New Club Truro, Cornwall

Recommended Posts

A group of us have been given the chance to set up a new club in Cornwall.

The club is called Woodland Valley Airgun Club. We are insured for Public and Employers libility.

We have got an area of woodland to use with a small tent for shelter and admin.

Parking is limited but we can also use the farm yard which is within a very short walk.

We are close to the main A30 and Truro is 10 mins away so you can have a few hours shooting

while the family do the shops.

 

If anyones interested contact details on our website Woodland Valley Airgun Club.

 

So far the interest is very encouraging with 12 signed up members already.

We get alot more interest and signups from the website than we do from posters and flyers.

 

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I am curious. As there is already an air gun club just south of Truro I wonder why another has been set up nearby?

When we started planning 2 years ago CFT was located at Bodmin and we had many enquiries from air gunners around the area interested in a new club. We are quite lucky really as we have a 170 acre farm at Ladock as well as the area in Truro. We have a steady flow of enquiries and slowly the membership is building up.

I think that another club will give a wider choice to air gunners and help promote the sport further.

 

Hopefully this answers your question.

Does this club still exist? The link does not seem to work!

 

Any clues

 

Cheers

Should have had my glasses on when typing :wub:

 

Yes the club does still exist and has a steady flow of enquiries.

 

WVAGC or WVAGC

 

Either of the above links will get the site.

 

Cheers,

Kevin.

Just a quick update.

 

The club has gone from strength to strength in the last 2 years with over 40 members.

 

We have 2 woodland ranges with 30 targets on each and ranging from 9 to 62 yds plus a bell target at 90 yds, 1 course firing uphill and the other is downhill with both levelling out on the last few targets.

Also have a dedicated zeroing/plinking range with a range to 55 yds and a covered,seated firing point for 6 people at a time.

We are redesigning the pistol range and adding a hft range for pistols this year.

Just over a month ago the woodland we rented was sold and we had no indication until to late. We have to be out by the end of June with the site fully cleared.

 

The future looked bleak with no ground.

 

But some how and I don't know how we has secured another woodland area with masses of parking on hard surface and a short walk into the woods.

 

For the coming months we will still be running but with reduced facilities until they get built. The main thing is we are still here and shooting.

Glad to see the Club has gained a new ground, all the best for the future.

Might be an idea to head over to shooting the breeze and put your Club into their Club finder database to get a bit of free publicity. It might help with recruiting new members.
