Entry to the exclusive Woodcock Club is exacting but relatively straightforward - shoot a witnessed right and left and you're eligible. Sounds easy? Find out how to join here.
The privilege of membership is through the achievement of shooting a right-and-left at woodcock before two witnesses. Note that a gun must not be lowered between shots.
As a member of the club you will be sent a certificate, a tie, a badge and an invitation to the annual dinner, which this year takes place in the magnificent Orangery at Blenheim Palace on Friday the 21st March, 2014. This event provides an opportunity for members to meet, exchange news and bid for the fantastic lots in the charity auction (in aid of the Game Conservancy Trust's research into woodcock). Club members who book their tickets before the 20th December will receive a £5 discount on the ticket price - paying just £75 a head instead of £80!
Members will also be kept informed with a regular newsletter.
If you think you are eligible to join, or for more information, contact Katharina Doyle on 020 3148 4741 e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
