Charity Clay Day
June 5th; within sight of the end; hopefully, of Covid -19 regulations, and we managed to hold our first Charity Clay Day for over 12 months.
The Dolphin Clay Target Centre gave us exclusive use of the ground for our event and 25 Masons & guests turned up to ‘Have-a-Go’ and 35 members of the Society came to shoot a very testing 50 bird course.
A lovely sunny day helped and the supply of bacon sandwiches fed those who could not wait for the Dolphin Inn to open to serve ale & meals.
Two of our qualified coaches worked extremely hard to cater for the masons who were split into 4 groups.
The more experienced shooters went round the 50 bird sporting course which some found difficult & testing.
Steve & Jan Walls with Chris & John Bruffell took the entries and sorted out the groups as well as organising the Raffle and thanks to all who attended and participated, we raised just over £300
Thanks must go to Max and Elaine Drellincourt for giving us the use of the ground and making us welcome.
Our next Charity Clay Day is at Curwen Hill Farm, Wray near Lancaster on Saturday 17th July
Book in early for instruction as we expect a lot of entries as this event is in conjunction with Lancaster Light Blue Club. For our members and their guests there will be a Simulated Game Day, well worth trying if you have never experienced shooting a flush.
War of the Roses 2021
A beautiful fine day for the War of the Roses at Coniston Shooting Ground near Skipton when once again Lancashire and Yorkshire competed in the War of the Roses.
Lancashire was represented by the Province of West Lancashire and Yorkshire by the Provinces of West Yorkshire and North & East Riding.
A great turn out – 25 Masons and 15 Guests from Lancashire and 24 Masons with one guest for Yorkshire.
The targets were not exactly easy, as can be seen in the scores, but all competitors were glad to be back shooting after such a long layoff.
As the scores came in Yorkshire took the lead and retained it for a long time but gradually some good scores from Lancashire meant the Lancashire won by 12 Targets
Full list of Scores click here.
That was the first event of the year the next one is the Provincial Championships at Worsley Grange on 9th May.
