Family Morning and BBQ Fun, AGM & Prizes

 Alan Downer and Clive Gordon receive their trophy from Lynette Whitehead

A Family Morning was held on Sunday 9th July where existing members could bring family members and friends along to try out shooting for supervised sessions. This was attended by several juniors as well who were first in line for the BBQ after a busy morning! After the BBQ, the AGM was held with reports from the discipline captains, the Secretary and the Treasurer followed by the Prize giving. Jeanette made an excellent job of standing in for Martin with Lynette who presented the trophies. One key outcome from the AGM was that prize giving will be held in early January at the Wappenshaw event, i.e. immediately after the year end rather than around 6 months later.

Bookham RC have retained the Browne Martin Cup after a superb shoot at the Lord Roberts Range at Bisley. The Browne Martin is a competition for clubs from the Home counties, and consists of an initial stage for teams of five shooting two cards each at 25 yards at their home range. Then the top eight teams compete shoulder to shoulder at Bisley on a knockout basis for the trophy.

In the quarter final versus Ashford RC, Bookham scored 979 points out of a possible 1000 against Ashford's total of 942. In the semi final versus Surbiton Postal RC,  Bookham scored 982 against Surbiton's 963, so going through to the final versus Colchester RC.

The final is always a more tense affair with nerves playing a big part, however, Bookham showed what a good team they are by only dropping three points on the first target and then finishing with the best score of the day with 986 out of a 1000 against Colchester's score of 975.
