We speak to Mhairi Morriss, Director of Glad Rags and Cartridge bags, to find out what is planned for the club and its members this year.
What’s on at Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags this year?
At Glad Rags we don’t just book time at a shooting ground and invite ladies to join us. We are unlike other shooting clubs, in that we do not hold our events in already established shooting grounds, instead we can be compared to a roving syndicate holding our clay shoots in magnificent exclusive venues. This gives our members the unique experience of shooting in different environments and varying landscapes.
We started the year with our first shoot of 2017 at a new venue the MacDonald Pittodrie House Hotel. The ladies were welcomed into the cosy “Billiard Room” with the fire roaring and the aroma of freshly brewed coffee and bacon and egg rolls. Allocated into groups according to their experience, they then enjoyed two hours of expert instruction followed by a delicious Sunday roast lunch.
Our February event was a ‘fun event’ at Raemoir House Hotel and in March it’s a sneaky Monday shoot, starting a little later and a sharp finish so busy Mum’s can still fit in the school run.
In April it’s our first afternoon tea shoot at the wonderful Saplinbrae House Hotel and in May I’m very much looking forward to our event at Pittodrie. It’s an event for all the family, for the first time we have invited the juniors (10 years+) to join us. Looking to the summer months we are back at Kincardine Castle in June, a midsummer evening shoot later in the month then an amazing new venue Kinnettles Castle in August.
2017 is going to be an amazing year for us, with new venues joining the already very impressive portfolio, our first junior shoot, midsummer event and another Ardmoor Glad Rags Challenge for the more competitive ladies. The club is going from strength to strength with more ladies wishing to come to each shoot and events selling out in record time. The feedback from the ladies is always so positive, we all have so much fun, whether it’s holding a gun and shooting for the very first time or experienced guns wishing to improve, Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags is for all abilities.
