Dear Members 
This competition took place on Sunday 29th September. We had 17 contestants scheduled to shoot 25 cards; 300 yards in the morning; 500 yards in the afternoon.
There were 3 missing on the day, one due to illness 2 no shows (weather forecast?).
We had to delay the start for about 40 minutes as a particularly heavy belt of rain went through, however, the rest of the morning was quite pleasant, a few lighter showers/drizzle. There was a medium but reasonably steady crosswind. The cards were all shot leaving some time at the end for further practice.
The afternoon started with members contending well with the increasing and more changeable wind. The last shooters had to fire into the murk of further rainstorms.
Finance: Takings £540. Markers cost £300.00 and the targets cost £330.00 total costs £660.00 so a loss of £110.00 was made.
