From the first meeting in the Young Peoples Institute (YPI) in George Street in Hull in January 1953, the Club has gone from strength to strength. The Association celebrated it’s 60th anniversary in 2013 and has a active membership.
The club actively encourages members to get involved in the Association and to this end has a number of sections to encourage this. This includes a Clay Pigeon Section which holds regular tuition and competitions throughout the summer months. Prizes and trophies are competed for on a regular basis. The section regulary raises money for special causes events and club funds through organised charity shoots.
Similarly during the summer the Dog Training Section offers tuition and facilities to improve dog handling skills. Weekly sessions are held on the Association’s own land.
The Conservation and Public Relations Section oversees the Association’s involvement in all aspects of conservation including the development of the Club’s own conservation ponds and wildlife and habitat improvement projects. The Section also actively promotes the Association’s activities and promotes wildfowling and fieldsports in general. The Associations involvement with conservation projects helps to improve the public perception of wildfowling and Field sports in general.
