Shoot Scores 5th July

Third shoot back after lockdown and this was a lot trickier than the first two especially with the strong wind making for some much tougher targets.

Only 8 shooters managed to reach a combined score of 30 ex 50 and they are:-

Guillaume 20+20 = 40
Colin M 20+19 = 39
Ian 18+20 = 38
James 16+16 = 32
Lee 14+18 = 32
Andy F’s 16+16 = 32
Mitch 16+15 = 31
Andy C 16+14 = 30

Many thanks again to Glen and Colin for the set up as we all really enjoy being back to our sport, and to those who helped with scoring and buttoning especially Mark and Joe.

Sunday 21st June

Our first shoot back was a success and allowed us all to blow the cobwebs out of the barrels! A few changes for this coming shoot (21st). Compaq sporting will continue over the 2 layouts. We will be trimming the squad intervals to every 15 mins and starting at 9.45am. The last squad to shoot will be 11.30am. Please ensure you are on time. This allows us an earlier finish time, as we weren’t packed away until 2pm last shoot. Once the squads are full, we are full, so if you’re planning on shooting don’t hang around, book in. Last entries by Friday evening 8pm. Contact Glen 07900 265913

Glen 20+23 =43
Colin M 20+23 =43

Important notice : COVID-19

Having thought long and hard about this we have reluctantly taken the decision to close the gun club for the time being.
We did discuss carrying on shooting without opening the shed or taking physical money or using score cards and using gloves for buttoning etc and these looked attractive options if it gave people some opportunity to enjoy some sporting activity and fresh air.
However, on the other hand we felt it would not send the right message to others in the village who were not aware of the measures we had taken and could easily think we were being cavalier in the face of the constraints we are all being asked to face.
On balance therefore we have erred on the side of caution. We will keep reviewing the position with the aim of re-opening as soon as we can.
We hope you, your families and friends all stay well at this time and look forward to seeing you all again before too long.
With all best wishes
Ian, Glen, Mark and Colin
