Yes, yes, it’s a long time since I’ve written, but, being a world traveller, I’ve been away – again. This time to sunny Italy. And it was sunny all week. Perfect for some serious training.
We flew from Edinburgh to Milan Malpensa, collected the hire car – paid for in Swiss Francs (don’t ask) and then drove to Conselice, Marcello Dradi’s ground. There’s a little hotel and restaurant right on the ground – almost – which makes for the perfect shooting holiday. Good food, good shooting. Altogether good. We did a ton of training on the skeet ranges. Rounds were 6 euros and cartridges – RC2 – sold at 42 euros for 250, which isn’t bad. Peter, top left, had no bother getting through his morning’s quota!!!!!
Conselice is pretty and has a supermarket for buying bits and bobs but the food in the restaurant is good and the ground has catering on a Saturday and Sunday. This photo is of the clocktower in the town.
