BASC will once again have a presence at Countryman Fairs’ Highclere Country Show.
The show will be held in the grounds of Highclere Castle – the iconic backdrop of ITV’s Downton Abbey – on 27th and 28th May.
Visitors to the BASC stand will be able to get information and advice on game and deer management, firearms and membership services. The stand will also feature members of the Langstone and District Wildfowling Club and Cornish Countryman Chris Green who will also be appearing in the countryside arena.
New for this year will be a demonstration of Taste of Game’s Game Changer project, which aims to teach 60,000 students how to cook game by 2020.
Regional representatives of BASC Ladies Shooting will be on hand to answer questions and sign up any new members.
Michelle Nudds from BASC South East said: “We are delighted to be attending the show at Highclere where we have the opportunity to meet our members from across the South East of England. We will be able to help them with advice on things such as firearms licensing, gundog training, deer stalking courses and much more. It is also a great opportunity to promote the work of BASC, our Young Shots events, Green Shoots Mapping project and game meat.”
Clay shooters will go head to head in the BASC National Clay Shooting Competition, which is being held as part of a Clay Shooting Festival hosted by BASC and Countryman Fairs at each of Countryman Fairs’ shows in 2018. Prizes will be up for grabs each day for the top shots and at each shoot, winners in each class will qualify for a place in the Grand Final at the Midland Game Fair in September.
BASC-accredited shotgun coaches will be giving coaching lessons throughout the two days on the coaching line and people will be able to try airgun shooting under the expert tuition of qualified coaches on the BASC airgun coaching stand.
