As you will no doubt be aware we are now under lockdown 2 and in accordance with the Government guidelines, all sporting activities are to cease until the above end of lockdown. In practice for us, that means the next potential date for a shoot is 6th December.
During this lockdown, your committee will be reviewing the government updates and guidelines so that we can resume shooting as soon as we are legally allowed to along with the conditions that have to be adhered to.
I can appreciate everyone’s frustration with the current situation but in the longer term it is for the benefit of all and a return to normality at a future date.
This also means that the proposed outdoor AGM on the 15th November has been cancelled along with the shoot. The intention will be to hold the outdoor AGM at the next shoot during the tea break.
Kind regards Adrian Thwaites (Chairman)

With a few dry days the land was still solid, so shooting at Ludgershall was on. Seven stands were set up, and we were divided into eight squads for the shoot. A very still day, so no excuses for missed targets. That said, there were some demanding crossers, and a large number of pickups where they landed.

A very good turnout for our Sunday shoot. It was a warm dry September morning shoot with seven operational stands, and one waiting stand to cope with the large turnout. One very tricky stand with a following pair of clays from a tower caused problems with many shooters. Many blanking this stand.

An extra shoot was organised for the 5th Sunday of the month. This was a welcome shoot to offset the shoots we missed earlier in the season. There were some difficult targets in today’s shoot. The two slow incoming clays looked deceptively easy, how come so many missed the right-hand clay. Who set up stand 5 with the two left to right crossing targets. The first of the pair was hittable as it came to a stop in front of you. The second target, landing not far away was apparently impossible. I never saw one broken. Collecting the clays at the end of the day reinforced this observation. The high score of 37 was confirmation of the difficult targets. We only get better by testing ourselves.
