So Big Gay Al swings by the shop yesterday asking “Where we shooting tomorrow?” Seems he is fighting fit again. After a short discussion and having not shot there in a while it was decided to go to Mendip Shooting Ground, stopping for one of the west country’s finest breakfasts at the Lillypool cafe
Little known to us there was a 100 bird competition on today in memory of Arthur Hill with a cup for high gun.
It all started pretty well with the first few stands me and Al neck and neck but as appears to be becoming the norm now mid round I came down with a massive attack of shitshooteritus allowing Big Gay Al to open up a mildly impressive lead, one that I never quite managed to reel in on the home stretch
Today was the first round of the 2016 Interclub shoots between North Newton, Cannington, Shipham and Westonzoyland, held at North Newton
With Big Gay Al out of action and Baz not wanting to shoot with a no hoper like me I had to find some new mates to shoot with, good thing for me there was a group of unsuspecting Shipham shooters hanging around the parking lot for me to latch onto like a blood sucking leech.
There where six stands laid on, eight birds on five stands and a ten bird walk along for a total of fifty birds. The clays were a good mixture of easy, teasing and what the fuck. The turn out was good with a little over a hundred shooters attending.
With Big Gay Al still recovering from his nasty masturbating injury, I once again had no mates, luckily Alf and Tony were going to Meadowcroft, Marksbury near bath for a swift hundred birds only, so I tagged along.
The first few stands started well for me and Alf hitting eighty/ninety percent while Tony was struggling to find any form, by two thirds distance me and Alf were neck and neck kicking some serious Chinese butt.
However on the home straight me and Alf hit into a spell of shit shooting while Tony all of a sudden turned into a shooting god and couldn’t miss.
All in all it was some good friends having a good time, a little banter and some good fun shooting
So how did it end?
Tony claimed victory for China on the last stand.
And the simo losers in joint second place me and Alf
A couple of weks ago Big Gay Al suffered a nasty masturbating accident.
During a final bout of feverous climatic stroking he managed to pull some rib muscles, not only was it a massive disappointment being denied as he was about to blow his bag but it also put him out of shooting action.
All the shit shooters in the world wish Al a speedy recovery
Another Sunday morning and once again the clay ground is calling, today it was the Cotswold Gun Club that was honoured with our presence.
We stopped for breakfast at the Toby Carvery as is usual for a trip to the Cotswolds and this time didn’t end up on the M4 heading to London, which was actually quite lucky as the M32 was closed.
I started off pretty good with a couple of eights, Al started of pretty mediocre with some sixes but then I turned to shit while Al upped his game on the home five stands it seemed Al couldn’t miss and I couldn’t break one if I stepped on it, I did manage a straight on the last stand but too little too late.
Today’s winner Big Gay Al
Today’s steaming pile
Couldn't hit a barn door
