Lightmongers had 2 teams of 4 guns take part in this amazingly well supported day at the prestigious Holland & Holland shooting grounds.
Once again this annual event hosted some 420+ guns representing 57 of the City Livery Companies. Unfortunately neither of our teams was a match to the winners, an excellent squad, of which one shot 79 out of 80 clays, from the Gunmakers Company.
A bacon or sausage baguette started the day off nicely and the weather was dry, if not a little windy, being one of the excuses used for missing. After the shooting a sumptuous buffet lunch consisting of salt beef, beef, chicken, seafood pasta, quiche and hog roast with all the trimmings was enjoyed in the marquee.
A great day was had by all 8 of us so much so that we are considering holding a Lightmongers Clay Shooting Day next year, and of course also taking part again in the Inter-livery Shoot next year.
We are looking at indications of support for our own day, members and guests, and would be pleased to hear from you if you think you might like to join in. Please email Mike Cumper firstname.lastname@example.org
