Over 400 guns and 100 teams competed in the Inter-Livery Shoot hosted by Holland and Holland on the 22nd May. Led by Nick Harris we fielded three teams and were up against big competition. The weather was kind yet again, a great day was had by all and money was raised for charities – which is, after all, the focus of the event. H&H staff put on a really good layout, sometimes challenging but overall never easy. A wide variety of birds were thrown making it interesting for all participants (birds = clays). The four man flush at the high tower remains the single most exciting of the day. Nick will be pleased to explain. The second high tower, throwing clays resembling distant full stops, remained the most challenging! Ross Straker, a Baker, was “high gun” again this year, although he didn't match his previous (2011) winning score of 79/80 - a mere 77/80 this year!
The Gunmakers were top team (they have been doing it longer than anyone else), pretty closely followed by the Horners and Clothworkers and Grocers. We were a little down the leader board this year for both individuals and teams.
Please join us for a great day out as part of the WCIT team at next year’s event which is posted for 21st May'14.
