The Isle of Man Clay Pigeon Shooting Club hosted 29 eager shooters for a successful private event on Saturday 5th June – Happy Birthday Tracey!
Split into five squads, competitors tackled a variety of targets from three stands, warming up with a selection of incoming clays and finishing with a challenging barrage of on-report pairs.
Stand #1 was dominated by Guy Templar, Stephen Fisk, Andrew Leinwand and our own John Bateson all on a perfect 7, but Leinwand succumbed to the incomers on Stand #2 leaving Bateson open to challenge from Richard MacNee with 6 and 7 respectively, with leading lady Esther Marks improving her 5 on Stand #1 to 6 on #2, hot on the heels of Templar and Fisk each at 12.
MacNee was joined by James Simpson with 10 points apiece on Stand #3 with Bateson in third on 9 kills, but Guy Templar completed #3 with a resounding 11 to draw overall with MacNee on 23 points today – great shooting by Guy and Richard. Esther Marks headed up the ladies with 20 points while at the other end of the table our Clay Conservation Award goes to Anna Templar with a wholesome 1.
On behalf of everyone here at IOMCPSC I’d like to say what a pleasure it’s been to welcome you on our range today, and I hope we’ll get the chance to shoot with you again throughout the summer.
