Lovely day for the practice shoot at Doddershall, when the sun shone it became even slightly warm. Slight delay to the start of the shoot today, but we finished relatively on time by shooting different combinations of the traps without having to move them to different locations. Mark C brought a friend (Ethan) along to shoot. Hope to see him again at the club again.
The cancelled Kingswood League shoot is going to be held on the 17th April.

A few intrepid shooters turned up for the Sunday practice shoot. The rain held off, the wind blew producing some interesting variations on the trajectory of the targets. There also seem to be a reticence amongst some members to leave the shelter of the trailer. Yes it felt a tad cool in the wind, though the sun did come out to play.

The Roger Phillips Trophy shoot was held at the Drayton Parslow shooting ground on Sunday 27th December. The shoot was a hundred bird shoot over 12 stands, with a handicap shoot. The day was damp with light rain, but incredibly warm for a December. No wind to affect the flight of the clays.
The handicap was worked out thus. Before we started the shoot, 6 stands were picked randomly, the scores for these stands were then added up. The person with the highest score over the six stands (Helena 43) was then used as the scratch score. So everyone below this score would then receive a handicap.
The handicap was won by Wally.
The final overall scores out of 100 before the handicap was applied are as follows
Mark H. 78
Mark. C 77
Mark. P 76
With the handicap applied to the scores on the second set of six stands the results were as follows:
Mark H. 43
Mark P. 43
Helena C. 43
Mark. C. 42
