Four of our members travelled down to Colchester to compete in the East Anglian Open organised by Iceni Marksmen ARC. Broadlands had a good showing in the placings so congratulations to Simon Ayers achieving second place in AA grade, Ed Cable gaining third place in A grade and Kathy Johnson coming second in B grade. A superb course in the woods with a tricky wind made for interesting shooting. As a side note all proceeds were donated to the charity of choice of Iceni founder member Ron Crawford who sadly passed away recently.
Lets have a good turnout for the final summer series shoot to be held on 13th September. Trophys will be awarded to the winning team at our annual dinner in February. We will be having a BBQ after the shoot so be prepared for Rogers cooking skills! Usual fare of burgers, sausages, bacon, egg and maybe some cake if you are good! Coffee and tea also available. Family members are welcome to come along and maybe have a go on the practice range if this air rifle lark is new to them. Remember — NO CHARGE its part of your membership fee.
