I hope that everyone had a good day in Wales, we certainly had a great and successful practice at Doddershall.
Many thanks to Brian, Dawn, Todd and Celia for setting up – it was all done when I arrived and I wasn’t late!!!! Also many thanks to Dawn and Brian for supplying the refreshments.
We welcomed Kim, Nick, Phil Goff and Jack Fisher as guests and hope that they enjoyed the morning.
Scores as follows:-
There was a large contingent travelling to Wales with nearly 20 from Kingswood participating. We were met with a cloudy sky. This soon broke and we had a lovely warm shoot in the quarry. Tony H mentioned that in the 25 years plus he had been travelling to the Welsh shoot, it had only rained once, and that was a light drizzle.
The shoot staged by St Brides was quite demanding, with many who score 75% at our normal shoots struggling to score 50%. The Welsh only managed to do a little better. From the 10 highest scores from each team, we were only 20 points behind on the first leg. All to play for in the return match.
Missing from the shoot this year was the high crossing pair from the top of the quarry. Something of a relief!!
As was usual we ate lunch at the Fox and Hounds in St Brides Major.
