Rifle Competition at Wedgnock in aid of the Overseas Team Fund:
15/16 November: Entry Form

Please note following the cancellation of the Arms Fair (see below), the raffle will now be drawn at Wedgnock on Sunday 16th November.

It is with regret that the Arms Fair scheduled for the 8th November 2014 has been cancelled. At this moment we have no requests for stalls, and has been cancelled to avoid a financial burden on the MLAGB. The intention is to run one next year at an earlier date to avoid clashing with other Arms Fairs at the Bisley Camp.

The next Council of Management meeting will be held at Bisley at 11am on Saturday 8 November.

Many MLAGB members are collectors of antique arms and accessories and the Association is proud of the part it plays in encouraging the preservation, study and research of our colourful and historic past. Muzzle loading today is an exciting sport, the variety of which is unmatched. From the casual target shooters through to the keenest marksman with international aspirations there is something to offer.
The MLAGB's own ranges near Warwick offer unrivalled facilities. The three separate ranges at 25m, 50m and 100m, each have covered firing points. They are sited in the heart of England with easy motorway access.
