New club re­port

Air Gunner - - Your Letters - Neil Davis

Great mag­a­zine! I have been read­ing Air Gun­ner for years now and just thought I would con­tact you to tell you about a great new air­gun club I have joined in Read­ing, Berk­shire. The club is Read­ing Air Tar­get Shoot­ing Club, as seen in an ar­ti­cle in Air Gun­ner about a new club soon to be opened, and I must say it is one of the most friendly clubs I have ever be­longed to - I have usu­ally found most clubs a bit cliquey. They have a cov­ered shoot­ing gallery for 10, 20 and 30m tar­get shoot­ing, with a longer 100m range in plan­ning. It was a mir­a­cle that I read this small ar­ti­cle just as I had been turned down for mem­ber­ship of an­other club days be­fore. Hav­ing re­cently given up work­ing to care for my el­derly par­ents, who are dis­abled and have Alzheimer’s dis­ease, I find my weekly vis­its to the club a real tonic. I would like to tell you and your read­ers how im­por­tant it is to sup­port th­ese small, lo­cal clubs be­cause they of­fer peo­ple like my­self a way of re­join­ing so­ci­ety. How about in­clud­ing a fol­low-up ar­ti­cle on this club in a fu­ture is­sue?
