West London Shooting School welcomed us back with a brisk morning but kindly warmed the hands of our shooters with teas and coffees, not warm enough to stop Tom Jansons scoring 0/10 on the first stand of the morning though. During these times, West London provided each shooter with their own gun for our sporting networking ensuring the safety of our small teams.
And we’re back! This morning we hosted our second clay pigeon shoot of the year (a short 182 days after the first…) at a new location and with a few new guidelines to adhere to with the current situation we face.
On the back of Storm Ciara and the quickly approaching Storm Dennis, who would have thought that the our first clay pigeon shoot of the year would have been a sunny (if not a little chilly) affair!
Today marks the seventh and final clay pigeon shooting event of the year! Throughout the year each shoot-day has been better than the last, offering our attendees new experiences, useful conversations and a Friday morning away from the office. This morning was undoubtedly the coldest and threatened to thwart our plans with rain and occasional winds. However, as our attendees arrived the weather became more favourable which also went towards raising our competitor’s spirits.
Friday 15th November marks the final Jansons clay pigeon shoot of 2019. Throughout the year, Jansons has been joined by many collaborators and friends at these shoots, forging new relationships and building upon current ones. The Jansons team would like to thank West London Shooting School for their continued hospitality and all the attendees for their enthusiasm providing the perfect environment for these events.
In this part of the season, it can be increasingly difficult to find anything close to or that resembles “good weather”. We find ourselves scrambling for opportunities to enjoy the dwindling sunlight while battling weather that curiously resembles the film “The Day After Tomorrow”. For those of you who have not seen the film here is a three-word description, it’s very cold. However, the weather on the day of the annual shooting cup was particularly favourable, so much so we had occasional bursts of sunlight bringing out all the vibrant colours of the E.J. Churchill grounds. With the weather in good standing and E.J.Churchill’s award-winning clay pigeon shooting grounds offering a scenic background our forty-four competitors had an exciting day ahead of them!
We are now six months into 2019, what better way to mark this milestone than a Friday morning clay pigeon shoot! This time around we had more of a mixed group, the ladies present definitely displayed some refreshing competitive spirit which made the morning more enjoyable. The format remained the same, a battle for the individual prize of Top Gun as well as the Flush team prize. The winner of each respective title would take home some bubbly to ease in their weekend! The favourable weather meant enthusiasm was high, this also meant our twelve competitors had no excuses!
We are now three clay pigeon shooting events into 2019 and the competitiveness has remained unrelenting. It’s always amazing to see a group of people who may not know each other basking in the competitive spirit. Regardless of the fact, someone might be a beginner and the other a certified pro, you will manage to enjoy yourself thoroughly. In typical fashion expectations were high considering the good weather we tend to have on shoot days, today’s weather was clear for the most part leaving our competitors with no excuses.
After the success of our first clay pigeon shoot last month expectations were high for our second. If the promise of a full English breakfast wasn’t enough motivation to get you out of bed, the prospect of beating your colleagues in some compettive sport definately did the trick .
The idea of spending your Friday morning clay pigeon shooting then later devouring a well earned full english breakfast seems only a dream when you think about it. If you add a combination of great weather and competitive spirit to the equation, the result is the perfect morning to end a busy week. This was the case as we kicked off our first clay pigeon shooting event of the year.
