A big thank you to our Records Office Carmen

Please join me in giving a big thank you to our Records Officer, Carmen for organising and running the Christmas Fun Shoot and December Handicap last Saturday. We shot a Bray I Round to determine the Handicap winners who were Simon and Cameron for the seniors and juniors. This was the 2nd month in a row that Simon won the handicap, which was fortunate as he did not return the trophy from last month!

The Fun shoot entailed shooting at raffle tickets that were pinned to the target bosses. Each ticket matched a prize or hidden booby prizes. I can’t prove if there was any cheating going on but I won hair gel cream and a bag of sprouts!

Wendy also won the best Chirstmas jumper competition.

Cakes, biscuits and chocolates galore were brought in by members; if you weren’t there, you missed a sugar fuelled fun filled afternoon. Afterwards a few of us retired to the Dog & Gun, Aughton for a club Christmas drink having not been there for a while. It was agreed that we should return instead of the Students Bar in EHU.

Full results can be seen on your website, thanks again Carmen.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all and thanks for your company this past year. It is looking good for us to have somewhere to shoot in 2017 and onwards. A big thanks for those who helped source a suitable venue We will keep you posted on events.

Tony & Mel
