    As expected the weather was perfect with very little wind but the turnout of riflemen/women was disappointing with only 19 entries.
    With the lambing season in full flow some of our regulars were absent.
    Indicative of the good weather scores were high with two perfect scores of 120/120 and two 119/120, both of these scores were not easily sorted out as all were nearly identical.

    Leading 5 competitors as follows :-
    1. P.Parker 120/120 - Roebuck 90/90. Grouping 30/30. [ M.Newby Decanter.]
    2. stag1933 120/120 - Roebuck 90/90. Grouping 30/30. [ Norwest Shield.]
    3.D.Hartley 119/120 - Roebuck 89/90. Grouping 30/30.
    4.J.Wolfe 119/120 - Roebuck 89/90. Grouping 30/30.
    5.K.Story 117/120 - Roebuck 89/90. Grouping 28/30.

    The free raffle for a bottle of Scotch was won by John Wolfe.
    Pool shoot, 1st K.Atkinson. 2nd Lisa Hartley. 3rd D.Latimer. 4th A.Wood. 5th D.Hartley.

    Grateful thanks to all who so kindly donated prizes.

    Hubert.

    l must send Ratwife's and my appologies for non attendance on the 19th, as l shall be traveling back from Greece following spinal surgery. Finman's brother has kindly offered to sort my problems to the best of his vast knowledge and capabilities, so you can all get ready for a real mythering once l return!! And the Ratwife's off playing with them Nags again.

    l hope it all goes well, and the turnout improves to give a better challenge to the field.

    Kind, and Respectful Regards.

    Ratty.

    Rather similar to the DMQ shooting test.
    A pool shoot runs all day also.
