With the weather forecast looking good, what better way to spend this coming weekend than at the South Yorkshire Shooting Show and Game Fair, taking place at the famous Doncaster Racecourse (and Exhibition Centre)?
Running Saturday through Sunday (3rd and 4th October), the event is designed to combine the best in shooting and hunting equipment with country fair shows and activities that the whole family can enjoy. It’s also a great opportunity to learn about the UK’s game and wildlife conservation.
The inside shooting area will be devoted to all aspects of shooting, including gun stalls, shooting accessories, equipment and clothing. Hull Cartridge Co will have their airgun coaching team on hand, running an indoor airgun range were you can try out all the latest gear from the famous airgun name of Weihrauch – and there will be plenty of stalls and exhibitors where you can buy after a try! There’s even a 50-yard ‘dark’ range being run by Night Master so you can experience their night vision kit first hand…
The BASC will have a large presence at the event where their experts will be on hand to give advice on all aspects of shooting and as well as the well appointed indoor arena, there’s plenty to see and do outside.
Daily admission to the fair is £12 for adults, and the show runs from 09:00 until 17:00 – or you can buy a two-day pass for £20. Under-16s get in free when accompanied by an adult.
