the Annual Crean Hill Gun Show

A good time was had by all and several hundred smiling

visitors made the day worth while.

an indispensable part of the running of the show. 

Thanks to all of the Directors who attended and 

thanks to Senior Member Tom Grylls for his tireless efforts on behalf

of the club; this year the all day job of the selling of all the draw tickets.

Welcome to our new members who signed up at the gun show thanks

to the efforts of Director Pauline Newman.
