July 2018 update
Not wanting to stand still, July sees more development to Mendip Shooting Ground.
Anyone wondering why there was a digger on the VITASC layout, we can confirm that we are installing an OTR (Olympic Trap) system on the VITASC layout. (For anyone not familiar with OTR click HERE ). Time frame for completion around 6 weeks.
The dry weather has finally allowed concrete re-laying in front of the main entrance to the clubhouse in order for a porch to be constructed, in readiness for the howling winds of winter! (Clearly not needed this week!!). Also the blockwork can now commence at the far end full bore rifle tunnel, to house the targets, backstop and range equipment. The time frame for this, all being well and subject to weather conditions, is end September / early October. We will issue the criteria for using the full-bore rifle range in due course.
New Clubhouse, Restaurant, Indoor Air Rifle Range and Conference facilities Opened.
Mendip Shooting Ground celebrated the opening of it's new purpose built Clubhouse, Restaurant, Indoor Air Rifle Range and Conference facilities over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th September 2017.
After much debate over the last few weeks as to which "celebrity" was going to cut the ribbon the honour fell to Alex Hill.
After two years of hard work by many people (or as Vernon put it "there are too many people to thank for getting us to this point, but you all know who you are"), the ribbon was cut and the Clubhouse was "officially" open.
