3rd UT Express Winter Series Shoot

A chilly day with some cloud and a moderate south westerly wind made for some testing targets, greeted the fantastic turn out of 7 squads. We had some great shooting with the High Gun Allan Haynes shooting a 50 straight personal best, congratulations Allan. Its always nice when shooters have a personal best at our ground they will remember where they did it and good to have these nice memories of our club, nothing ever takes away the good feeling of getting a PB.  Nigel Caves one of our regular shooters was hot on Allens heels with a 95 and one of our talented juniors Michael Bovingdon with a 94. Junior shooter Jonti Spelman also got a PB with a 25 straight, congratulations and very well done to you all.

West Midlands Area & Derbyshire Helice Championship

Today we held the West Midlands & Derbyshire Helice Area Championship that had been cancelled last month due to the weather forecasters putting out a dreadful forecast of hurricane winds, which proved to be absolutely wrong, however you have to do what you think is right at the time. As we have a busy schedule through the year we had to slot this shoot in on a Saturday.

We had 23 shooters and an enjoyable day, although the wind direction played havoc with some of the birds, Brain Ward being the most unfortunate shooter with quite a few over the fence!

We thank you and appreciate your continued support of our club
