    Blessed with another Sunny day, 64 bird sporting or 50 bird sport depending on your preference.

    I managed to get a shoot this week, thanks to Steve Napier who was too knackered to shoot but kept the traps in order all the same. Unfortunately the rabbit on stand 5 finally gave up? But not before it entertained and frustrates shooters.

    Bob Ellis gets a mention this week as he shoot really well, I can confirm. I missed the opportunity to get his picture for this blog, so I asked for a picture and this is what he sent. (Further down the page).

    I was not able to get this week’s top gun’s full name, only know its Duncan. Well done. You can see the scores below. No pool shoot this week due to the weather making the ground by the cabin too wet and compounded by the fact we had to drive over it to set up, because our neighbours had spread out over the hard standing to do their stock take. They kindly worked away from the FCPSC cabin on Sunday.

  2. THANK YOU FOR THE FEEDBACK.

    This Sundays Shoot was slightly different, a 64 Bird sporting for only £2 more than the 50 bird sporting.

    The setup prompted various comments, such as ‘challenging and the set-up suited all levels’. 

    Others said that stand 3, ‘was ridiculously too fast’.

    A very experienced shooter (Ron Forster) pointed out shooting clays ‘should not be an eye test’. Which is sensible and to the point. 

    ‘Great setup, especially stand 9 were the clay followed the hill into the valley’ was another unprompted comment. (Thanks Christian)

    I really appreciate any feedback (constructive preferably). It’s important to the club to be a fun place to shoot clays, we are still learning and aiming (small pun intended) to always improve. 

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback so far, please continue helping the club with suggestions and feedback.

    The next shoot will be similar in that we are trying to move away from the cutting.

    The pool shoot was a surprise, particularly for Dave Ellis who won it. Again, Dave claimed he hadn’t shot very well on the sporting – now look how happy is he in the picture below. The scores for this shoot are further down the page. 

    The next shoot is on Sunday 3rd June, see you all then with hopefully more sunshine!
