Sunday, January 12th 2020, saw the Wales NSK Team challenge the British Army Clay Shooting Team at SW2000, to the first competition between these two teams.
For both teams, it was an opportunity to shoot at an extra Team event.
The morning started with showers, but these soon abated-only the blustery wind remained throughout the day. This made the day’s targets challenging to all the shooters; a look at the scores which showed only 4 x 25’s and only 4 scores of 90 and above, proves that.
However, this didn’t dampen the competitors spirit and it was hard fought by both teams-but it was also held in a high spirit and a great craic was had by all-with mixed squads of Army and Wales shooters .
After the day’s shooting, 3 shooters were tied for Overall High Gun, Dean Martin-Army, Dave Tavernor-Wales and Rob Trow-Wales and after a countback, Dave Tavernor was confirmed as Overall High Gun and Wales High Gun with Dean Martin Army High Gun.
Both shooters received their trophies from the Team Captains and Dave Tavernor also received 250 cartridges.
The closely contested Team event, was won by Wales by 33 clays over the Army
A great event with a much anticipated return match already in the planning.
A big thank you to the both Team Captains-Gareth Irving and Jason Wright and the organisers from the Wales and Army teams-and of course all the shooters.
