Top Gun

On the 24th of March 2018 over 26 Essex Cornerstone club members and their guests attended a clay pigeon shot at the Essex Shooting Ground in Fyfield. 

Club members arrived and enjoyed a nice fry up in the form of a bacon roll, carefully prepared by club committee members Jack Saunders, Reiss Duthie and Jonathan McDonald. Breakfast provided an opportunity to network and get to know one another before the main event.

Shortly after breakfast we were greeted by Olley from the shooting club, where we went through the safety briefing with our instructors Darren, Phil and Rod. After going through our 20 practice shots from both traps, we moved onto a competitive round consisting of 30 shots. Bro Ian Graham taking the win overall with 26 shots out of 30 and our club Treasurer Jonathan McDonald finishing a very close second.

It was a fantastic day which also saw the attendance of Club Patron and DPGM Paul Reeves who provided guidance and moral support being a keen shooter himself. There was even talk on cards by some by some members of the creation of a Cornerstone Shooting club! We’re now looking forward to next year’s shooting event!

Thank you to all who attended and made our March event such a huge success.
