Sporting Shooter - - NEWS -

Set in the beau­ti­ful grounds of We­ston Park in Shrop­shire, the Mid­land Game Fair will this year be held on the 16-17 Septem­ber. For over 30 years the pop­u­lar show has cel­e­brated all things coun­try, and pro­vided fair­go­ers with a vast ar­ray of shop­ping, en­ter­tain­ment and com­pe­ti­tions to get their teeth into. This year’s event is no ex­cep­tion…

Guns and shoot­ing

Gun­mak­ers’ Row pro­vides shoot­ers of all dis­ci­plines with the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase guns from lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers, with a huge va­ri­ety on of­fer to sat­isfy ev­ery taste and bud­get. Those seek­ing a little more ac­tion should head to the Clay Shoot­ing Fes­ti­val, headed by BASC, where safety cour­ses, the coach­ing line, and a new ‘shoot­ing ex­pe­ri­ence’ of­fer fun and in­for­ma­tive ways to spend the day. A va­ri­ety of clay com­pe­ti­tions with great prizes and in­cen­tives will also be run­ning, in­clud­ing the Pro, Club, Ju­nior and Vet­eran com­pe­ti­tions. To top it all off, the Ladies Com­pe­ti­tion Grand Fi­nal will be hosted at the Fair, and all are wel­comed to the BASC Ladies Shoot­ing re­cep­tion on the BASC stand where they are invited to take the weight off their feet, en­joy a glass of bub­bly and some nib­bles, and dis­cover more about the great of­fers and dis­counts on of­fer. A new Field­sports Arena, hosted by Next Gen­er­a­tion Field­sports, of­fers a great va­ri­ety of field­sports-re­lated demos and ac­tiv­i­ties, in­clud­ing gun safety and pi­geon pluck­ing.

Dogs

Gundogs are ex­tremely well catered for at the Mid­land, with a port­fo­lio of events that not only showcase the out­stand­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics of work­ing gundogs, but are also great fun for dogs and own­ers alike. Along­side a va­ri­ety of gundog demon­stra­tions, scur­ries and have-a-go op­por­tu­ni­ties, the Chud­leys Gundog Cham­pi­onship is a must-see dis­play of ex­cel­lence, with the largest gundog prize fund in the world. Watch these ca­nine su­per­stars show us how it should be done. The Gundog Pavil­ion will also have over 30 breeds of gundog on show with breed rep­re­sen­ta­tives on hand to tell you more about their char­ac­ter­is­tics and tem­per­a­ments; es­sen­tial if you’re plan­ning on buy­ing a new dog, or just want to get your furry fix! Events for ter­ri­ers and lurchers are also avail­able, in­clud­ing the pre­mier event Coun­ty­man’s Weekly Cham­pion of Cham­pi­ons for earth and run­ning dogs.

And the rest…

Food is usu­ally high on ev­ery­one’s list of pri­or­i­ties, and a food fes­ti­val of­fer­ing count­less culi­nary de­lights along with real ale brew­ers and live demos should be enough to sat­isfy the most fe­ro­cious of food­ies. Kids can be kept en­ter­tained with all man­ner of have-a-go ac­tiv­i­ties, and the main arena will be host­ing sev­eral ex­cit­ing dis­plays. Don’t for­get to check out the Folk Roots mu­sic fes­ti­val stage too, and dance off some of those sausage rolls!
