Well it didn’t look very promising first thing this morning the weather I mean. A nice crisp layer of frost across everything, it looked quite nice as long as you could see it through the fog. Thankfully the sun managed to break through and burn of the fog to give us a bright and sunny mornings shooting. Darren set up the 72 bird shoot for your entertainment this morning, he said to me “this will get them thinking” Now whether he was in a bad mood (because he had to set up in the freezing fog) or was he just feeling evil I don’t know, but the feedback I got from most of you guys was the word “technical” to describe the shoot. It was a very technical set up”, “it was set up in a technical way” etc etc. Although most of the targets looked quite straight forward you had to think about the pickup point and the breaking area, Darren had used his TECHNICAL skills (ha ha) and made the clay(s) curve in flight causing most folk to over lead, this caught out even some of our best shooters so if you are a novice shooter don’t feel too bad about missing them. I’ve said this before try to view the flight line of the clay from as many angles as it is safe to do so, then when you’re in the shooting stand you’ll have a better idea of the flight line. The best score I saw was 59 but there might have been higher, if you averaged between 38 to 45 you were doing well. You never know Darren might show a little mercy and put on some really easy targets next time, I did say might. Hope you all enjoyed yourselves. Pictures of you guys having fun are courtesy of Simon.S cheers mate. See you all back here on the 17th March. TC Just to let you know The Lodge Farm Cafe will be open on the next shoot, serving breakfasts, tea, coffee etc, opening time 8.00 until 2.00 check out their website https://lodgefarmcafe.co.uk/
