The Alex Boddy Charity HFT & FT Shoot at Meon Valley
Calendar: Default Calendar
My Empire of Dirt
13th September 2015
(Posted on behalf of Mike at MVAC)

The Meon Valley Airgun Club Charity Shoot in memory of Alex Boddy will take place on the 13th September 2015.

This is an open invitation to all shooters of both styles of FT & HFT & both styles will be allowed on the day

Targets will be set from 8 - 55yards with scoring using FT rules.

Entries will be 10 on the day and all monies raised will go to "The Rosemary Foundation" there will also be a prize raffle and trophy awards to take place at the end of the day.

food and refreshments will be available all day via a chuck waggon (burger van)

The event will be held at our Hen Wood site - go to for directions and entries from 9am -11am.

Alex Boddy was one of only two members alongside his wife "Judit" who shot FT at mvac , he was a very popular and much liked member of the club and encapsulated the spirit of what our sport entails, always ready to help others.
Alex was always smiling and constantly trying to be the best he could, even after he was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour Alex still continued to be an active member.

this is a fun charity shoot and you will be able to shoot FT prone and HFT sitting on a bean bag

So please if you can, come along and help support us to raise as much as possible.

any questions or general enquires please contact Mike via PM or Email.

Many Thanks

Default Thank you, Air Arms!

I've just taken delivery of an ENORMOUS box of goodies that have very kindly been donated by Air Arms as raffle prizes for this event - huge thanks to Claire West and all the team at Air Arms for their very kind support.

Entry is just 10.00 and all money raised goes to the Rosemary Foundation, an often-overlooked charity that did so much for Alex and his wife Judit during their all-too-brief but so very important last few months and weeks together.

So, whether you shoot FT or HFT, do please come along and join in the fun on what will be an exceptional day's shooting, and help raise some money for a very worthwhile cause.

And who knows, you might just be one of the lucky people who walks away with one of the super prizes that are up for grabs!

Default Alex Boddy Charity HFT&FT

The members will be setting the course up over the next two weeks to ensure a great time is had by all shooting FT or HFT the course will have something to challenge everyone.

It's a wonderful place to shoot if you have never been there it is highly recommended that you attend this charity event just for the view and the woods. Burger van is good as well.

Look forward to seeing everyone there.
