09/07/2017 - Shoot Summary

Thanks to all of you who attended, a slightly busier day than usual with a few extra novices, thanks for your patience; it is these visitors who are the future of the club, the warm welcome they receive is the main reason that many of them go on to be ticket holding members.

Stand 1 – Away Bird followed on report by Left-Right Looper
The away bird a fairly straight forward target providing you got on it quickly, the left-right looper again perfectly presented; quite close in provided a fairly easy bird.

Stand 2 – Driven In Bird followed on report by Driven Away Bird off right shoulder.
This stand was originally meant to be a pair driven in but a fault with one of the traps meant that we had to place the manual as an emergency measure. Still both birds were great targets though the away bird caught a few out as it was flying downhill against the hills in the background; this caused many of you to miss over the top.

Stand 3 – Pair of Left- Right Osprey’s
A great pair of birds flying straight across the front of the stand with about 15’ft between them. The secret being taking the back bird early which then gave you just enough time on the second one.

Stand 4 – Away Rabbit followed on report by Springing Teal
The away rabbit was the cause of much merriment, presented edge on this was a tricky target; a nice change on stand 4. The 2nd bird appeared from behind the board slightly right of the stand and climbed high before presenting itself in full profile, this target falling easily to a consistent approach.

Stand 5 – Right-Left Quartering Bird followed on report by a fast climbing Away Bird.
The quartering bird didn’t give you much time before it fell below the horizon, not too difficult but you had to be fast. The away bird appeared from your feet as though startled on a walk-up.

Top gun this time was James Crowther with an impressive 47/50.

A number of you turned in personal bests:

Matthew Donlon 27/50
Ryan Jenkins 33/50
Clive Jackson 33/50

Well done you guys, look forward to seeing you all at the next shoot on the 23rd July.
