The World's Greatest Outdoor Sporting Event takes
place in England annually at the end of July. The CLA Game Fair
attracts hundreds of thousands of sporting enthusiasts over its
three days of displays and events.
Its sheer size and energy is overwhelming
and the immense variety of shows, demonstrations and exhibitors
creates an infectious buzz that is not to be missed.
There is something for everyone to
see and do! to see and do! For the shotgun enthusiast, Gunmakers
Row is regarded as the greatest gathering of English and Continental
Gunmakers in Europe. This fantastic line-up makes for an incredible
selection of Best Guns... regardless of your budget or preference.
Non-shooting activities are in
abundance! The show is laid out around a main arena, with the
exhibitors' tents creating streets that make up a colorful Tented
City spread over a hundred acres or more. Each street has its
own theme and flavor, covering every conceivable and diverse country
pursuit, from dogs to donkeys and falcons to ferrets!
For 2005, I have put together a visit to the
UK organized around, and culminating in, the Game Fair.
This CLA Trip includes a variety
of tours, shows, exhibitions and sights. I will be your guide
throughout the week, ensuring everyone enjoys all that this fantastic
trip has to offer.
We are delighted to have teamed up with Alfonso
Fabrés to offer clients some of the finest red leg partridge

For a line of up to nine Guns, Alfonso
can provide memorable days of driven partridges with bags of 500
to 700 birds per day.
Alfonso's operation is situated in
Northern Spain's vast province of Castilla Y Leon.
The shooting with Alfonso is done
on a "double gun" basis with each shooter using a pair
of shotguns. Each Gun has the services of a cargedor who loads and
a secretario who records the number of birds hit by the Gun and
where they fall, which could be five hundred metres into a vertical
As Alfonso controls over 30,000 acres
of shooting rights for driving partridge (and a variety of big game
which are often seen on the drives), no two drives are alike. Due
to the fact that each Gun draws a peg number in the morning tomelot,
the rotation system on a pre-established formula, this ensures that
he or she shoots next to different guests and in new places on every
We recommend putting together a line of between 6 and 8 Guns or
trying to join a team to make up a total line of no more than 9
The price for each bird is $40.00
for the first 500 birds, and after that it drops to $35.00 per bird.
The charge per person, per night, to include all accommodation costs,
meals etc., is $425.00.
