Disabled Air Gun Shoot – Lichfield

Wednesday 7th August 2013 was the date for the outdoor event which enabled disabled people to shoot air rifles in an organized setting.

Promoted by www.growingruralenterprise.co.uk and principally sponsored by Armex this was an educational and experience day for a significant group of disabled people from the locality of Lichfield.  In addition, a number of children present also had the opportunity to participate.
The whole event was staffed by friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable people from the air-rifle community as well as regular staff from the event organizers.
Safety, coupled with the opportunity for those attending to enjoy themselves in a friendly and helpful environment was the primary theme for the entire days activities.
Managerial and technical staff from Armex also attended to ensure that there would be no difficulties with the rifles and equipment.
Team Wild Media, who provided some of the prizes to be won by participants, and who represented NiteSite; the donator of the units, were also present at the shoot.

Photographic prints from the event will be on sale here, at no more than cost to produce & deliver, to the organizers, sponsors and the day’s participants.
