This week, a small fish-tail wind proved too much for most shooters to handle, although Peter Brown and Dennis Hilton made it look pretty easy. However, Dennis once again showed his dominance and skills by winning the toss of the coin for the aggregate.
Shooting will be from the 800 yard mound next Saturday. Anyone is welcome to come along and try or just have a look. The range is located opposite Koppers, adjacent to the Experimental Farm, Junction Hill. It will be a 1pm start as usual.
