Air rifle course near Carlisle
« on: December 22, 2018, 08:54:27 am »
Iím surprised thereís not a thread here about Oakbank (not to be be confused with Oakleaf of course); this is a new venue at Longtown in Cumbria next to the Scots border. Thereís some Facebook activity and an open hft shoot on 30th Dec at 11am. It seems to be run by one guy as part of a fishery: fb link here https://m.facebook.com/profile.php?id=2377217242372117&ref=content_filter

Hi greg will be over at fort on the 30th. But any more info on the club would be good. Quite a few people not on face book so would be a good idea to post some details on here as that way there's more chance of more shooters being able to support a new club
