Club switches on to energy saver
BIGGENDEN Rifle Club has invested in its future by installing solar panels at its complex.
Club member Brian Day said the club would reap the rewards as it would be making money.
“Only having a handful of meetings a month, the club doesn’t spend much on electricity,” he said.
“In the future we should be able to attract more members by keeping shooting costs and membership the same.
“Luckily for the club we got in before the 44 cents was discontinued.”
Club president Lofty Wendt said it was a great initiative that would benefit members.
“A big plus, it will help reduce costs for members,” Wendt said. “Plus it is clean, green energy. “An added bonus is Day Electrical installed it at no charge.”
Day said the club held its competition days on the first and third Saturday afternoons of the month.
“Visitors and new members are always most welcome,” Day said.
“We will even supply the necessary gear.”
