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!
The summer may be coming to an unfortunate end but that does not mean the fun stops with it. Friday 13th September saw Jansons and its collaborators participating in the fifth clay pigeon shoot of the year! The weather was particularly favourable meaning all of our shooters had the warmth of the sun to boost their energies for the morning. The format remained the same, first, a battle for the individual prize of Top Gun. Second, a battle for the Flush team prize. The winner/winners of each respective title would take home some bubbly to usher in their weekend!
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.
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.
