End of Season Shoot – 19th October 2009
Our customary final club meeting of the season was held on 19th October. A host of competitions at distances between 300 and 1000 yards awaited a spirited turnout of eleven members, who enjoyed sunshine and imperceptibly light, often dangerous winds.
With both handicapped events and straight gun score competitions to shoot, members of all abilities were able to enjoy the day, battling with their nerves their fellow competitors and the winds which seemed to come from nowhere.
As mentioned in earlier reports it was Colin Skellett that was on everyone’s mind following his excellent season on the ranges. He did not disappoint here either but did not have it all his own way as the results listed below will show.
Highlights were certainly Colin’s performance, in scooping up five of the ten trophies but also Richard Malet’s win in the Donegall Trophy for the third time in three years was a notable achievement. Mike Carlin had a great shoot at 600 yards to post his first Club trophy win, just edging Colin into second place.
Prizes were presented after shooting and details of all competitions were as follows:
