Sunday, 22nd October South West Shoot High View Shooting Ground
On Sunday the 22nd October Cornwall hosted the South West Shoot at High View Shooting Ground.
In all 39 shooters attended from the Provinces of Cornwall, Devon, Bristol and Wiltshire.
The day was fairly good to us with the rain holding off most of the time. The targets were very well thought out giving
all competitors no matter what standard a fair chance to hit some clays.
The day culminated with food, a raffle and presentations.
Top Gun was Matt Barnett with 89.
Top Ladies Gun was Nic Harber with 45.
Cornwall were the winners with 244, Bristol with 240, Devon with 196 and Wiltshire with 179.
Plenty of banter and camaraderie - everyone thoroughly enjoyed and went away with a smile on their faces.
We look forward to next year when the Province of Devon will be the host.
On Sunday the 20th August 2017 we held our annual Fun Shoot at Roger and Gill Derryman’s farm near Wadebridge.
49 members, partners and friends attended, with 30 taking part in the shoot. This consisted of 40 birds followed by a buffet lunch supplied by Steve Ball of Black Lion catering, after which we shot another 40 birds.
There was also a 30 bird flush for those wishing to take part.
The weather was very mixed with the rain holding off until the second half of the day.
Top Gun was Chas Gooding a guest with a score of 70 out of 80 receiving as a prize a bottle of Sloe Gin.
The event raised £471.00 in total of which the raffle money £235.00 is to be donated to the Cornwall Air Ambulance.
