Staffordshire Masonic Clay Shooting
The Staffordshire Masonic Clay Shooting
Association meets on the first Sunday of the month, at Doveridge Clay
Shooting Ground, Eaton Hall Farm, Upwoods Road, Doveridge, Ashbourne,
We are a friendly group and our shoot meetings are
informal and welcoming and most of all, fun! Most of the group are
experienced shots and some are qualified Shotgun Coaches. You do not require
previous experience to join us. Nor do you need to have your own gun. One of
our members will be pleased to let you use their gun.
We usually meet around
09:30hrs for coffee, and shoot from 10:00hrs to circa 11:45hrs. Time then
for another coffee and a chat before making our way to our respective
domiciles for Sunday lunch!
Although full members have
to be Masons, we welcome as guests of members, non-Masons, friends and
families. Ladies are particularly welcome and there are a few who shoot
regularly with us. Youngsters too will be made welcome but please let us
know in advance so we can ensure that a suitable calibre of gun can be made
Someone will always be there to provide tuition
and encouragement, and above all, ensure safety. Ear defenders and safety
glasses are strongly recommended and with prior notice, can be borrowed for
Our annual membership fee is £15 and there is a £2
cap, payable at each shoot.
You may bring your own
cartridges or purchase them at the on-site shop.
The cost of the clays is
equally divided between the number of shooters and a typical morning will
cost around £17 plus cartridges.
Doveridge Clay Shooting
Ground has a cafeteria on site where good food, coffee, tea etc, is
available throughout the day.
All monies raised will
eventually find its way to the 2024 Festival.
Provincial Clay Shooting Association and friends run the Annual Provincial
Charity Shoot. The Annual Charity Shoot has been taking place since 2008.
Since then, £9248, much of which has had the benefit of Gift Aid has been
raised for the first, the 2013 Festival and now for the 2024 Festival. Come
along and help us to continue to support the Province and the 2024 Festival.
