More like a cool autumn day than a bleak mid-winter one. Rain had stopped when the shooting started and apart from a fresh breeze, a perfect day for it. Essentially the same course as last week so some more good scores were put in.
Top scratch score was put in by Dave Salter. His 66 was a super demonstration that he is now back to his best. It was 3 better than Bpb Warder's Sliver medal spot. Geof Pomroy's 62 took the bronze with just a single target behind Bob. The handicap Gold went to Dave Gee who's 47 hits were 14 better than his average. A stunning score David.
Another excellent score was put in by Robert Wilson who's 49 broken clays beat his own average by a superb 10 targets. Well done Robert. Dave Salter's scratch-winning score also gave him the Handicap Bronze.
South Worcester was packed and the waiting throngs on every stand made 100 targets impossible during the afternoon.
John Griffiths rather sensibly decided to give it a miss which left only Len and Martin Middleton to get in as many stands as possible. We managed 70 targets on 7 stands before deferring to the still extended queues on the unshot stands.
Our scores appear as a percentage of clays broken. Martin managed 67 which was 1 below his average and Len managed 84. which was 4 better than his average. I've just seen the excellent recording of our Xmas shoot presentation. It was marred only by the fact that the presenter conducted the entire occasion with his flys compromised. (Don't get too excited). Keith has done another good job.
