16/09/2018 - Shoot Summary

Thanks to all who turned out today to enjoy a rather blustery shoot, most of you didn’t get wet but those shooting later in the day were drenched!.

Stand 1

Pair of away birds (they were supposed to be pairs), you needed to be quick on the 1st bird to stand a chance on the 2nd. Fairly straight forward for a good number of you but a few found them testing.

Stand 2

Left-Right Quartering Rabbit followed OR by Left-Right Looper. Rabbit was fast but very hittable (is that even a word?) Looper fairly straight forward, close in and nicely overhead.

Stand 3

Left-Right Quartering Away Bird followed OR by Left-Right Crosser. Probably the hardest stand today, the first bird needing much more lead than was apparent, those that sussed this early did well while others were left scratching their heads. The 2nd bird whilst quite fast was close in so fell fairly easily.

Stand 4

Away Bird from your feet followed OR by Right-Left crosser. The Away Bird fairly easy and was hit by most consistently but he crosser caught a lot of you out today, the wind made it a fast bird which strangely stalled prematurely.

Stand 5

Away Bird off the right shoulder followed OR by Away Bird off the left shoulder.  One of the easier stands I thought which is ironic when you consider this is the stand where Tom dropped his only miss!

3 personal bests today:

Pete Cooper 42/50

Tom Oliver - 49/50 (unlucky buddy but still a fantastic round)

Damien Patten - 26/50

Well done you guys.
