Our Quainton shoot had a large turn out. All the shooting was from on top of the old railway embankment. HS2 are back, and access to the field we sometimes shoot from is now closed. This might have been the last time we shoot at Quainton. HS2 are taking over more land then was originally envisaged.
The weather was kind, and became quite balmy by the end of the shoot, with many members stripping of excess clothing to remain cool. Today’s shoot was a mixture. A couple of card filler stands to build confidence and some very demanding stands to destroy what remaining confidence you still had. How can a slow incomer be so difficult to shoot? The going away teal had to be shot quickly, otherwise, it was at the boundary of the field. Still, there were still some high scores above 40.
This shoot was also the first one since shooting resumed after lock-down where we were requested to help clear up. Not an onerous task for us, a quick pickup of the clays which we deposited next to the traps, and then the team did the rest.
