3rd Saturday of each month
12.30pm – Sign on counter open (if you have signed on at the main range, bring your receipt as proof)
1.00pm – First squad kicks-off
5.00pm – All shooting completed or when the last squad is finished.
Both new and experienced competitors can compete in the same squad. For new shooters of clay targets, it is common to start slow, before trying to be competitive. It is important to focus on the fun side, and let the scores slowly improve as you gain experience and your confidence grows. Low Field provides that kind of environment.
