Sat, 29 Aug 2015

Last evening of the summer League – blessed with perfect weather

Perfect weather conditions led to some excellent scores on the final evening of the Isle of Man Shooting Clubs weekly series of matches. Sixteen shooters came to the firing line under the control of the Clubs Range Officer, Brian Fozard, for two of the three competitions of the evening, round 8 of the Osborn Carpets 2nd 600 and the Empire Garage Tynwald shield round 18. In the Osborn Carpets scratch match, the win went to Andy Potter posting 586 x 600 from John Wood in second on countback from Bill Jones, who it appears has finally found his mojo after some below par results. Two 100’s were scored during the match, one to Mike Clague, who appeared to be very disappointed with his scores and the second to Ashley Gardner.
