18th October - Trafalgar Competition

It was a good day with no wind or rain and plenty of shooters. We had some more new faces and new ones from last time returning again which is good to see. It is only three days since the shoot and already I have a list of twenty two booking places on the next shoot.


The John Midgley Cup was presented to Luke who was quite surprised. He just beat another member by a fraction as his scores had recently improved. He said it was because I had been taking care of his gun and cleaning it each week when he was moving house.


The Trafalgar Competition went well and prizes will be given out next shoot. I was asked by a non shooting man why we celebrated Trafalgar. It was one of the most well known sea battles and Nelson a popular Hero. One of our members is ex Royal Navy and he suggested it and we have done it for several years now and everyone enjoys it. One of our members is ex Army and asked why we had no celebration of an army battle so last year we had the battle of Waterloo. This year with Covid battles to fight we were in shut down so missed the date, hopefully we will be able to do it next year.


The next competition of course will be at Christmas.
