018

This year we had yet another successful Spring comp, with 3 other universities plus a team of Alumni attending. While the weather wasn’t great to start with, in typical Welsh fashion, it cleared up in the afternoon. Morale was kept high by our Captain, who also ensured the day ran smoothly. High gun for the day was Rupert Sewell with 84/100.

The results are as follows:
Top 3 Women:
1. Libby Letchford – Lancaster University 67/100
2. Charlotte Luther – Liverpool University 63/100
3. Emma Percival – Liverpool University 57/100
Top 3 Men:
1. Rupert Sewell – Aberystwyth Alumni 84/100
2. George Foster-Coles – Liverpool University 83/100
3. William Stonebridge – Aberystwyth University 76/100
Pool Shoot winner:
George Foster-Coles – Liverpool University

Congratulations to everyone and we hope you had an enjoyable and memorable experience. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!

Hello all,

There is a competition held by Lancaster university on the 3rd March. The cost will be £30 per person for 75 sporting clays. It is held at Kelbrook Shooting Lodge. There is no meal offered for this shoot, so we would be eating somewhere in Lancaster itself, we are unsure if we’re staying the night as of right now. If enough people want to come it may be viable. If anyone is interested in this competition, please like this post and comment. The cut off date for us is the 17th but as soon as possible is appreciated. Please make all payments to the following accounts and label your payments Lancaster Comp;
