So it was time for a clear out! With the kind help of club members volunteering their Sunday morning (and afternoon if we're honest), we got through a lot of stuff and uncovered a little bit more club history in the process.

Some of us were surprised to learn that there is in fact... drum roll please... a second club room! We've spoken to veteran shooters in other clubs and they remember this room very well - apparently when shoulder-to-shoulder matches took place at Portsmouth City, the guest team were given their own club room and no interaction between teams was allowed! (How bizarre!) However, for some time now it has been used as a storeroom for everything whenever we had to tidy up. No longer!
|CSI Tom stands proudly alongside George and Adam in the now empty second range.|
|Is that a grin or a grimace at how much more there is still to clear out?|
|And yet more!|
|Getting it all into the trucks was fun. Sorry to the neighbours for any noise.|
|But it all went and the alleyway was left as tidy as we found it.|
|And parts of the range were left considerably tidier than we found them!|
