2017 FITASC Euro­pean Sport­ing Cham­pi­onships to be held in UK

Sporting Shooter - - Clay News -

The 50th FITASC Euro­pean Sport­ing Cham­pi­onship is to take place at Lul­worth Cas­tle in Dorset, from 8-11 June this year; Purbeck Events have been ap­pointed or­gan­is­ers by FITASC.

In­ter­na­tional course de­signer Gra­ham Brown, of Purbeck Shoot­ing School, de­cided on Lul­worth as the ideal venue for this year’s event thanks to its easy air and sea ac­cess from Europe, its beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion at the heart of the Juras­sic Coast, and its prox­im­ity to plenty of lo­cal ac­com­mo­da­tion and vis­i­tor at­trac­tions.

The com­pe­ti­tion it­self runs over four days with com­peti­tors shoot­ing 50 tar­gets per day. A trade vil­lage will be in situ for the du­ra­tion of the event, with a coun­try fair tak­ing place along­side the late-af­ter­noon ti­tle shoot-offs.

Amy Latham, events co­or­di­na­tor at Purbeck Shoot­ing School, com­mented: “An­nu­ally, the event trav­els around Europe and has not vis­ited Great Bri­tain for many years. It is a priv­i­lege and a very unique op­por­tu­nity to be able to hold this event and it can­not be un­der­stated how much the rep­u­ta­tion of Gra­ham Brown and Purbeck Shoot­ing School has had in se­cur­ing this de­ci­sion. The event will gain huge me­dia cov­er­age in­clud­ing tele­vi­sion, and will be the most cel­e­brated shoot­ing event held within Europe dur­ing the cal­en­dar year.”

His­toric Lul­worth Cas­tle in Dorset will host the FITASC Sport­ing Cham­pi­onship in June this year
