Near the village of Shamley Green , Surrey 

It is a gorgeous valley surrounded by mature trees , rodedenrum bushes and mown grass areas .

I will be doing 100 sporting over 12 stands with a sportrap style pool shoot running at the same time

I'm beginning to suspect this won't be starting on the dates identified.  It's pretty close and there is nothing on the Clay Shooting Co's website about it and they aren't up as fixtures on the CPSA website.

Rumour of difficulty obtaining scorers in this new area for Steve Lovatt. So if you’re interested, (or have sensible teenagers who need a few quid) do contact him.. I gather a probable first shoot date is Friday 15th March..

Friday now?  Thought it moved from Sunday to Saturday.

That's very disappointing (if true,) Friday is a different ball game entirely. Like many others, I work in the week and was looking forward to a new Sunday shoot. There are plenty of midweek events that I also can't go to.

I believe the Friday offers better hope of getting scorers, oddly..

But not necessarily shooters, (not blaming you Will.)

I am definitely just the messenger. 😀. My pref would be Sunday, the week days are littered with shoots! (Which, just possibly you could blame me for, but that’s another story).

Really do hope this comes off, it's only 2 minutes up the road from me and would be fantastic if it happened. I'll have an ask around locally about scorers, at the risk of sounding like an idiot as a newbie shooter are there any qualifications required to be a scorer?

At least one working eye and be in possession of a coat. I’m sure on the job training would be given! I wrote a quick guide to assist my son when he did a bit last year, which I can send to anybody who wants it.

Saw that. I don't get enough annual leave to take a day off for a non-Reg shoot. Hope it takes off and moves to Saturdays.

+1 for weekend move. Already too many shoots mid week which I can’t attend due to work. 

Shame as this is on the doorstep.

Is this likely to be registered/competition shoots only for the ground or are there gonna be 'normal' days too?

This one will be non-reg, so go birds only and it’s effectively a practice round.
