Newly Extended High Tower
Already renowned for our high tower at Foymore Lodge, we have recently decided to increase the height further.  With the heightened tower now in commission, this allows us to give shooters a much greater range of targets and heights than ever before.  Whether you are an avid shooter of our high tower or wish to try it for the first time, why not come along and challenge yourself on this very popular facility on the range.

2013 Members BBQ & Shoot
Members recently enjoyed another annual club BBQ and shoot and there was plenty of competition over a large range of targets on the day.  With members vying for the top gun, the variety of targets on offer made for some very interesting shooting between the competitors. With all the score cards counted, 2013's top gun on the day was Andrew Beck with a very well deserved win. All club members are still welcome throughout the winter months for practise as usual.

First of the 2010 Foymore Lodge Club Shoots
Saturday 4 September proved to be a very competitive day for shooters from the Foymore Lodge membership scheme.  After a coffee to kick start the adrenaline, the members shot their way through the 50 bird sporting shoot. Newcomer to the club, Nigel Eakin, pipped Paddy McConville to the post with a score of 39/50.  There was plenty of humour and a few **** words along the way and following the analysis all enjoyed a bbq at the clubhouse.  Congratulations to Nigel!  No pressure for shoot number 2 Nigel!

Extreme Mud Madness
Sunday 28th March 2010 saw the return of the Mud Madness run.  Over 600 runners took part in the race and the weather could not have been better.  A glorious spring day set the scene for enthusiasts and fun-runners alike and with competitors from as far afield as Germany, America and France, there truly was an international flavour to this event.  The challenging course did not disappoint and all competitors were well muddied up by the end of the first lap.  By the second lap the obstacles were proving tougher with a little more mud to negotiate but all participants crossed the finishing line in respectable style.  For more details and pictures about the event, visit the website at www.mud-madness.com

Extra Muddy, Extra Mad - Mud Madness November 2008
Sunday 16 November 2008 saw the return of Mud Madness to Foymore Lodge, and what an event!  Who could think of a better way to spend a beautiful, sunny November afternoon, than to get wet and muddy from top to toe whilst running a 4km dash through ponds, bog land, drains and ditches.  Some 300 entrants took up the challenge risking life, limb and beauty for this adventurous day out in the countryside - congratulations to them all!  The official charity for the day was Marie Curie who were on hand offering much welcomed refreshments following the event. For more details and pictures about the event, visit the website at www.mud-madness.com

The Long Awaited Straightening of the 'Rabbit Run'
This month, history was made at Foymore Lodge Country Pursuits, with the long awaited straightening of the 'Rabbit Run,' otherwise known as the 'Mini Sporting' layout.  This fast and furious layout, consisting of 24 targets, shot over 4 stands proved elusive for many but not so for local clay pigeon shooter Richard Knipe.  In an outstanding display of shooting excellence he determinedly straightened all 24 targets.  The team at Foymore Lodge congratulate Richard in this fantastic achievement!
