A super day for shooting and fine set of results to report.
The average score this week was the best over the last two (covid stunted) years. I don’t think we've ever had a scratch Gold tie of 67 before but Bob Jordan and Rhiddian Billingham did it this week. Bob took the top spot and relegated Rhiddian to the Silver spot by just 0.22 of a point when handicap was added.
Star of the day for me was Dave Gee who's Bronze winning 64 set a handiap record of almost 23 kills above his average. He took the handicap Gold by a clear 10 point margin from Bob Jordan with Rhiddian taking the handicap Bronze. A great performance from all the score leaders this week.
South Worcester was a totally different kettle of fish this week. A tricky course resulted in some disappointing scores all round. Paul Stokes took the scratch Gold with 82 ex 100 broken targets. Jonathan Skelding took the Silver spot with a fine 75 kills. Scratch Bronze went to Tony Gray's 67 broken clays. Handicap Gold went to Jonathan Skelding who's score of 75 was the only above average score returned.
Ian edwards took the handicap Silver spot on his return to the ground, just beating Paul Stokes who took the handicap Bronze. Ian made the most of his first day's shooting this year by insisting he shot every stand at both grounds as a simultaneous pair. Well done Ian. Glad to see you and your musket back on the stands.
