Fred Dymock Shoot 18th December 2022
Maybe we had missed the intense cold from the previous days, it was still a chilly shooting day, the ground hard from the previous frosts, and a strengthening wind. It was scheduled to rain, but thankfully that held off.
The shoot was in memory of Fred Dymock. He always held a boxing day shoot on a piece of land on the crossroads this side of Quainton railway heritage site. The land became a car park for the heritage site, and now it is owned by HS2. We would shoot and stand next to a blaze in a large oil drum keeping warm, while we consumed whisky. Fred would construct some special clays which would distribute confetti when they were hit.
Today we shot 50 clays for the Fred Dymock Trophy. This is a handicapped shoot, based on previous scores through the year. The shoot was over 6 stands. During the tea break we also held a flurry with teams of three people.
After the shoot we went back to Ludgershall village hall for lunch and the prize giving. A lovely lunch was supplied by the club and prepared for us by the ladies.
