It was a very bright day but bitterly cold. Even using Robert as a wind-break his squad was chilled to the core. Malcolm took the opportunity of his wife not going out, to borrow her hat; but no-one passed comment (In case you missed it, photo has been included).
The cold conditions were reflected in the scores, with Dave S high gun on 55/75. Peter shot very well and was just a target short of this, giving him the handicap medal for the week. The average score was 42.3.
There were fewer people to squad this week which gave the new system a good chance to operate. It seemed to work well and no negative comments have been received. Squad members have been making arrangements for their future shoots.
The Dodgers contingent at South Worcester saw competition between 12, 28 and .410 gauges. Len managed high gun with his semi-auto with 83/100 and was high gun and handicap winner. John G and Trevor managed 64 and 67 respectively. The problem with auto’s is always the spent cases. Len is very diligent at collecting and binning his cartridges.
The purpose built stick which he uses has an extremely strong magnet which would bring water to the eyes of anyone in the vicinity who was wearing an inferior quality Prince Albert. Unfortunately, it is also something else to forget/carry around. Arriving on one of the stands, Len went to load a cartridge into said stick. He realised that he had left his musket at the previous stand! It didn’t help that he was using a camouflaged gun slip.
Hopefully next week details of the Christmas awards will be published.
