A great turnout at the recent clay shoot saw many benefit from the skilled and entertaining instructors who were on hand to help as well as enjoying swapping success or otherwise stories afterwards over a burger or two. Our thanks to Gareth, Hannah and family, Rob, Walter and Dan Whitehouse who organised the instructors.
