Here are the lads with my assistant on the day mick (the fat) gat. in the centre, I have to give him some stick because his team beat me on the day, I’ll never live it down.

We split into 2 teams of 4 and had a little competition, braving the manchester weather, The fat lads team won, oh my god.

but all the lads shot very well on the day dave no 6 from left performing like a pro. I think he was micks ringer.

Despite the weather we all enjoyed our little get together and from mick (fat lad gat) and myself we wish Graeme all the best for His future wedding, (poor lad) All the best lads hope to meet up again sometime.

Below are pictures from a shoot on the 27th June 2010. This was  arranged for Hinchliffe’s  old farm restaurant, held at farnley shooting ground.  also the day England lost.

  This was a nice event held in very hot weather, with temperatures in the 80′s. nearly all where novices, but at the end of the day. some very respectable scores where noted.

After a bit of tuition the lads where soon popping the clays off.

While others watched in eager anticipation getting a nice tan.

Louise, the restaurant manageress on the left organised the event from the restaurant, side. and made sure everyone enjoyed the day.

The teams of around 8 people took turns shooting at 6 stands, moving from 1 stand to the next giving them a good variety of clays to shoot at.

The day started with drinks and bacon butties at hinchliffes, then after shooting it was all back to the restaurant for a belly full of hinchliffe’s fine rump steak. a great day out for all.

Lessons, for Kevin, Monique, Paris, and friends Robin and his wife. Held at Farnley shooting ground. sunday  2nd may 2010.

After the shoot happy people, photos by kevin.

Here’s How its done. Monique and Paris, Smoking clays.

And now a mention of 3 new shooters.

coached by me at farnley. 7th dec 2008.

Firstly young jake healey.

Just taking up clays at 13 years old.

sorry Jake I forgot your picture but I’ll get one later.

Came for his first lesson with a gun that was too big for him and didn’t fit.

however after 20 minutes coaching, went with his dad onto the main shoot, I met up with him on a looper stand, the one most clay shooters dread, a word in his ear and he dusted 6 out of 8, we’ll be seeing more of Jake later i’m sure.

next, this pair of lads never shot clays before.

After 20 mins coaching I took em out onto the main shoot,

thy hit everything going achieving aprox 30 out of 50.

could be shooting for the 1012 olimpics?

Paul clarkson and mates, having a competitive shoot.

The venue! Rufforth. Northern activities centre.

This was a competitive, event arranged for the lads,

Most having never shot before,

this was the first event of this kind for them.

Having tried everything from archery to tiddlywinks

Here is the group of happy shooters. after a corking Rufforth breakfast

First man up, paul,

He drew the short straw having arranged the event He had the dubious task of going first,

with The gun I took on the day, my winchester  sporter. Too long in the stock for him. he still shot well,

now for the rest of the team.

High Tower. I could just see over His elbow. and I am 6 foot.

Good stance and gun mount.

Where is the little bugger I’ll get him

Got him.

And last but not least Adrian.left handed, but with a dominant right eye, hit about 3 of his first 15 shots,

shooting from his left shoulder.

Then swopped the gun to his rt shoulder,

and started smashing the clays to finish 2nd over all

The lads all did well on the day, being a new venture for them, and I am sure they all enjoyed the experience.

The winner on the day. High Tower, don’t ask me how he did it I couldn’t see over his elbow!.

All the best lads and many thanks to Phill and his team,

for the excellent set up.

some pictures from the MUSTARD AND PUNCH JUNE 28TH 2009 SHOOT

A nice hot sunny day, as usual the clients all enjoyed them selves, starting with the usual butties and beverages.

Here are some pictures of the happy gang.
