Thu, 27 Aug 2015

Excellent results at Sinclair

                With perfect weather conditions, the penultimate rounds of all three Isle of Man Shooting Club’s weekly matches managed to get underway on time on Monday evening and once again, the ‘inform’ Andy Potter led the way in the Osborn Carpets 2nd 600 posting a terrific 590 x 600, with Tom Lord claiming second on countback from Richard Arthur in third position both hitting 584. Just a single ‘full house’ was scored from the fifteen shooters and that went to veteran shooter, Tom Lord who had extremely constant series throughout the match. It was great to see an old face back on the firing line – Trevor Taubman and he had a good result landing fifth position on 581, an excellent score considering that he has hardly touched a rifle for years due to his involvement with administration in the IoM Commonwealth Games Association.
