Anyone shooting at midday had the pleasure of a brief hail shower,  but before and after that we were blessed with some nice winter sunshine ( like summer sunshine, but lower air temperatures ! )    The course setters put out some challenges for the sporting course today, with a simo pair up by the …

A cracking day for the first of the Winter 17/18 series, with light winds, and some great targets to play with.  The sun was a challenge for those shooting stand 1 & 4 later in the day. The simo pair from the top made it worth attending, and the batteau in the copse  was a …
