As you may or may not know MVAC have withdrawn from hosting the FT-GP this year and it is to now be at the Bisley ground.
This decision was not taken lightly but it was made after an open discussion held between all of the MVAC elected club officials and 20+ additional members present who were attending the Biathlon competition.
The tone of the meeting was that Meon Valley is primarily a HFT club and struggled to find members to shoot FT or even to help put on FT events.
A vote was taken and excluding the treasurer who abstained, the decision was 100% against carrying on with holding not only the FT-GP but also hosting the 2017-18 CSFTA-FT winter league shoot at Meon Valley.
This decision now frees MVAC to put all our efforts into making even more of a success of our 25th Anniversary “Bowman Classic Mage Shoot” on the 4th June and all the HFT competitions being held at Meon Valley this summer like the HFT Masters on the 13th August and the HFT Southern Hunters on the 19th November and we will also now be able to finish our new 70m outdoor range
Finally last but not least, we have this years HRS Winter League, which will have its first round at Meon Valley on the 29th October, shot to the new and improved Hunter Rules Winter League format.
