“On Sunday 19th August 2018 we once again held our Fun Shoot at Roger and Gill Derryman’s farm near Wadebridge.
33 members, partners and friends were present, 25 shot the Sport Trap layout, which consisted of 5 Stand’s with each person shooting 25 birds.
This was followed by a buffet lunch supplied by Black Lion Catering, after which another round of 25 birds per person was shot.
There was also a 3 man 50 bird Flush shoot which most people were able to take part in.
The weather was dry and the company great with lots of laughter and enjoyment, everyone said that they had enjoyed the day.
The Top Gun’s were Graham Bennett for the men and Ruth Bywaters for the ladies.
Team winners for the Flush were Peter George, Ron Nako and John Pritchard.
The event raised £325.00 towards our charity account.”
