Ups and downs


It’s an age since I’ve written – one of the main excuses being that I’ve had that most ghastly thing – MAN FLU!!!! Men will know it’s much worse for us!!!

How and ever I’ve still been about.
Southern Counties hosted the first GB OS Selection shoot last weekend. John McCarthy shot brilliantly in none too fine conditions to come out the clear winner on 122+22. There was a big gap between him and the next shooter – Richard Brickell.

Good news for Scotland is that Alison Nicol shot very well in the qualification and the final and is now number 2 GB lady. Further is that Sian Bruce, 14 years old, at her first big shoot, made the final!!!! Sian said she was “tickled pink” and particularly enjoyed the pretty colours when she hit the flash targets. A big future for this young lady lies ahead.

Roger Searle won class C with and equal PB which bodes well for the rest of the season and Charles Davidmann came in a good third in the same class. Just shows you!!! One competitor in his 60’s and one only 15. It’s a great game.

Drew Christie and Sian shot at Kippen last week – both posting personal bests. Drew came in with a good 94 – not that he was happy – and Sian shot a 79. Cameron Murray who at the moment shoots a PB every time he competes came in with a 77. All good for Scottish shooting.

I’m off down the road to the Brittannia GP to day so more next week.

GOOD SHOOTING.
