Simulated driven clay event to take place in Coverdale

A simulated driven clay event is to be held on the Agglethorpe Estate in Coverdale next month.

The event, which is open to everyone, will take place on June 4 and 5, with a further charity clay day taking place on June 6 and will see teams of four shooting simulated driven game targets at stands.

Friday and Saturday are both corporate days offering teams both full hospitality and shooting starting with breakfast and concluding with lunch at the nearby Saddle Room Restaurant, as well as staggered starting times and chaperoned transport around the estate.

Sunday, June 6 will be the estate charity day in support of Herriot Hospice Homecare and the Yorkshire Air Ambulance, as well as the new Captain Tom Foundation and teams of four will shoot 500 clays targets across five challenging stands.

Organiser Tim Gibson said: “With Covid restrictions now being eased, we know there are a lot of people keen to get out and about again and enjoy shooting in this area.

“The Agglethorpe Estate Driven Clay Days are aimed at getting small groups of friends back out into the countryside together doing something they enjoy.

“Our corporate days offer all the trappings of a traditional game day with fantastic hospitality at The Saddle Room and our charity day will be great fun and an opportunity to shoot some really sporting and challenging targets out of season around the estate.

“All our stands have been carefully selected and set out by Erik Aaron Shooting and his experienced team who run events like this across the country all year round so you can be assured that you’re guaranteed a great day.”

Booking for each of the days is essential and the closing date for entries is Wednesday 2nd June.
