How the Plymouth and District league has reduced over the last 50 years from 17 clubs and more than 350 shooters with 20-25 teams to the 4 clubs and teams today, after the sad demise of Plymouth Electricity in September 2010, with the loss of yet another range.

It can be assumed that at least 120 shooters attended that dinner out of a total of probably 300-350 shooters in the Plymouth and District local area.
