The forecast had predicted rain from about 11.00am onwards. It was right.!
Not to be controlled by such a trivial thing as rain, a few hardy club members turned up, determined to make the Club Champs a good days’ shooting.
Chris Roberts dug out the waterproof faces, (that’s target faces…) and we got going as soon as we could, with the proviso that if the weather became too bad we could truncate the round from a full day Hereford to a morning Long National.
We managed to get almost two dozen in before the rain appeared and another dozen before it started to make an appreciable impact. (namely, when Julie dived into her tent to do a quick striptease and reappear fully clad in oilskins..)
The offer of stopping after the fourth dozen was firmly turned down and we squelched on to complete the round. Even the stoutest of us agreed that that was enough…
Carol the unstoppable, turned up just before we called it a day, with cakes and similar goodies; so we were able to enjoy the fruits of her labours while supping some very welcome hot tea. John sorted out the scores and in no time at all we had the presentation, Carol very kindly agreeing to act as Lady P for the day.
The results are as follows:
|1st Lady Recurve||415||Julie Morling|
|1st Gent Recurve||413||Kevin Jones|
|1st Lady Barebow||249||Sue Cook|
|1st Gent Barebow||253||Tim Griffiths|
|Best Gold||Kevin Jones|
|Worst White||Peter King|
|Gehler Greening Trophy||Sue Cook|
Remember the next club event is the Head 2 Head on the 9th September, then the Longbow Day on the 16th September
