National Skeet HI Report 2021

National Skeet Home International at Fauxdegla 2021

Hi All

It was long awaited international after missing out in 2020,  our weather was very good over the weekend with some challenging targets at times.

I was personally proud of all the team members over the 2 days of shooting with 3 of them really shining through - Thomas McCarle, Ronnie Crichton & Becky Kibble.

Scottish ladies and the juniors started superbly on day 1.  Thomas McCarle, new cap, with his 1st one hundred straight and Becky Kibble with a 99 missing low 7 for the ton!

The Seniors also shooting well in day 1 aswell as Super Vets & juniors.

The trend continued into day 2 with the ladies, Becky Kibble , Wendy Taylor & Allison Brown, pushing 7 targets in front to lead the way and finish winning ladies team.

Juniors, Thomas McCarle & Ben Cumming, also pushing England to the last few targets of the day and taking runners up.

Seniors, after being behind by 4 targets in the morning of day 2  managed to keep it going and after a shoot off with Jersey finished runner up to England.

Super Vets managed to also keep it going through the 2 days to finish runner up to England.

Vets over the 2 days made a good effort but didn't manage a placing.

27 August Update

Good Afternoon Lads and Lassies

Hope your all well and getting positive about us moving forward and out of this horrible pandemic . As my last post intimated a number of date changes have already taken place . There was one omitted, the East area championship has been moved from May to July 31st still at Auchterhouse .

As we hope to get registered shoots moving next weekend wish to reiterate that whilst this is exciting we must adhere to rules . There is no easy way to skirt around this as progress for the future of shooting is down to everybody involved in the sport .

First and foremost Safety , please take care and check everything especially after shooting a line just double check cartridges are removed etc - I know you know . It has been a long time since we have been involved in competition so just take your time to settle back .

control and sensibility - the shooting grounds had a big financial hit amidst covid19 and will be delighted to welcome us back . Please adhere to their rules and apply all the guidelines set . Things have changed and for the foreseeable future my friends culminating in what we can and cannot do . Please do not handle score cards after you have completed a line or have any query on the scorecard. This is very important for keeping the ground in control of the rules  . The referee will answer any relative questions but this is a rule which has been advised by STS  and must be followed .

We as shooters must accept things have changed for now . The grounds will have sanitiser and don't be shy to use it . In most cases unless informed otherwise take your own food and drink , clearly if your driving a distance you will need something . The sensibility is down to us,  keep 2m apart basically and that more or less is that . Just be sensible, adhere to the instruction from the grounds and let's get going . It has been so long since we have enjoyed our sport and been back to the comradeship with friends around the country  .

The emphasis is to get back in the groove , let's all work together and we will get to where we need to be in a month or two . It is exciting to know we are starting again and I look forward to seeing you all soon .

For the grounds I will be handing out membership leaflets to grounds shortly and would appreciate if you can place them where they can be easily seen .
