10th March, Spring 1 Sporting & ABT County Championship

By admin | March 10, 2019 | 0 Comments

Gusty 50kt winds, sunshine, the odd drop of rain,  we had it all today – well I guess we can’t have clear sky every shoot.  It was what the weather forecasters would describe as mostly sunny, so we can’t moan too much. A tricky day on the ABT layout for the County Championship, which was won by Kath Bright, with 2nd place 79, but the leading Island resident, so left today as County Champion.  1st …

Sporting Winter Series 5 lived up to its name, after a forecast of condition easing through out the morning, the conditions can only be described as ‘changeable’  with sleet, rain, sun, wind.  Hope everyone loved the simo pair in the middle of the ground,  a challenging target for sure. Ben Morris found his way around the course quite happily to score 91, followed by  Leon Clifton 90, and a cracking sore from Daryl Langdon 3rd place with 87 …

A cracking day at the club today, though we don’t keep records long enough, it was one of the biggest turnouts that anyone can remember. Thanks to all for coming. Everyone that did shoot today was greeted with a fantastic layout, and decent shooting conditions. There were two (or more) tricky stands, with a going away ‘teal-ish’ pair of targets that was quite tough, along with the pit at the far end of the ground …

We were lucky that as forecast, the weather front passed through overnight to leave  much less wind & the rain held off, to reveal an exciting & challenging layout, with quite a few simo pairs.  A big climber in the Skeet ground caught a few out, but it was still enjoyable.    Spare a thought however for those that set up the course yesterday, in 40mph winds, and continual rain, with temperatures around 3degrees all day, …
