On 16th July the Bucks Masonic Clay Pigeon Shooting Association hosted its second Charity Clay shoot of 2016.
The venue was the Oxford Gun Company at Jericho Farm, Oakley.
This was the first time the Association had used this venue and the weather was very kind with a hot sunny day.
There were 49 shooters representing East and West Kent, Surrey, Herts and Oxfordshire as well as our own members from Buckinghamshire.
The winning Provincial team came from East Kent with a score of 218 from 300; runners up was the team from Herts, with Bucks third.
Masonic High Gun was Chris Ray from East Kent 79/100.
Non-Masonic High Gun was Garry Stibbs (Bucks Guest) also 79/100.
Ladies High Gun was Emma Weatherhead, Herts 74/100.
Junior High Gun was Jake McDonald from Bucks.
Runner up was Ben McDonald also from Bucks.
Bucks Provincial Team winners were Beaconsfield (captained by Phil McDonald), with North Bucks second and Marlow third.
During the day £500 was raised for the Marlow Opportunity Playgroup.
The Oxford Gun Company proved to be a hit with all those at the shoot, and the B.M.C.P.S.A. proved to be a hit with the shooting ground, as the owner of the club, Doug Florent, has offered to hold other shoots and also put up a trophy.
The next shoot in the Province will be the Tercentenary Celebration shoot on 13th September 2016 at the E.J.Churchill Shooting Ground, Lane End, HP14 3NS
