Sussex Masonic Shooting Sports Association
Many Sussex masons participate in a wide range of shooting sports; in particular clay pigeon competitions. In the local area this is supplemented by the many rough shoots, pheasant shoots and, of course in Chichester harbour, wildfowling.
Informal clay shoots provide an opportunity for non masons and partners as well as members to meet and get to know each other, united by a common interest in shooting.
In other provinces specific shooting sports lodges have been formed, it is intended that as interest builds in the area around Chichester that will be the case here.
Currently informal clay pigeon shoots are being held on a regular basis at Southdown Gun Club, usually on the morning of the first Wednesday in the month. This is conveniently located just north of Worthing near Findon and is right in the heart of the South Downs.
The dates for 2017 are as follows:
1st March, 5th April, 3rd May, 7th June, 5th July, 2nd August, 6th September, 4th October, 1st November, 6th December.
