18/02/2019 - Shoot Summary and AGM Notification



The AGM will be held 28th February 2019 at The Cross Keys from 19.30. As usual there will food laid on for those in attendance following the meeting. If you want anything specifically answering feel free to email me and I’ll do my very best to ensure we can answer it on the night. It would be great to see as many of you as possible.


A very busy shoot this morning, thanks for all your support. I was expecting a really cold and wet day but not so; it was surprisingly mild, with only a few spots of rain towards the end of the shoot.


Stand 1 – Forced Pair of Away Birds

These birds both under power which meant that fast acquisition was key. Apologies for the high number of broken birds due to a faulty trap, hopefully we can get this swapped out for a replacement we fixed on Sunday.


Stand 2 – Right-Left Quartering Rabbit followed OR by Away Bird off the right shoulder.

The rabbit whilst quite fast presented itself nicely 20yds out in front of the stand, straight forward unless you got a batch of jumpers. The away bird was quicker than a quick thing, if you took it quickly you could shoot straight at it.


Stand 3 – Incoming Looper followed OR by Left-Right Climbing Crossing Bird

A fantastic pair of birds, the looper was a challenging target; presented edge on into the wind. This target was deliberately set to be affected by the wind and mess with your minds. The crossing target was best left late and shot as an away bird over to your left.


Stand 4 – Right-Left Climbing Crossing Bird followed OR by High “Teal”.

Both targets of equal difficulty. Helped on their way by a fairly stiff tail wind they were fast but well-presented making them very hittable.


Stand 5 – Startled Away Bird from in front of the stand followed OR by an Away Bird off the right shoulder.

Both birds an easy finish to the round, I think this stand saved a number of cards.


One personal best this week.

Hazel Cornick 21/50
