Inclement weather failed to dampen spirits at the Clay Pigeon Shoot Challenge held during Home Hardware's Convention earlier this month.
The event took place at the championship-standard South West Shooting School, with 24 members and partners taking part.
The results of the competition were as follows:
· First in the ladies was Angela Langbridge of Langbridge Home Hardware; second was Anne Baker
· First in the men's experienced was Chris Blanchard of Blanchard's Home Hardware; joint second were Richard Burdett and Graham Stemp of Brutons Home Hardware
· First in the men's novice was Robert Watson of Watson Home Hardware; second was Richard Taylor
"The standard of shooting was exceptionally high considering half of the competitors had never used a shotgun before," commented Home Hardware chief executive Martin Elliott.
"Although the weather was against us, it was a very enjoyable afternoon, and our sincere thanks to STV for their very kind sponsorship once again, which made the event possible."
