The Bucks Masonic Clay Pigeon Shooting Association (BMCPSA) had its first shoot of the year on 31st March at West London Shooting School, raising more than £600 for charity.
The day was damp and overcast but that did not stop the 30 plus shooters enjoying a well set out course with some very tricky targets, which resulted in scores from 35 to 85 out of 100 being posted.
With teams from Oxford, Middlesex and the Metropolitan shooting sections joining Buckinghamshire's shooters, the standard of competition was high.
The overall High Gun was won by a non-masonic guest from Bucks, Chris Stibbs, with a score of 85. The Masonic High Gun was won with a score of 84 by Dave Brown (Metropolitan). The ladies trophy went to Lea McDonald (Bucks) with a score of 52, and the BMCPSA members High Gun was won by Dave Hollis with a score of 77.
Roger Gills informed all present that the 2017 National would be held at the West London Shooting School on 17th June 2017. All Buckinghamshire Masons are welcome to take part and for more information interested parties should contact him.
Brian Saidman (the chairman of NAMCSS) also informed the group that there would be a UGLE shoot for the Jonathan Spence Challenge Cup on 16th September 2017 at Eriswell Lodge S.G. Suffolk. More information can again be obtained from Roger Gills.
