Hi all, it's nearly the time of year for our traditional Christmas shoot. I'm suggesting we stay with the wednesday before Christmas ie. the 21st of December for our festivities. Ian thinks that will be fine and will ensure a table is provided for us to spread out our collective goodies.
Medals are ordered and another fine celebration of our hardy band looks to be assured. Can those who bring along food for the occasion be aware that we always provide mountains so please moderate portion sizes accordingly. Bob Jordan can usually advise if you need anyone to ask.
Regarding last week's shoot. Gary Griffiths put in another 65 ex 75 to take the Scratch Gold medal. Runner up was Bob Warder with a fine 62. Three scores of 61 from Len S, Julian W and Geoff Pomroy resulted into Geoff taking third spot after handicap adjustment. Gary's 65 also earned him the Handicap Gold again. Rhiddiian Billingham took the Silver spot and Nigel Jordan took the bronze position with a fine 5.6 broken targets better than his average score. Good shooting all round. At
South Worcester, Len won the day with a fine 81, beating Geoff Pomroy into Silver spot by 5 targets. Bronze was taken by Jonathan Skelding who had made roll call armed with an antique but superb little .410 pump action gun that easily proved that no target on the site was safe from it's phenominal breaking ability. A most impressive demonstration of the power and accuracy of the little 410 in Jonathan's capable hands.
Len's scratch win also won him the Handicop Gold with Geoff and Jonathan taking the Silver and Bronze Handicap slots to match their scratch positions.
Because I shoot another ground in the afternoon, I'm not able to wait and collect the mornings scores at Butlers. Can I ask that a member of each squad check your scores and message them to me on 07836 367889 as soon as you can after the shoot. This system works very well most days but I do sometimes miss out on the odd scorecard with the result that my careful and considered commentary (and our 16 year old score records) are inaccurate.
