Yes, due to an unexpected change in circumstances a new venue had to be found and Shebbear Shooters will host this round, instead of South Devon.

Fore those who haven't been to Shebbear before, punch EX21 5HH into your satnav if you have one. If you are coming from up country via Exeter we are a shade under the hour from the end of the M5.

For those without satnav, take the A30 from Exeter westbound and get off at the A386 exit for Tavistock, it's the second of the two exits signposted Okehampton. At the end of the slip road turn right, go under the A30 and follow the A386 back towards Okehampton for about 2 miles. At the small roundabout go left on the A3079 signposted Holsworthy and Bude. This is quite a good road even though it's not dual carriageway; go through the village of Halwill Junction and another 4 or 5 miles brings you to a T junction where the A3079 meets the A3072.

From this point there will be FT fingerboards pointing you in the correct direction.

Go right on the A3072 for about a quarter of a mile, then left by the Bickford Arms pub. Follow this road for five miles in all, going over the river and up the other side of the valley, and IGNORE the signs that say turn left for Shebbear. You will come to a 30 mph limit sign, go over one crossroads and you will soon see the national speed limit sign. The entrance to our ground is on the left, immediately before this sign. Loads of parking space in the field. Park close to the hedge on the right if you can.

At the moment the ground is firm; if we get lots of rain in the next fortnight it will be softer.
