Past Shoots

This years Shoot took place on Sat 26th July 2014.

Once again we had good weather, people enjoyed sitting out in the sun admiring the fantastic view across Teesdale. We had a new event this year:- Children’s Sports  which went down very well, we had medals for each race !st, 2nd & 3rd and a trophy for the overall winner. We had a tie between Jacob Rayner(9yrs) and Alice Wardle (14 yrs) for the overall winner, so the two decide to go head to head  in a sprint, a close run race but Alice just did pip Jacob.

We had over 130 people shoot the course, who all seemed to enjoy it even though it was a harder course than last year.We would to express our thanks to all the trappers and Markers who helped us on a rather warm long day. Thanks to , Ross Mitchell, Andy Mitchell, David Mitchell, Adam Mitchell for there hard work on Friday helping with the course layout, and thanks to Peter Henderson and Andrew Morrow for the course design, and thanks to Tony Merone safety Officer.
