    Border Stalkers autumn shoot. August 19th at Bowscar.

    This is the Bill Grant Memorial Shoot.
    Shooting format similar to DMQ and to be held at our usual venue at Bowscar, Cumbria. 10am start.
    FAC and Insurance please.
    The pool shoot will be running all day and an RFD will be present with an array of ingredients for the re-loader.
    Hopefully there will be prizes for all as usual.

    Hi Hubert,


    when the NW BDS range days are planned for 2013, i'll make sure the dates do not clash, it was unavoidable on the 19th i'm afraid. I know there are people who would like to go to both - me included!

    Today was a miserable wet day with some intermittent heavy showers.
    Turnout was reasonable in view of the poor conditions but our usual Scottish contingent were absent.

    Scores however were very high generally with a magnificent perfect pair of cards being shot by seventeen year old Steven Wolf of Carlisle.
    These were the best pair of cards I have ever seen shot in over 30 years.
    His grouping target at 100 yards had a tiny 3 shot clover-leaf in the centre of the bullseye.

    Results.
    The Bill Grant Memorial Shield and Corney Cup, Steven Wolf 120/120.
    1st. S Wolf, 90+30=120/120.
    2nd. A Corney, 89+30=119.
    3rd. G Hare, 88+30=118.
    4th. C Wolf, 90+28=118.
    5th. D Hartley, 88+29=117.
    6th. P Parker, 89+28=117.
    7th. K Gaygor, 89+28=117.
    8th. J Grice, 90+27=117.

    The Ray Barnes Trophy for Lightweight Rifles was won by K Gaygor.

    Pool Shoot.
    1st Peter Parker.

    Winner of the free raffle for a bottle of Malt, Ken Story.

    Some outstanding scores were presented on this mediocre day.
    Thank you all who so generously donated prizes and to those who assisted on the ranges.

    HWH.
