Another day where the forecasters got it wrong, it was due to rain all day, and get worse as the day progressed, It turns out that our little Isle of Wight micro climate helped us once again, and although there was rain, it didn’t trouble too many, for too long – certainly one of the comments over heard was “we’ve shot in a lot worse conditions”. The layout was a ‘tweak’ of last Saturday’s layout, but was none the worse for it – some great targets that rewarded consistency and accuracy. The pit at the far end of the ground claimed some score cards, along with the two crossers, on the back of the skeet ground. There was evidence of some early shooting at the rabbit, which was a risky shot compared to leaving it a little longer. The woods are often at their best in the winter, without the foliage the bare trees allow for the driven target and high crossing targets, which are all too easy to drop one here or there. So a tricky day – reflected in the scores. Normally a 90s man, Ben Morris was high gun with 88, followed by 83 from Ollie Hughes and Lee Pitman. In the Handicap competition which has seen in the last few weeks some tight joint podium finishers, saw a little daylight between winner Charles Darbyshire 77+29;106, Ollie Hughes 83+21;104 and Daryl Langdon 75+27;102. Of 23 guns, 14 made the handicap ‘par’ of 95.
