All of the club’s voluntary committee members have a love for clay, rough and game shooting, coupled with a passion for organising PGPC events, for the shooting community within the property industry.
The PGPC has been running for over thirty-three years and has gone on from strength to strength each year. There are three area clubs: London (covering the South), Manchester (covering the North West) and Birmingham (covering the Midlands). Phrase books are available upon request, when visiting and shooting with our two sister clubs, North of The Watford Gap.
London tends to hold approximately seven events from April until October. Some of these shoots involve our Northern friends & colleagues, giving you a great opportunity to network throughout the country, whilst having fun enjoying a sport that you adore!
Our London club sponsor is Shaun Miller of Secure Site U.K., www.securesiteuk.co.uk
Apart from Shaun being a staunchly loyal and greatly valued supporter of The PGPC, Shaun is a very keen and active ﬁeld sportsman, clay shooter and owns Southdown Gun Club, just down the A24, near Worthing, West Sussex www.southdowngunclub.co.uk
PGPC annual membership is a mere £30 (yes! A mere £30 per year! When our club chairman, Roger Tuck informed Ed Wills (Assistant Editor of The Shooting Times) of this at our Annual Summer Shoot this year, Ed was so impressed by the absolute value for money, that he nearly dropped his Purdy!)
Fully paid-up PGPC members are added to our mailing list, giving you a ﬁrst preview of all our events and club news. You will also be entitled to a discounted price at our Annual Summer Shoot, which was held this year at Holland and Holland Shooting Ground, Northwood, Middlesex, one of the country’s most prestigious shooting grounds. This year we attracted over 90 guns.
PGPC Annual Summer Shoot – “The Big One!
An all-day 80 bird sporting event, plus a 80 bird team ﬂurry, charity stands with donations made to Lion Heart, our chosen charity which helps in supporting RICS professionals and their families in times of need – www.lionheart.org.uk
We always arrange surprise exploding clay targets into the mix, with bottles of champagne awarded to the guns who are lucky enough to hit them!
A musket/black powder display (including a “have a go yourself” after the display).
Subject to availability; a trick shooter is on hand to demonstrate what a pro- shooter can achieve with a shotgun, a high tower and a few eggs and melons! The day is ﬁnished oﬀ with a delicious three-course lunch, prizes awarded – across the board to both teams and individuals. Followed by chance to network with like-minded property professionals over a glass or two!
Check the Events page which will give you an idea of what to expect throughout the year. Our yearly calendar is usually emailed-out to members around February/March next year.
We tend to start the season in April with a Novice/Have a go shoot. Present members and new guns alike are encouraged to invite friends/family members and colleagues along to try-out the sport for the ﬁrst time and see what they’re missing out on! (Heidi Range of the girl group – Sugarbabes attended a couple of years ago and thoroughly enjoyed herself!)
If anybody who wishes to be added to next year’s membership list, please email or call me on: Email: email@example.com Mobile: 07815 608 232 so we can make a note to invite you in the spring.
Finally, some prospective and novice members wanting to get in to the sport, ask about shooting lessons, either as individuals or as a team. We would more than happy to recommend and introduce you to Chris Bird (Chief Instructor) at Holland and Holland. Chris and his highly qualiﬁed team will be more than happy to help and assist you in improving your shooting skills.
Please feel free to pass-on and circulate our club details to other property professionals. If you have any queries, please don’t hesitate to contact myself, Chris Warman or any of the PGPC team:
