HIGHLAND AND LOWLAND BRIGADES’ CLUB

CLAY TARGET SHOOTING COMPETITION – 8 SEPTEMBER 2016

 

On Thursday 8 September thirteen guns gathered at the Auchterhouse Shooting Ground near Dundee and as they enjoyed a bacon roll and cup of coffee in the Clubhouse they watched a deluge of rain falling outside. Luckily the weather cleared and shooting on the five sporting stands began as planned.

The teams were made up as follows;

 

RS: David Dickson and David Simpson (with Charles Ritchie in support)

BW “A”: James Duncan Millar and Hugh Rose

BW “B”: Jamie Farquhar and Roddy Riddell

Hldrs “A”’ Marcus Braitwaite – Exley and James Gray – Cheape

Hldrs “B”: Mike Wimberley and Robbie Donaldson

SCOTS: Alastair Colville and Kriss Knott

 

Youth and speed of reaction overcame experience and the SCOTS team won by 3 points with the Hldrs “A” team (last years’ winners) coming second. Hldrs “B” came third, followed by BW “B” , BW “A” and the Royals.

 

The event was followed by lunch and all those who shot were most grateful to the H&LBC for the grant provided to offset the costs of the day. I am also most grateful to Torquil MacLeod who kindly acted as the scorer for the second year.
