In 1963 the small body of men that owned the ground for private shoots decided to increase the membership for the purpose of progressing clay shooting.
When friends joined the Club they became a share holder in the ground and its assets and this practice is still valid to this day. Fareham Clay Target Club is one of the largest member owned clubs in the country, with the members as the owners, the club is run by an elected management team each year made up of what we call working members.
The club has several Trustees, these are long term members and have all been involved with the running of the club at some stage. The position of trustee can only be gained on the death or a trustee standing down, when this occurs a new trustee will be voted in at an AGM held in March each year.
We then have the officers of the club, President, Vice President, Chairman, Vice Chairman, Secretary, Treasurer and a body of volunteer workers that make up the management team that organise and run the shoots and the day to day running of the club.
All finances are controlled by the Treasurer and any profits from the shoots all go back into the running of the club and to increasing the club assets such as traps, building projects and maintenance.
So please remember this club is run by its members for its members so we therefore have some rules that every member should consider and stick to at all times. On successful acceptance you will be given a little blue rule book by the Secretary, please read it carefully and stick to the rules within.
The aim of the founder members and the management teams over the years is to promote the sport of clay shooting, to have a sporting attitude at all times and to respect all those around you, but most of all to enjoy the shooting and the club's surroundings
