The scores at H&W this week indicated that someone had not lost their sense of humour when they had put the stands on. Either that or they were practising for an early 'Extreme' day.
Only one person managed to just marginally beat their handicap. Feedback I have had suggested that eyesight and reflex testing were heavily reccommended for several stands. When our finest shots are struggling then a little moderation should be in order. James took a lot of flack over some extreme targets he put on, but with him now retired, the remaining course organisors could show a little more sympathy for us old buggers, (hint, check out what 'CDA' implies Shane).
Top score was put in by Bob Warder who's 54 took the Scratch Gold this week. Silver went to Steve Honnor with 50 targets broken. Scratch Bronze went to Dave Nightingale who was just one target behind with 49. Dave's 49 took the Handicap Gold medal and was the only score to beat their average. Runner up, just two targets behind was Steve Honner with Bob Warder taking Handicap Bronze position.
Holiday commitments, (myself) and a dental appointment, (John G) thinned the ranks at South Worcester but some good scores despite that. Geoff Pomroy came out on top with 79 broken clays. Silver spot went to Steve Honner with a very creditable 78. Julian Waszczak took the Bronze position with his second 73 of the year. Handicap positions mirrored the scratch scores with Geoff taking Gold over Steve and Julian.
