Area 20 Clay Pigeon Shoot & Lunch at Highbullen Golf & Country Club
24 September 2022
Saturday 24 September and we were lucky with a bright dry morning for our Area 20 Clay Pigeon shoot in North Devon.
We welcomed new members Mario and Keith who joined the group of 17 ready to enjoy a morning’s shooting experience under the expert guidance of Tim and Roger from Blue Fox Target Sports at Bullen Farm near Chulmleigh.
Spilt into two groups the competition quickly warmed up as we vied for the promised ‘prizes’ for best shot of the day. Undoubtedly, the title went to Steve Blackmore who, with his own gun and previous experience, showed us how it was done. But the days real winner was young Luca Duval who, on his first ever shoot, shot 9 out of 10 clays on round one and went on to get the winners cap for the gents. Very surprisingly, and she’s sure this was through no talent whatsoever, Deborah just pipped Mandy to the the prize for the lady with the highest score of the day. Sorry Mandy, but at least you didn't have to wear that orange cap!
We departed the farm and headed off to nearby Highbullen Hotel & Country Club, where we were joined by new members Chris and Deborah Batchelor and Ray and Julia, for our lunch. The food was delicious and service first class.
Once again it was also lovely to be joined by Area 22 members Barry & Mandy with their son George and guests
