Directions

The club grounds are situated east of Queanbeyan on the north side of the Kings Highway. If you are leaving Queanbeyan, traveling towards Bungendore, drive 8.5 km past Red Rooster (corner Yass Road and Kings Highway). Not long before the turn off to the club, you will cross over the Molonglo River, then over a railway line (ACT/NSW border) and pass a corrugated iron shed (hay barn) on the left hand side. About 50 metres past the shed you will see two gates. The second gate leads down a road to the gun club (the first gate goes into a private house). The road is called Charcoal Kiln Road, but is not likely to be marked on many maps. The road is a gravel road.

On shoot days, the gate will be unlocked. Open the gate and pass through, ensuring the gate is closed behind you at all times. The surrounding land, including the road side verge, is used for stock grazing, so please ensure you close the gate and watch for wandering stock.

(It is worth noting that if you’re using Google Maps, it will most likely attempt to direct you to the club via Sutton Rd. There is no access through to the club from this direction, you can only access the club from the Kings Highway.)

Overview

Generally for this type of day we use a mixture of 4 or so target presentations to give you the best exposure to shotgun shooting and still keep it simple enough so the participants can enjoy breaking some clay targets.

What we usually do is break a round of 25 targets into two sections, the first as an introduction to get the participants used to the gun and shooting techniques, and the second which is a scored competition to see who the winner is! This format tends to bring out some competitive spirit in the group and makes for a good fun time.

You should reserve 2-3 hours to complete a round of 25 targets. If you wish to shoot a second round, add another hour or so.

There is a BBQ available if you wish to use it prior to the shooting. We supply tea, coffee as part of the event.

Pricing

The cost is $90 per round per shooter with a minimum booking fee of $900. This includes all targets, ammunition, gun use, safety equipment and instructors. There are no licensing requirements as the shooters will be under the supervision of an Authorised Instructor. A 50% deposit is required prior to the day to lock in your booking. The maximum group size we like to cater for in this format is about 20.

Participant Requirements

All people attending must have covered in shoes (no thongs). For any persons under the age of 18 years (must be over 12 years and physically capable) we will require parental permission and supervision.

Shooting is not permitted if persons are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
