BASC’s chairman Peter Glenser QC and Northern director Duncan Thomas gave presentations on shooting sports and social media and firearms certificate ownership at a game conference at Newton Rigg College.
They addressed more than 100 attendees including 40 students at the event.
Duncan Thomas said: “This was yet another quality event organised by Newton Rigg College. It is always a pleasure to present a talk at this venue especially alongside so many great associated trades and organisations.
“Newton Rigg’s reputation as a quality land-based centre of learning goes far.”
Peter Glenser QC said: “We were delighted to have the opportunity to meet some of latest generation at this event. Good luck to them for the remainder of their studies and best wishes for the future.”
Curtis Mossop, senior lecturer and course manager at Newton Rigg, said: “The game and wildlife department at Newton Rigg reached its 25th birthday this year; this milestone also coincided with our biennial game conference held in partnership with Marsdens Game Feeds.
“Having the support of BASC helped immensely. Both Peter and Duncan’s sessions were very well attended and informative, especially for the large group of students who were in attendance. This event, attended by a variety of organisations and charities, helped to highlight the importance of working together to move forward. Cohesion is key.”
