We held the annual Boar Trophy Team TR shoot today with teams from Horsham, Bookham, Chichester, Wandsworth and of course the home team Dorking. It was an overcast and, at times damp day but it was well supported and we raised about £265 for the Royal British Legion’s poppy appeal.
After the shooting at 300 yards we held the traditional two minutes silence to respect the fallen of conflicts past and present.
Instead of the usual 500 yard shoot we moved it to 600 yards to make better use of the club house in the damp weather. the club house was as usual very much appreciated with it being warm and dry with proper facilities and a hot cup of something.
The tem shoot was won by Horsham with 291.27, Wandsworth with 284.28 second. the results are on the page for the team shoot. We were delighted to welcome some new shooters for this TR event.
Of course the catering was once again provided by Barry who not only shoots the deer but makes the sausages himself (they are to die for) and provides them for the club members and our guests at no charge. He has provided this many times of late and we very much appreciate his effort and (very tasty) contribution.
So Thank you to all of you who came along, those who helped, as you contribution no matter how small (and many well above and beyond) who made the event possible.
