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.

Happy shooting

Al back on form at Shipham

Hi Guys

Apologies for the lateness of this post but a couple of weeks ago I had a catastrophic computer failure so am slowly grinding back in action on a new iMac, after using a Windows computer since time began it’s taking a little getting used to.

Anyway on with the show.

We decided to slum it today with a trip to Shipham up on the Mendip hills in Somerset, stopping as usual for a fine breakfast at the Lillypool cafe.

Al was shooting like a demon with a straight on the first three stands, me on the other hand was nursing a bad back and not doing so well. Al almost took high gun on the day but was pipped by one clay by Trevor.

I hit those rabbits, honest guv!

Hi Guys

It appears Andy and Terry are once again a duo today, I guess Baz is still recovering from several  weeks of jerking off with his carney buddies.

Anyway the duo arrived at Meadowcroft, Marksbury, Somerset for a 100 birds registered a little later than usual after stopping for breakfast at the Lillypool cafe Shipham. On the way in they met Gary West Trucks who was just leaving after shooting a round of 58, he said it was all a bit gloopy and some cars were sliding down the slope into parked cars down in the lower car park which meant the duo had a bit of a stroll down from the upper car park.

Andy started the round with a straight and was all set for a monster score, a few stands later Terry was at the oche a pair of low crossers, a couple of pairs in and the trapper didn’t see a hit and asked our man if he had hit them, honest Terry said “No” and with his place in heaven assured carried on with a clear conscience.

Nothing much happened until the last stand a fast rabbit followed by a looper, apparently Andy missed two rabbits by a country mile but the trapper announced he had straighted the stand, “Well” said Andy “If she gave to me I will take them”. I don’t know how he can sleep easy at night

Which from the scores (See note below) I have makes this weeks winner …….

After an extraordinary meeting of the commitee it has been decided to a null Andy’s score for being a cheating A-rab which makes him this weeks pus oozing boil on a gorilla’s arse.

Happy shooting

Interclub Shoot Round 2 – Shipham

Hi Guys

Earlier on this morning was the second round of the interclub shoots between Westonzoyland, Cannington, Shipham and North Newton shooting grounds held at Shipham, me and Big Gay Al were the sole representatives from the Shit Shooters crew and after a great breakfast at the Lillypool Cafe we headed off for 50 birds of interclub rivalry.

I forgot the camera this morning so only have a few stock pictures from a while back during the winter, I was also missing my trusty Beretta which is still with the smith having the electors replaced and shot real shit.

Hi GUys

Big Gay Al and myself went to Shipham this morning for a friendly 100 birds stopping for a fine breakfast at the Lillypool Cafe on the way. Seems I am still  mourning the ejector failure on my trusty old Beretta 682 because using a Browning Gold Hunter just isn’t doing the business, I might aswell not turned up this morning as Al gave me a severe beating.

Today’s ruptured haemorrhoid is Dereck
