Simo losers at Meadowcroft

Hi Guys

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.

Andy’s piles taste Terry’s size 10

Hi Guys

Our Star trio Baz, Andy “No more than five” and Terry “Bionic finger” were also at Meadowcroft this morning but we ( Big Gay, Me and Toilet Boy) are not allowed to shoot with them.

No guesses for who came out on top.

If the cream always floats to the top, the shit always sinks to the bottom and no amount of hemorrhoid cream is going to sooth the ass kicking Terry dished out today.

An honorable mention to Dr John for trying to bribe the officials

Big Gay kicking ass

Hi Guys

In an unusual departure from our usual practice of just taking in the cheaper numpty shoots Al, Jos and myself persuaded by Alf decided to have ago at a CPSA registered shoot, so off we all went to Meadowcroft, Marksbury near Bath in Somerset.

Meadowcroft is a great shooting ground set in a valley with a mixture of easy, teasing, testing and what the fuck birds it makes for a good mornings claybusting.

Al has finally found some form after spending a few weeks floundering in the shit pile and came out on top

Next in line was myself, I couldn’t hit the side of a bus this morning even managed a quacking

All I could do was blow smoke sideways, no wonder I couldn't hist shit

Baz has the shits

Hi Guys

The my shit don’t stink trio were back down to a duo this weekend as Baz cried off on an early start for a 100 birds registered at Meadowcroft Shoot,  Marksbury with a bad case of the shits.

That just left Andy and Terry representing.

No prizes for guessing Andy came in first on 78/100

Coming in with a strong 65/100 Terry will be a force to be reckoned with in about 75 years

STOP PRESS

Too up their own asses to invite me

Hi Guys

After breaking one-off in me yesterday you would have thought the My shit don’t stink trio would have least given me the chance for a re-match today and invited me to Meadowcroft, Marksbury, Somerset.

You thought wrong, they didn’t, they covertly crept out of town about 8:30 with not so much as a courtesy text, even Dr John got an invite, it wouldn’t have hurt, it wouldn’t have even broke the “We don’t shoot in a group of more than five” rule, well fuck ’em, their dog and their wheelbarrow.

Enough of this bitterness I am sure it is all being toted up by the big man and on with the scores

Baz = 76/100 (must have been an easy shoot)

Andy = 71/100

Terry = 58/100

And this morning’s pan splatter Dr John with 53/100

New shooting ground at Meadowcroft

Hi Guys

All our mates were doing other things today so Baz and myself tried out a new shooting ground (scores to follow).

Billed as “The shooting ground you have all been waiting for” Meadowcroft Shoot near Marksbury, Somerset was quite a surprise. Nestled in a little valley several hundred yards literally off the beaten track a lot of work has gone into making two car parks, paths through the shooting ground and installing some comforting facilities. There was a superb  variety of birds, from testing long distance teal and loopers to easy to miss close rabbits and crossers.

One slight annoyance was they were taking CPSA registration numbers as if it was a registered shoot and charging the same for birds only,  £36 a round
