    Today , under glorious sunny skies we shot the 7th round of the Claret Cup ..... or tried to shoot !!

    The wind was rather unpredictable , gusting strongly , and confounding every one .

    But as always some chaps just seem to have the knack of slipping the trigger at the precise moment the wind drops .... and they turn around with a happy smile ...

    Others of us shoot & listen intently ..... to the sound of silence ..... Oh no !!! Another darn zero !!!

    Pete Foote & Tom Morgans were a bit grumpy about a target at 42 yards instead of 40 yards .... but they top scored for the day despite the monor mishap.
    A target was discovered to be faulty before the comp & an incorrect size was put in by mistake .
    However , a lot of chaps flattened it , and all ended happily .

    Thanks to Johnny & Ian who prepared every thing on saturday , and all the competitors who helped set up & put away afterwards .

    Very encouraging to welcome new shooters . A big day , with big winds .....

    Nice to be shooting in short sleeves for a change :) Thanks to Mark and Zac for the company.

    The usual windage question of "Do I go inside or outside edge of kill?" was replaced by "How far off the plate do I go?" :eek:

    Well done to the top shots.
