The Greyton Gun Club’s annual handicap club championship was held in very windy conditions. Member’s handicaps were calculated by the committee on the following basis. Highest and lowest scores of the year were discarded and the balance averaged. This average was then given +1 and deducted from 25. Therefore if you take your score and your handicap you should get 25 or as close as possible! The best trap and sporting scores were then added.
As anticipated the wind did have some say but there were some above average performances. Jacque Bourdan shot an unbeatable 27 in the first Trap detail to win Trap with Hubertus Saurma Yeltsch 2nd on 26. Nick Downing and Bjorn Bylin both managed 27 for sporting after lunch, with Bjorn winning on count back. High Gun was a very close affair with John Reader and Nick Downing both finishing on 49/50. The winner was John Reader on a flick of a coin and count back. Well done John!
Prize giving and drinks were held at the range with Gemma Downing presenting the prizes. James Sedgwick thanked members and staff for their support during his tenure as Chairmen and wished Douglas Legg all the best with his new appointment. A toast to the late State President Nelson Mandela was made by the incoming chairman and staff were presented with a gift, Christmas food hamper and 13th check.
Our next shoot will be on the 8th of Feb 2014 and there will be a Braai at John Readers plot in the main road starting at 4 pm. Details will be forwarded to you shortly but you will only need to bring yourself and something to drink. The rest will be provided on site by the club, there are also some drinks left over from the end year that will be available.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your families all the best for Christmas and the New Year. The calendar for 2014 is coming on nicely. DL/GGCC
