We had another good day with the weather once again being kind to us, we had over 130 people shoot the course and yet again nobody scored a full house. The best score on the day was 49/50 so some good testing targets we seen, and some good shooting. We had our annual raffle with over 60 prizes, and silent auction witch had 24 items in it. The children’s sports where also well supported with 1st, 2nd and 3rd places all getting medals in each age group as well a trophy for the overall winner to keep. There was also three scrap books on show with newspaper cuttings and letters from people and groups who have received donations from the shoot over the years. We would also like to thank the people who sponsored each stand yet again these where:- Alston Road Garage, Middleton Forge Ltd, Middleton Care Ltd, Henderson & Mitchell Construction Ltd, McFarlane Family Butchers, and Mrs C Bell Cronkley Farm
