A great fun day at the range today for the first running of the Fathers Day Novelty Shoot. Very windy conditions didn't scare off the the 24 brave souls who were happy to have a red hot shot at targets that at best were unpredictable.**
The day started out with 2 x rounds of 15 target Compak "A" range a little more sheltered than B range. Then we moved on to the Novelty events with pairs shooting 4 simultaneous targets and the 3 shooter teams shooting 30 random targets. Good fun.
**(To clarify. A clay target weighs 105 grams it is travelling at about 80 km an hour typically shot at 40 mtrs. A shotshell contains about 338 pellets travelling at about 1300 km/hr add to the mix 70 km/hr winds, point shoot and hope fore the best.)
