Third Annual Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot
Clay pigeon shoot at Nettleton Lodgethumbnail view
Warm sunshine and light breeze greeted us in the morning at Nettleton Lodge and the team of volunteers soon had the marquees and BBQ set up ready for the start of the competition at 12:00. Arrivals were slower than last year and by finish we had 16 entrants plus 3 re-entries.
There was a good take up on the raffle and the 'guess the number of cartridges' challenge which was won by our very own John Norman.
Ian and Stuart kept the burgers flipping, onions sizzling and sausages rolling, with liquid refreshments being served by the ladies.
Nick Wells and Matthew Fotheringham shared the first prize in the mens competition with 26/30 and most graciously donated their prize money to charity.
Sarah Sorrel won the first prize in the ladies competition with 23/30.
Will Jacob, Nick Wells, Pete Brown, Chris Sorrel, and R Davies each won a bottle of wine for hitting an orange clay.
