The Society will be holding its annual weekend meeting on 13/14 May 2017 at the five-star luxury spa and golf Celtic Manor Resort in South Wales, located in the beautiful Usk Valley within 2000 acres of parkland.
We have been given excellent accommodation rates at the resort including full English breakfast and we anticipate a really great weekend.
Saturday will revolve around a series of seminars on BDS work and a gourmet venison master class, and the AGM will take place on the Sunday.
Urgent action has been sought to eradicate a fast-breeding and evasive species of Chinese deer that threatens to eat Northern Ireland “out of house and home”. Over 100 sightings of the Reeves Muntjac deer have been reported – primarily in the Ards Peninsula – prompting DUP Assemblyman Jim Wells to call for the removal of this dangerous species before it gets out of control.

We have had reports from the police of cases where FAC and SGC holders have lapsed into unlawful possession, either through forgetting to renew, or through moving house and forgetting to advise the police. Not only does this place the certificate holder in illegal possession of firearms, but ties up police time chasing up and even tracing them. This is unhelpful to the shooting community as a whole, as well as your Society. The Police's time is better spent dealing with grants, renewals and variations.
Please ensure you do not fall into this situation! If you have questions or concerns we are here to help.
