We are hoping to attend a minimum off three international competitions this year: The Phoenix to be held in Bisley at the end of May, the Irish Open at the beginning of July and the German Open in November.

This event will incorporate the international shotgun  and gallery rifle matches with the shotgun being held on the Friday and the Gallery rifle being held on the Monday  (all dates and times of internationals will be confirmed closer to the time). Registration details of the match will be released soon.  I have attached a guide to attending the Phoenix which was written by both Frank Feeney and Karl O’Brien.
