Christmas Cup Results

We had excellent weather and a good turnout for the Chrismas Cup Muzzle Loading Competition.

The comp was twenty birds shot between three traps from a central stand, though hazy smoke filled sunshine, very Waterloo witha Yorshire twist.

Gordon Robinson was the only competitor who didnt have difficulties with a particular trap. As such Gordon ended three shots clear with a well deserved win.

1st Gordon Robinson 16/20
2nd Paul Nelson 13/20
3rd John Sherlock 12/20

A big thanks to all the competitors, the far prettier half’s of Mick, John and Ian for their efforts preparing and serving the food and also Mark the farmer for the lend of the Landy to transport everything.

Evening Shoots at Tong

Dear Members

We had a very poor turnout at Tong’s evening shoot on the 14th June with only John Poole and one other shooting.

To make the evening shoots financially viable for the club we need a few more shooters if we are going to keep Tong running.

To help us get an idea on numbers please contact John Poole or Mick Rush in advance of the evening shoots (dates on the events page), this way we can plan the evenings better.

Thanks in advance


Club Sec

Help Required

We have a delivery of clays coming to Tong next Wednesday the 6th June which need unloading off the delivery van.
