Walking towards the clubhouse at South Worcester, John G quite innocently asked KotR if he had done a newsletter this week. He reassured he had produced one and emailed it to our webmaster, Keith (Lord Brockhill of Hewell Grange ). We usually receive an email to say that the newsletter and scores had been updated but this seems to have gone astray. (Probably sent via BT – emails sent by Trevor occasionally have not arrived although appearing in the ‘sent’ folder).
Len said he would ‘have a word’. KotR soon received communication from Keith saying that he had sorted everything on Monday and sent us emails. Sincere apologies are sent to Keith for any undue grief he may have encountered and we reaffirm our thanks for what he does for the Dodgers.
We hope to treat him to something expensive this Christmas, like a small rum for instance. However, under these circumstances, the most appropriate way forward is to blame Malcolm. There are two reasons to apportion blame. Firstly, he comes from Worcester and secondly, it is doubtful that he will read this newsletter!
At HWSG this week, Len managed high gun with the only score in the 60’s. Nigel won the handicap medal with a personal best so far this year. Roger also hit his personal best for the year.
Unfortunately, the wind had blown one of the stand markers away and it was some time before we realised that there were only nine stands. This precipitated a great deal of queuing. The targets were just ordinary skeet targets but for some reason, many people did very poorly on the stand. This stand ruined a number of good cards.
At South Worcester, we had an observer for a period of time. Unusually, Trevor was using a 12g gauge but if he had taken his usual 20 gauge, our squad would have been using four different calibres. The onlooker was intrigued by Ian’s .410. He was even more intrigued when I began ‘dusting’ the targets. He had never used a .410 and Ian was quick to let him try. Yet someone else who enjoyed the experience.
There were some excellent targets again at SW but they were all within range of Ian’s little ‘spud gun’! Should anyone like to try a .410, please have a word with Trevor or Ian. Don’t miss out on the pleasure shooting small calibres brings. The only downside is the cost of cartridges.
The Dodgers had a good representation at The Extreme Shoot last week. There were 38 competitors and 8 of us attended. As usual, it was a very enjoyable experience. Very well organized and some very testing targets. The top score was 88/120 and Bob W managed 78. Bob J shot a very pleasing 73.
