Firstly, can the writer apologise for his grammatical shortcomings in last weeks newsletter.
It has now been corrected and David Nightingale's place at the top of the tree has now been reported correctly and adequately. Once again, well done David and congratulations on another great score this week. High gun on Wednesday was taken by Bob Warder who returned to top form with a magnificent 63.
Malcolm Speer took the handicap winners medal with this years personal best of 52. A great result Malcolm, keep it up. The SW ground was closed. Regarding the current Covid-19 situation, Many of our shooting colleagues fall into the Government's well-publicised 'High Risk' bracket. Next week, the 'shoot, or, not to shoot', decision has, rather wisely, been taken from us.
The ground's management team have joined many other shooting venues and closed the ground until the present crisis is over. On behalf of the CDA, I'd like thank the HWSG for taking what must have been a very difficult decision. Such prompt and professional leadership is why we are all proud to be associated with this excellent shooting ground. Hopefully, we will be back to normal within a few weeks, until then, take care and keep well.

Wow, I cannot recall anyone, in the long history of the Coffin Dodgers Association, ever beating their previous average score by 21 kills. Dave Nightingale did just that with a remarkable score of 71.
To do so when only one other Dodger managed to break 60, raises the suspicion that David has discovered a new and potent chemical enhancement and is keeping it to himself. His handicap score of 94 has surely set a record that will be virtually impossible to match.
Runner up for both the high gun and handicap title went to our very own immaculately dressed fashion guru, He Li, Li's score was a personal best. His 67 kills beat his previous best by 5.
Outstanding scores from Chris Monk, Trevor G, and Duncan Scott, gave each of them handicap scores into the 80's while the usual suspects for high gun had a miserable morning which emphasised the absolute quality of this weeks best shooting.
South Worcester provided another excellent range of targets, but given that our squad of 5 all exceeded their average scores suggesting that Mr Clements had toned down his targets a little. It's worth mentioning that their long crossers and crane mounted driven targets are a regular source of frustration to experienced shooters even when he takes pity on us compromised mortals.
Top gun and handicap winner was the Butlers runner up, He Li. His 76 at S.W. left him with an average score of over 82% for his day's shooting. Well done Li, an impressive day's shooting.
