Im addition to teh British Side x Side Championship, there is an additional competition:

The Hurlingham Cup.

This is also on the bill, while the British Side-by-side Championship is taking place. It is a live-pigeon trap-shooting inspired event. The targets are ZZ (or Helice) and simulate the flight of a pigeon from a trap. They are much more ramdom in flight than conventional clays.

Entry is on the day and prizes are to be announced.

The 5 bird shoot is inspired by the origins of clay shooting, and will replicate live pigeon shooting with Helice targets. 

The competition will work on a points system: hit with 1st barrel = 3 points, hit with 2nd barrel = 1 point, miss = 0 points.

Entry £10. 

This is always an entertaining event and is usually well attended. AGL have a great ground and facilities and the staff are invariably helpful and friendly. Well worth avisit.
