A warm windy February shoot. Rather wet underfoot.

Lovely bright sunny and frosty morning brought out over 40 members and guests for the shoot. The cold weather did reduce the power of the radio transmitters, causing some technical issues. Stand four was demanding. The number of pickups on that stand was a testament to birds that got away.

The practice shoot was held at Ludgershall. Wet ground conditions meant parking on the road. No rain and a gentle breeze. Some of the clay targets were quite demanding.

After the weeks of rain, it was decided not to allow unnecessary vehicles on the shooting field. Instead, we would meet at Ludgershall village hall and be transported to the field by a vintage tractor (1980 Fiat) and trailer. Two trips were required. We can thank Jim for arranging this mode of transport. It was a fun start and end to the shoot.
Awaiting us at the shooting ground we had five stands of ten birds each. These were beautifully set up by Brian and his team, along with festive Christmas names. This was also the first outing of new safety cages, strong and light. As you can see from the picture, the field was truly waterlogged. Despite the cloud, there was no rain to spoil the fun. The breeze did add a chill to the air, 8C feels like 5C.
After the tea and coffee break, (please remember to bring your mug), we had a flurry shoot. Teams of three were randomly picked and shot the flurry. Deceptively slow at first, putting you at ease, until two fast, demanding flurries at the end. The final two stands of the fifty bird shoot then completed the shoot. In all 36 members and friends shot.
Village Hall and Lunch
Back at the Ludgershall village hall lunch had been prepared. An excellent buffet meal of meats, salads, baked potatoes and desserts. A big thank you to Celia, Shirley and Ann. After the meal, the prize giving.

Finally, thank you to DB (Dawn and Brian) Guns and their crew for setting up an excellent shoot. A special thanks to Celia, Shirley and Ann for organising the food.
The weather for the shoot was lovely, slight breeze no rain and the sun shone. We did hear from Brians crew that it was still raining when they set up. Luckily at Quainton, we can walk on a firm solid surface. The picture I have chosen shows the substantial amount of standing water on the field.
