The Alan Painting Handicap Shield
8th. March 2017
The Dodgers will shoot for this shield on 15th March. His big smile and warm handshake will always be remembered.
As this is a handicap shoot, it is important that we all shoot to the same rules. It is expected that the highest scores may be separated by less than one target so our somewhat generous interpretation of the rules during our normal Wednesday shoot needs to be tightened. As with the Christmas shoot, a reminder will be issued on the day.
This week we enjoyed another dry Wednesday. Some very testing targets awaited us but Bob W shot a blistering 65/75 with no one else anywhere near! This also give him the third ‘High Five’ badge to be awarded this year. He also won the handicap medal again this week. Very well done to Eric who posted an excellent 57 which again was well ahead of everyone else! Robert had a good round, just missing out on the handicap medal. The average score was 44.5 and there were twenty shooters in four squads.
Sam played truant from work to make his second Wednesday visit this year. Good to see Tony visit us for the first time this year, ably demonstrating that sartorial dyslexia was ‘alive and well’ in Worcestershire. Sue managed to shoot although with an injured hand. Still managed to shoot 45 targets though.
At South Worcester John G was unable to shoot. Off stalking for the day. An unnamed source suggested that a request had been made if anyone hired chain saws in the vicinity of Dudley Zoo.
