Another great turnout today at the gun club. Thanks to all that came.  The bad weather held off long enough for most to finish without getting wet.

The weather created some challenging conditions at the club today.  Due to the high wind, Stand 2 was not quite what was set up, so it turned out to be very difficult. The Teal on Stand 1 wasn’t easy either. Other than that, the layout shot well. The Highgun was an excellent 81 ( given the conditions )  from Darren Wray who shot very well indeed, followed by  Iain Hall 79, and Steve Donson and Lee Pitman both with 78.  In the Handicap Competition, …
