Clay Pigeon Shooting
In late May the Surrey Region once again held its Clay Pigeon Day at on the Gosterwood Estate just outside Dorking. It was an early start, for the bacon and sausage baps, and a gloriously sunny day – and there weren’t many of those.
There was a record turnout of 94 shooters, including many lady guns, all of whom had a great day out. The morning was devoted to a sixty-clay shooting match, roaming around the ten different stands in the woods, each with an instructor to give some useful hints and tips.
The morning is followed by the now traditional lunch at Bill Bryce’s Schoolhouse Restaurant, just round the corner in Ockley. Starting with the a seafood platter and then the weight-watcher’s steak and kidney pudding. Yes, pudding. Unbelievably good.
The incomparable Tony Vickers conducted auction and we were then entertained with a few arias from Andy Searle, who runs the singing waiter company, Encore Management.
The Lord’s Taverners minibus from the Philip Southcote School in Addlestone was on display to show the guests what it’s all about and they didn’t disappoint.
People were still outside the restaurant, in the sunshine at six o’clock, so we think they had a good time.
