West Lancashire Welcomes the
16th National Masonic Clay Shooting Championships
West Lancashire were instrumental in starting the National Masonic Clay Shooting Championships in 2002 and hosted it four times over the next 7 years.
The Championship is now recognised throughout the Masonic fraternity and attracts entries from some 18 or 20 provinces every year and entry numbers have exceeded 200 a far cry from the 4 Provinces and 70 entries in the early days.
Whilst Lancashire does not boast a leading shooting ground, the smaller ones have always risen to the occasion to put on memorable event for those willing to travel to the north of England. We have no doubt that Ribblebank will do likewise.
Previously known as Hesketh Gun Club, Westwinds Shooting Ground and most recently as Webton Field Sports it became Ribblebank Field Sports some 3 years ago. They have modernised the clubhouse and instigated an equipment renewal and improvement program that involves new traps, towers, covered firing points and new layouts. ISU Skeet, Automatic Ball Trap, DTL are all scheduled in the near future to supplement the current English sporting layout.
West Lancashire have always tried to make the competition affordable and with an Entry Fee of just £45.00 believe they have succeeded again.
The 100 bird English Sporting will be shot over 12 or 14 Stands, depending on entry and a buffet meal will be available at the close of shooting
This area of West Lancashire provides lots of attractions for visitors and the resort of Southport is only 15 minutes from the ground. Southport is famous for its Lord Street shopping area and sands which never see the sea
All proceeds from this event will be going to the Masonic Charitable Foundation 2021 Festival. West Lancashire is the first Province to hold a festival for the MCF since its formation.
West Lancashire welcomes Masonic Clay shooters from all other Provinces and hope that they will enjoy this event and the short break away from home.
