General Information :
We have all the kit new members need to try out shooting – in fact some people carry on using the club equipment, though there is a huge benefit in people getting their own kit if they take to the sport. I would certainly not suggest people spend money buying equipment until they know they will carry on with the sport. The only exception is ear defenders. Whilst we have some at the club, it is not easy to clean them between uses, so I suggest people bring their own. Nothing fancy required, DIY type ear defenders will suffice for the type of shooting we do.
Costs are quite low. Annual subs are £35. In addition, each member pays £2 per club night they attend – this goes toward immediate costs – electricity etc. Junior (under 18) membership is £20 and £1 per attendance. Ammunition starts from £3.50 for a box 50 – that will last on average, 2 weeks. No other costs involved, unless you get the bug and buy all your own stuff!
For people who live in or near Weston-super-Mare, or Bridgwater and would prefer to join their “home town club”, I do like to advise them that both those Clubs use Burnham’s range but on different evenings – Weston meet Wednesdays and Bridgwater (Sedgemoor) meet Tuesdays. If you would prefer to join one of those clubs, please let me know and I can provide you contact details. However, wherever you live, you are more than welcome to join Burnham – some of our members live as far away as Bristol and even Birmingham!
Our initial training evenings for new or potential members, which is the first Thursday in every month. If you wish to visit the club on one of these evenings, I would appreciate knowing in advance if at all possible please, so that I can ensure the right people are there to brief you and to carry out the safety lessons.
