The weather was particularly unkind today and sensible people stayed indoors. Most of those who ventured to HWSG suffered for their sport. At South Worcester, it was not as bad as expected, and the surrounding mounds of earth on the ground, shielded us from the biting wind.
No-one scored in the sixties, Julian was high gun with a creditable 58/75. Simon also shot well and is this week’s handicap winner.
Despite the conditions, we had seventeen Dodgers shooting in four squads. Gary managed to shoot with us for the first time this year, scoring a very creditable 51/75. He also brought along his wife, Sarah, who was then able to see what we get up to. Gary was squadded with Ian’s merry little band and Ian was able to keep Sarah informed as to what was going on. She must be a very good listener!
Apart from the conditions, the course also had a number of very testing targets. The ‘rabbit’ is a particularly vicious little beast. Well done to anyone who has managed to regularly break this one.
It was at South Worcester when Trevor realised that he should have stayed at home as well. Treating his 20 gauge Guerini to a day out, it scored a reasonable 52/75 at HWSG. It is unclear when the barrels became bent, but it was probably in transit between the two grounds.
Dave and Len, as usual were shooting well and looked likely they would score in the eighties. Trevor was hoping he would manage fifty percent! One stand had five pairs of ‘loopers’. These were all missed with aplomb. Will try again next week.
