Shooters gather for Bordertown Gun Club events

Once again the weather made for very trying conditions for shooting, this time a few showers with a very strong westerly wind.

The wind resulted in a very challenging extreme left hand target from the number one trap.

First event, 50 Target Double Barrel Championship saw possibles from Gavin Height and Ash Bolwell with John, Ash and Wayne Hawker all dropping only one target.

Gavin and Ash then shot another fifty before deciding to share overall honours.
