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!
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!
A beautifully sunny morning complemented further by the tranquil setting at the Brockett Hall, this breakfast event already seemed to be on the front foot before our guests arrived. Considering the busy, high-paced and often time-consuming environments we work in, Brockett Hall offered a relaxing change of pace!
