Arthur Smith Memorial Trophy 50 Bird Sporting – Wed 8th July 2020

We’re really pleased to announce the fifth Arthur Smith competition to be held here at Mid Norfolk Shooting Ground. Sad this year as it will be our first memorial shoot, as Arthus passed away in February this year. Many of you will know Arthur as he was a regular face at the shooting ground for 50 years and trained and shot with many shooters here. He was a much-loved figure and we felt he deserved a shoot to celebrate his dedication to shooting and particularly Mid Norfolk Shooting Ground for so many years. We were pleased that he got to be part of the first 4 shoots and know he enjoyed giving the trophy out each year.

The 50 bird sporting competition is open to all
Shooting from 5pm-7.30pm (all shooting must end by 7.30pm latest)

Award giving approx 8pm (Arthur Smith trophy awarded to the high gun)
Self scored on a trust basis
Re-entries welcome
