May I ask how much ground rent is for Tondu , is it similar to what I have mentioned.
Also how many Ft clubs does Wales have that put on regular shoots?
I did say in my post that most of our club are non comp / plinkers.
Our outgoings are much the same as most others, but as I said smaller clubs may well find speculating may well end up in accumulating as we have.
Having summer shoots is a good idea (To answer you OP), as its an easier stepping stone onto the Ft cuircit, i.e the regions that don't time local shoots, one less thing to put off a new shooter.
Shooters can then decide if many miles of travelling around the Uk is for them.
I presume you post is because you think summer shoots are not good for fT?
