APSI Spring Courses completed

The first Basic course at Lady’s Wood SG is now completed, and following a run of poor weather we were fortunate to enjoy the best four days of 2018; and it didn’t snow once!

The second Basic course is also now completed. It was held at Doveridge Shooting Ground and enjoyed good weather throughout. What a difference two weeks can make!

First FITASC Course Level One completed

APSI held the first FITASC Level One course in mid May, with participants from seven nations participating. Doveridge Shooting Ground hosted the course and it proved a great success.

For further details and information on the next Level One and Level Two FITASC courses please contact Paul Bentley at

Refresher Courses and Workshops

In response to requests from members APSI will be offering a variety of one-day refresher courses and workshops, both clay and game orientated, and announcements regarding these will be made later in the year.

APSI Annual General Meeting, 2018

The APSI AGM 2018.

We’d like to thank the many members who made the effort to come to the AGM in March; it’s always nice to catch up with old friends and new members alike. West London Shooting Ground was the venue and they provided an excellent pre-meeting lunch. The APSI AGM experienced the biggest turnout in its 20 years, with well over 40 members attending. A blue ‘APSI 20 year’ tie made an appearance, and a few are still available for any member that fancies one. Give Chris Miles a call, unfortunately once they’re gone that’s it!

Steve Denny has stood down from the APSI Management Committee, having been involved since APSI’s formation back in 1998. As Shooting Ground Director at Holland and Holland he hosted APSI’s many meetings over the years and has contributed considerably to the Association’s success. He will of course be missed but has promised to remain in contact. He has been elected an Honorary Fellow of APSI, and we wish him well for the future.
