Interclub 2016 – Cannington

Hi guys

This evening saw the third round of the Interclub Shooting series between North Newton, Cannington, Shipham and Westonzoyland held at Cannington.

The weather was once again very humid making for some sweaty shooting, looked like it was about to rain  but we had finished shooting and no rain had appeared

Cannington put on a layout of five stands and for a change not the usual Cannington shit, it was a good mixture of birds for all abilities.

Interclub 2016 – Shipham

Hi Guys

Today was the second round of the Interclub Shooting series between North Newton, Cannington, Shipham and Westonzoyland held at Shipham

As usual me and Big Gay Al stopped at the Liillypool cafe for breakfast on the way.

The weather was very humid and a little misty making for some sweaty shooting, there was a threat of rain in the air but we had finished before it rained.

Shipham put on a layout of five stands of eight clays and one stand of ten, a good mixture of birds were thrown from their ultra reliable traps.

Interclub 2016 – North Newton

Hi Guys

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.
