    Good like with this fundraising project. Come on guys get in behind and BE PREPARED to show your support.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Date change for the possum shoot

    Hi there guys,

    The dates for the possum shoot have had to be changed due to a clash with another event. Apologies! The new dates are 18th to the 22nd of June. Same time and place. There will also be a wild game (venison) butchery demonstration between the weigh in and the prize giving.

    Come along and support some awesome kids that want to learn about the great outdoors!

    Cheers

    Yep. I spent the first 5 years of my life there and returned as a young teenager to shoot goats out the back of Hurleyville.

    Alton Scouts

    Great to hear about previous members and what they are up to. We have only just re formed the group after it was in reassess for about 9 years. We now have 25 younger kids and getting stronger. It is great to see them out learning about the outdoors and community. We recently moved the Alton War Memorial to a new location by the hall and had an ANZAC service this year with over 500 people. The newly reformed Keas and clubs did us proud presenting their wreaths and standing to attention for the service. There is a bit of an Alton revival going on at present, great to see. Shoot some possums and come back to visit us.

    Happy hunting!

    Here's hoping Muzza, it was a sad day when the 100 year old + pub closed it doors

    Possum shoot results

    The possum shoot went really well thank you, 12 teams, 712 unlucky possums and really interesting venison butchery demonstration by Dave Kelson. All teams went home with some great prizes. We will run another possum shoot same time next year.
