The CSSC-TSA is a Home Office approved rifle club, catering for civil servants in and around Merseyside and has enjoyed a prosperous first year with a steadily growing membership. As part of our continuing efforts to promote target and shooting sports to Civil Servants throughout the North West, we have organised a fantastic opportunity for anyone to experience an introduction to the various shooting disciplines. The CSSC-TSA is based at a private members range in Liverpool. However, as part of our continuing growth as a rifle club, we were extremely lucky to receive affiliation to another range in Shropshire, ‘Minsterley Ranges’. (www.minsterleyranges.com). In association with Minsterley ranges, the CSSC-TSA is able to offer a full days shooting on an exclusive basis for Civil Service Sports Council members. This day long event is designed to provide participants with a thorough introduction to both shotgun and rifle shooting and will consist of clay pigeon shooting, 50 metre target rifle shooting and 100 metre target rifle shooting. The day will also incorporate some ‘fun’ elements as well, such as a practical demonstration of the impact of bullets on more solid, three dimensional targets (such as soft fruits and vegetables). It will also include, for the less feint hearted, and at a small additional cost, a chance to shoot with some larger and more unusual rifles, such as ‘Buffalo’ rifles. This day long event will be held at Minsterley Ranges, a fully certified and Home Office approved rifle range, and will be conducted under the supervision and instruction of Minsterley Ranges own staff. All Minsterley staff are very experienced shooters and the establishment itself offers one of the best shooting facilities in the country. The ranges are set in the middle of the Shropshire hills, approximately a two hour drive from Liverpool, amidst some of the most stunning scenery in the country. The manner, in which the establishment is managed, ensures that safety, which is of paramount importance, is always applied, yet, the atmosphere remains relaxed and enjoyable. After all, that’s what shooting is all about! What’s included in the day? Range Fees for exclusive access to the ranges for the entire day (approx 9am to 4pm). Gun Hire. Tuition Fees (Rifle and Shotgun) Ammunition (Rifle and Shotgun) Target Boards (Rifle Only) Clay Pigeons (Shotgun Only) Mid Day Meal/Refreshments What’s not included? Transport to and from Minsterley Ranges Additional Refreshments (tea/coffee etc) Additional/Special Ammunition (Very unlikely you will require more than is being supplied!!) How much will this all cost? Normally, for this type of event, you could expect to pay in excess of £65 per person. However, through affiliation to Minsterley Ranges and financial support from the CSSC, the fee to CSSC members for the entire day is only £37.50.

Who can attend? This event is open to all Civil Service Sports Council (CSSC) members in the North West, including those already members of the CSSC-TSA (Merseyside Area). Places are limited to a maximum of 40 and will be booked on a first come, first served basis. What do I need to do next? Read the Section 21 declaration of the Firearms act (attached) and sign and date it. Complete the attached booking form and return it, with the declaration to the address provided along with a cheque/postal order to the value of £37.50 made payable to CSSC-TSA Please note, bookings will not be accepted without a signed declaration or full payment in the form of a cheque/postal order On The Day Participants should arrive at the range at 9am. Transport is not being provided by the organisers, however, there are no objections if any of you wish to organise minibuses etc for groups or to organise car share. Due to the location of the range, coaches are not a practical solution. Your departure times should take into account the arranged arrival times and your journeys should be organised with this in mind. The location of the range is quite remote; however, suggested travel routes from Liverpool have been attached to this notice. On arrival at the range, you will be required to report to the club house/shop and register your arrival with the organiser. Further instructions will then be issued as to the procedures to be adhered to over the course of the day and the order of events. As I have already said, this is a unique opportunity to spend a great day out at one of England’s best shooting facilities at a heavily discounted price and promises to make for a great day out. I hope you can come along and look forward to greeting you at Minsterley Ranges. Russell Greenacre Secretary/President CSSC-TSA (Merseyside)
