Many Dodgers will not remember the days when every trap was operated manually by someone imaginatively called ‘The Trapper’.
Every clay was hand loaded and released by this much verbally abused soul. Many Dodgers will not have set a course for others to shoot. KotR has acted as a trapper and has been involved is setting the targets for a shoot.
One thing is certain. If you set a course, you will get criticism from some shooters. There was some grumbling about the course this week. Constructive criticism however, would always be useful. We had expected a change, and we experienced a demanding course with the winter sun making the targets difficult to see.
We were also exposed for the first time to HWSG new acquisition – a ‘cherry picker’! This was throwing a target for a considerable distance along the field towards the skeet area. The sky was bright and the targets were heading towards the sun. Many of us found it impossible to see them. However, Bob J managed to buggerate most of them. We will look forward to trying more targets from this trap in future.
No-one managed to break the sixty barrier this week. Len was high gun with 59/75. Chris shot his personal best for the year, taking the weekly handicap medal. Dave N also managed a personal best for the year so far.
We were also treated to a cunning rabbit target. At least that’s what KotR though it had been called! The sun played no part in us failing to break the bloody thing! Special mention to Dave N for hitting one. Well done to anyone else who managed a kill.
Those of us who ventured to South Worcester experienced a fine afternoon with once again, excellent targets. Len continued to shoot well and was high gun with 82/100. Trevor very pleased with the performance of his .410 which hit 71/100.
