09/12/2018 - Shoot Summary

Thanks to all who turned out this week the weather not too bad (well dry at least) blustery and cold though. It was nice to welcome a couple of guests from the North East, Thomas Oliver's parents joined us for the day good to see Andrew and Lesley. Hope to see you again soon.

Stand 1

Pair of High Quartering Away Birds, what a great pair of birds beautifully presented quartering off to the right in front of the stand. The wind really getting under one of them making them interesting and challenging.

Stand 2 

Pair of Fast Incoming Birds. These whilst not a difficult presentation were made tricky by the speed they came at you, you needed to be early on the first bird to have time for the second which was shot close in and low.

Stand 3

Left-Right Quartering Bird (banking away left) followed OR by Left-Right Quartering Bird (banking away right), the hardest stand of the day in my opinion. Difficult to read as from the stand they looked similar but they weren't the same at all; far from it!

Stand 4

Nasty Quartering Away Rabbit (courtesy of our guest setter Andrew Oliver) followed OR by Springing Teal (ish) from behind the board. The rabbit was horrendous I'm sure it was a stitch up from our visitors from North of the border; more like a grouse coming in to land to be fair. The Teal a much more pleasing offering whilst high provided a nice clear sight picture.

Stand 5

Driven (out) bird from in front of the stand followed OR by High Right-Left Looper from the top of the gulley. The driven bird shouldn't have presented many of you too many problems but it was faster than usual so concentration was key. The looper was sublime; what a target and about as high a bird as we can get at Running Hill Clay Pigeon Club.

Looking at the cards it would seem that the shoot was harder than usual and for some perhaps it was, nobody turning any personal bests in this week. Still some good scores though with Andy Hobson's 44/50 being the top score of the day.
