Just a few pictures too show a few on here who wished us well how the day went, we had 76 teams off five on Saturday so after weeks of preparation the day was on us and the weather was looking good too...

First teams out the reception tent and on stands ready to take aim by 9.55am and we were off, a few normal teething problems odd battery giving up here and there but over all with the 40 odd batterys and traps out there working it was to be exspected.

To cut along day short the last team fired there last shot at 8.10pm... so 78 thousand cartridges later everything went silent..then too the marquee for the auction and speeches..and then party time live bands till 2am..

Oh and what we raised.........not final but so far............. £300, 000 quid.!!!!!!!!

THANKS TOO EVERYONE WHO GAVE THERE DAY UP TO SCORE/ LOAD TRAPS /HOST ETC ETC..http://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-77985500-1368985626.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-11488700-1368985738.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-47988900-1368985817.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-91738700-1368985881.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-84688000-1368986149.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-89071900-1368986258.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-90528200-1368986410.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-48565200-1368986496.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-76649300-1368986587.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-28363700-1368986661.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-37969200-1368986719.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-58058200-1368986799.jpghttp://www.shootclayforum.com/uploads/monthly_05_2013/post-1038-0-90516400-1368986916.jpg

Hell of a result there Mark hope you all get some recognition for your efforts and praise for what the shooting world can do for good causes, is that the ground in the pics you use for the game shoot ? it looks very good.
