Concern has been raised about the discrepancy between clays purchased and clays used. This has become significant. It could be due to a number of reasons. It is not necessary for everyone in a squad to view the targets on each stand. Where a trap is frequently throwing ‘no birds’, it should be reported to Shane ASAP.
Shooters sometimes take additional targets, particularly where they have found the target to be testing. The above reasons still may not account for the discrepancy. Is everyone who pays for 75 targets just shooting the 75 or continuing on for the 100? It has occurred at other clubs that a group of shooters have booked on, to be joined later by an additional person who does not pay.
There is no suggestion that any of the Dodgers are involved, but just giving a ‘heads-up’ for us to report anything ‘unusual’. HWSG is our ‘home ground’ and the Dodgers really appreciate our club and the team who look after us. Let us be aware of what is happening. The people who are shooting more clays than they are entitled, will cost us money as the prices will surely go up to pay for them.
HWSG has produced an information pamphlet about chokes. It deals with identifying the choke from different manufacturers and suggesting their best use (see picture below). The Dodgers only really need improved cylinder and half choke, avoiding some chokes on the Sporting layout altogether.
The weather this week was a dismal affair, although it did remain dry during our shoots. KotR thanks for the warnings of attendance/absence. Scott managed to join us today and put in a respectable score on a course which gave us more difficulty than it should. Bob J and Len were high gun with 55/75. Bob takes it when his handicap is taken into consideration. Eric L takes the weekly handicap medal for the first time. The average score was well down at 43.9. Bob W and Julian both made it into the 50’s. The average score was well down at 43.9.
At South Worcester, we had a variety of calibres shooting. Trevor really pleased with the performance of the 410 Guerini breaking 70/100, just 7 targets behind Len. Dave is soon to get his hands on a 410. They should be made compulsory. Folk don’t know what they are missing.
