A quiet shoot with most of the bods off shooting the Southern Hunters at Lea Valley. Happily their places were taken up by a fair few new shooters. What a welcome we gave them.
Shot to 'Masters' rules', with a course that can only be described as robustly challenging. Only a couple of gimme's and an awful lot of 15mm targets. Lots of elevated ones around the 25 yard mark and one waaay up in the trees, waaay over there.
Honestly it wouldn't have been so bad but for the wind, come the second half some people were having to give two and a half dots just to stay on the plate. Even Laity had to give it wind!
The scores reflect the conditions, no one scored more than fifty, and some people scored much lower than that. I hope none of the new shooters are discouraged; it's normally much much easier. Honest.
I managed a personal best of five doughnuts in a row!
