Shoot for Gold, July 2020

G’day all and I hope you are in good health.

Last Friday 31st July I held the draw at the field, it being the last day of July. It was the weekly maintenance day so there was only Jerry Branch and David John present (Jerry marking out lines and David on the mower).Note these names for the list of winners now shown below.

GOLD (£25) ………………………………………….. David John (31)

RED (£15) ………………………………………….... Millie Payne (61)

BLUE (£10) …………………………………………. Jerry Branch (19)

Jerry drew the balls whilst David carried on mowing. This is a remarkable fluke, compounded by the fact that neither Jerry or David could tell me what their magic numbers were until, of course, I told them. It made for a bit of jocularity on a lovely sunny day with the field looking so nice. Thank goodness my number (9) was not drawn as well: that would have required a board of enquiry!

We are now in August and I will hold the draw at the field shortly having checked in advance there will be more people shooting!

Shoot for Gold, June 2020

G’day folks

Due to the situation the world finds itself in with Covid-19 as you know shooting has been suspended until very recently. This has had a knock on effect with the draw; however with the field now open I have been able to hold the draw, albeit with very few members to act as witnesses.

Nevertheless I was able to hold the June draw a couple of days ago at the field in the presence of Mick Hayman and Colin McKenzie who were shooting on a hot afternoon. The considerable presence of Colin drew the balls.

GOLD (£25) …………………………………….. Trevor Smith (1)

RED (£15) …………………...…………………. Dan Webb (3)

BLUE (£10) …………………………….......….. Chris Stoneham (42)

Well done everyone for keeping in the draw at this time of disruption when we all want to be out shooting at the field, particularly in this glorious weather. It was looking fantastic and congratulations to all who keep it looking so good. I even saw the resident sparrow hawk, which lives in the trees along the road, just to cheer me up.

As ever
