Today the annual charity shoot at Chideock near Lyme Regis in aid of the air ambulance was held and me, Big Gay Al and Joss (Japanese Toilet Boy) took the hour and something drive to have some claybusting fun all in a good cause.
Upon arrive my old Town Car promptly got stuck in some soft mud in the gateway, we weren’t the first and were not the last to fall victim to that soft spot, after being unceremoniously pushed to one side it was time to check in.
It was a great 50 bird layout with a good mix of easy and not so easy clays including one little teaser that looked so easy but no one was hitting.
So what were the scores
After two rounds I came out on top with 82/100
Japanese Toilet Boy came in second with 69/100
That only leaves Big Gay Al today’s steaming pile coming in last for the second week running with a miserable 67/100
Yet another Sunday, yet another fine day for claybusting and yet another trip to the Cotswold Gun Club for Big Gay Al and Myself, once again stopping for breakfast at The Toby Carvery, Bradley Stoke and this time we actually didn’t end up heading for London when I rejoined the M5
Things started great for the pair of us with a couple of 8’s and 9’s but then the rot set if for poor old Al, he went so far off the boil he froze solid, he couldn’t hit the proverbial barn door, I don’t even think he could have broken one lying on the ground.
Dereck fresh from defeat last week shows Al he let him win
Big Gay Al going for the shit shooter world crown 2017
It was a glorious April’s day here is The West Country, it was 50 degrees, sun was shining, a few fluffy white clouds against a blue s with a blustery 20mph south-easterly breeze, just the weather for busting clays.
So I picked up Big Gay Al about 8:09 and we headed to The Hilltops Cafe, Pawlett for breakfast before heading down to Ashley, Tiverton for some shooting fun
There were some great clays laid on and the blustery wind added to the excitement. I made my usual slow start with a six on the first stand an incommer stalling in the wind before dropping left or right followed by a left – right crosser, not that difficult really. Al made an equally slow start with a five. Onto stand to and Al improved with a nine and I didn’t get any better, stand three we broke even, Al then hit into a winning streak with a row of nines and tens, leaving me crying in the dirt.
I pulled a few back on the home straight and only needed eighteen out of ten to win, giving it a good go only dropping one clay was not quite good enough with Al showing how it was done today finishing on 108/140
Three cheers for Big Gay Al, Hip, Hip!
