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.
