Last week we held the annual Presidents Shoot, the event was well attended, total bag was down a bit on previous years probably due to the amount of standing water and the mild weather. However it was a good opportunity for associates to get out and members who may not go out much to have a wander round and back down the pub later.
Total bag was six mallard and five teal, this years winner with the heaviest mallard at 3Ib 1oz was Luke, who is one of our junior members so well done Luke. Second prize went to the heaviest Teal, which was won by Derek at 13oz, and as no wigeon where in the bag third prize went to the second heaviest Teal which was shot by Pete and weighed in at 12oz.
