Nephew wins tro­phy

Bush Telegraph - - FOCUS ON DANNEVIRKE - By JIM MOR­TON Pub­lic­ity Of­fi­cer, Clay Shoot­ing Club

Our shoot on Sun­day Oc­to­ber 28 was for the Colin Wood Memo­rial 50 skeet tro­phy.

The mod­er­ate gusty winds cre­ated some chal­leng­ing tar­gets. Some tar­gets flew high, the next would bounce around and then drop quickly.

Shot on a hand­i­cap ba­sis with shooters hav­ing be­tween one and 12 lives —mean­ing they could miss the same num­ber of tar­gets as their hand­i­cap and con­tinue on un­til they miss one more. Other years have had a good group of shooters get past the first two rounds. This year how­ever there were only four shooters lin­ing up for the third round of skeet — Hay­ley Morice (0 lives left), Kevin Bar­bridge (three lives), Paul Wilkey (four lives) and Rus­sell Wood (six lives).

After six sta­tions Paul and Rus­sell were the last two left and both had used their hand­i­cap up, so first miss was out. In the end it was fit­ting for Rus­sell Wood, the nephew of Colin Wood, to win the tro­phy.
