Wouldn't mind making the trip, so long as it doesn't clash with work. Is it possible to have 2-3 dates to see which one gets most people? Don't mind helping out in any way I can.

I'm up for it depending on the date not clashing with other commitments, Heathers idea of a few dates and going for the most takers sounds like a plan :D

Diggle has a full calendar of shoots covering all disciplines - see www.diggleranges.com for the calendar.

Guests are always welcome at any of these shoots.

Alternatively, the ranges get very little use during the week - the range could be booked exclusively for the forum members. Any distance from 100 to 1000 yards with covered firing points if wet!

The Diggle daily range fee is £15. However, the ranges can be hired for the day from £250 - i.e for 25 shooters it would only be a tenner each.

There is plenty of accommodation in the area, limited bunkhouse accommodation on range and room for a few tents.

I suspect the problem may be agreeing what to shoot.

Cheers
Vince
