If you had been checking on the weather forecast for this morning you probably wouldn’t have gone past the front door, overcast, and rain plus later on thunder and lightning. Well as it turned out there was none of that here at LFCC in fact it was a cracking morning. Once again Darren was up early setting up the 72 bird shoot which he described as a mixture of high and low targets but all very hitable. Let’s start with stand 9 at the bottom of the ground, a high right to left over the trees the problem here was the sun, even with dark glasses on the clay could be difficult to see, you could wait for a passing cloud but who has got time for that. This was followed by a right to left rabbit which was fairly straight forward. Stand 8 was a pair of incomers to your right hand side, no problem there. Stand 7, a pair of reasonably high targets both from the right of you one going straight out the other one slightly higher going right to left, most folk shot these as singles. Stand 6, a right to left and left to right again these were shot as singles, unless you were feeling brave. Stand 5, if you’d ever shot skeet the right hand clay was like being on peg 4 shooting the low house and the left hander was similar to peg 2 high house, most managed to hit the left one but the right hander stumped quite a few. Stand 4, a high left to right quartering followed by a right to left quartering, very much like a teal again most shot these as singles. Stand 3, this time a left to right crosser followed by right to left crosser, if you shot these as a pair well done. Stand 2, right to left going away low quartering with a left to right incoming looper, didn’t see any problems with those ones. Stand 1, two high incomers each one at a slightly different angle, most shooters had more success in hitting them as pairs rather than singles. I didn’t get to see every ones card but the ones I did see seemed to average out at about 55 to 60, the best was 66 and the lowest was 41 as I said I didn’t see every card. It seems like everyone was enjoying themselves breaking clays and chatting to like minded people. See you all back here on the 21 st July for another 72 bird sporting. TC P.S. Congratulations to Lewis Hamilton and the Mercedes Team for winning the F1 at Silverstone.
