In their wisdom Wiltshire Council have decided to pedestrianise Salisbury despite protests from many local businesses. While we continue to make our voices heard please see below directions in order to get to us from the ring round. Pay and display parking is still available outside the shop on Milford street. Thank you for your continued custom.
FITASC at Ham Cross is always something to look forward to and all who shot this month’s
shoot were certainly spoilt with four fantastic layouts and hospitality. With the emphasis on
government & CPSA guidance our shoot was divided into 2 groups. The morning shooters
met for breakfast at the lodge and then went to the shooting ground to enjoy their 100
FITASC targets. The afternoon shooters arrived at the lodge for lunch followed by their
shooting in the afternoon.
As the scores show this was not a shoot for the faint hearted with many of the ‘A’ class
shooters scoring below their classification. In fact this was premier league shooting with
distance, speed and height the order of the day. I spoke with Will during the shoot and asked
him what drives him to produce such an exceptional array of targets. His answer was simple –
“Use the ground and areas available, then set the layouts and targets as something that I
would enjoy shooting at myself”.
Once again Josh Brown achieved high gun with a superb 87. Equally impressive was joint
winners of ‘A’ class Colin Hanson & Dave Clifford on 86. Steve Hewlett pipped ‘B’ class on
80, meanwhile Britta Beach scored an excellent 70 to win ‘C class. Ed Hiscock after a long
absence from our shoot scored an impressive 60 to not only win ‘D class but achieved most
improved shot with +19.
High Gun – Josh Brown 87.
Class A – Colin Hanson & Dave Clifford 86. Jeff Waters & Mike Hillyer 84.
Class B – Steve Hewlett 80. Chris Dare & Richard Pike 79.
Class C – Britta Beach 70. Mark Bradshaw 69, David Moss 65.
Class D – Ed Hiscock 60, Max Hiscock 58, Josh Hiscock 55.
Most improved Ed Hiscock 60 + 19. Greenfields draw prize winner for all who entered is
Mark Bradshaw. Both Ed & Mark win vouchers and cartridges respectively which can be
redeemed at the shop with proof of identity please.
Next month we travel to Roundwood Shooting Ground which will be on Wednesday 21st
October. Please note that this will be a very limited shoot with only 18 shooting in the
morning and 18 shooting in the afternoon. This shoot will be therefore booked on a first come
first serve basis, please bring your own refreshments for this event.
Finally many thanks to Will & Fran with their team at Ham Cross for an unforgettable day.
Thankyou to Greenfield Guns for their generous support and sponsorship and to Rob Alan for
his work and assistance with the results & leader board.
