First Shooting Competition

On Sunday 18th 12 members took part in our first ever Shooting Competition or Tir de Précision.

Over 4 distances, 6,7,8 and 9m and 5 disciplines the maximum score is 100. Dylan Rocher was 2018 World Champion shooter with a score of 57.

We played over 6,7 and 8m so the possible maximum score was 75
The top three members were Pete scoring 6, Brendan with 5 and Margaret with 4! Several players did not bother the judge at all!
Everyone enjoyed the experience (I think) and we will repeat the competition regularly now we’ve taken the plunge. Maybe a monthly shooting competition? Food for thought!
One thing our results show very clearly is that we all need to practice shooting a lot more. When we get our Monday training sessions back on track we can concentrate on this discipline.
Here’s Pete with his gold Medal

Team Event at Stockton in October

The Greenheads took part in the Northern Petanque Open Team event of 10 very very good teams at Stockton Fox Sun 21st Oct 2018.
The matches were 3 doubles in the morning followed by 2 triples in the afternoon.
The scoring system was:-
Win by 13-6 or more = 2 points
Win by 13-5 or less   = 4 points
Win by 13-0               = 6 points
In Round 1 Rita & Robin managed an excellent result 13 – 3 victory for 4 points
Elizabeth & Brendan and Roy & Christine lost their matches.
In Round 2 we all lost & sat down & collectively said “Oh Bugger”
After the Captain’s inspirational team talk all pairings WON for 2 points each team.
Sadly the story goes down hill from there & neither of the triples could manage a win in the final games.
However a good time was had by Greenheads, played mostly in very good friendly company.
The positive is that we performed better the last year

Callum-ity

Tomorrows Mixed Pairs Open event is cancelled. Of our 10 lanes only 3 are without lying water and forecast is for more rain particularly tomorrow morning. So unfortunately we have no choice. I doubt if it can be rearranged as autumn weather isn’t likely to improve.
