Many Defy the Rain to Enjoy Our Easter Fun Easter Shoot

It is typical that the rain had showed signs of stopping just as we had a call from a gentleman at 12.30pm to ask how the weather was doing then within ten minutes of the call it fired back up again.  Sadly it continued on throughout the afternoon.  Our original expectations of wet and muddy proved to be pretty accurate in the end.

We really appreciate those that made the effort to come out any way, bringing with them jovial high spirits and accepting the conditions without complaint. Some used the front car park and took advantage of a lift in a 4x4. It would have undoubtedly been far busier if not for the downpour most of the day but numbers turned out to be pretty good in spite of this.

The side by sides seemed to be out in good numbers with many relishing the chance to show what they can do with one. It was nice to have something that was for our practice shooters to have a go on.

It is doubly typical that tomorrow, Tuesday, 3rd April 2018, the forecast says that it is going to be 15 degrees and dry!  Good for our Tuesday shooters but of no help on Easter Bank Holiday Monday.  If only we could control the weather ....

Thank you all for coming along and making it a great day.  Let's hope for better conditions on Tuesday and the weekend.

Please read on for the results.
