Highland Perthshire Clay Shooting Club
We rang the changes at the clubs last shooting event. Instead of our usual competition shooting a “Compact” was the name of the game. Until a year ago I had no idea what this competition was. Each of the five participants stand in individual open fronted cubicles. The cubicles are formed up side by side facing the target area. Each cubicle is designed to restrict the participant’s arc of fire so that everyone is safe and sound. In front of each cubical and standing at ground level is a notice board. On each is written a sequence of letters. Each notice board has a different sequence of letters. Targets are released according to the sequence. Each participant takes his or her turn to shoot their sequence of targets. On the participant saying “pull” one or two targets are released from the trap high into the air. Some targets are released “on report” that is to say, once the participant has shot at the first target the second target is released. The final two targets of the sequence are released simultaneously. Once all participants have completed shooting at their particular sequence every one moves on to the next cubical. Oh dear I hope you are still with me on all this?
Before losing the plot please spare a thought for the poor people having to release the targets and keep the scores! I released the targets!
Please ring me, Ted on 07821940252 if you want to join us on one of our shooting events.
