Another tight course with only one Dodger beating his average score. Despite that, there were 41 extra 'kills' this week by the same number of shooters. That was aided, I'm sure, by 5 simple pairs of going away targets on the first stand we came to.
Best score this week came from Bob Warder who's 56 broken Targets earned him the Scratch Gold medal. Geoff Pomroy's 55 took the Silver spot on handicap adjustment from Dave Salter's similar score. Dave took the Bronze position. Handicap winner was Roy KItchen who was the only shooter to beat his average. Well done Roy. Handicap Silver went to Geoff Pomroy with the Handicap bronze position being won by Simon Honeybourne.
Great turnout at South Worcester and some great and memorable shooting. Star for me was Dave Salter who, using a borrowed .410.pump action, broke 79 ex 100 clays. This inclued 'on report' stands being shot as simultaneous pairs which pump ation guns are not designed for. Brilliant shooting Dave. Having watched Jonathan Thornton's steady improvement over the last three years, Top gun was always a probability. His 93 was just one behind a record CDA score that is now 12 years old and easily took the scratch Gold spot. Gary Griffiths joined us and scored a super 87 to take the silver position .Len took the Bronze spot with 83 broken clays.The lack of historical 'form' from the top shooters kept the scratch winners off the scoreboard. Handicap Gold went to Jonathan Skelding scoring 10 above his average. John Griffiths took the Silver with Geoff Pomeroy taking the Bronze spot. Some great scores at SW.
