Cabin Fever Open Sporting Clays @ Underhill
Underhill Rod & Gun Club, Westford, Vermont
Sunny. The temp hit 72 degrees. On and off wind, especially towards the end of the day, but didn't seem to effect the targets, except on a few stations.
Shotgun start. Five fields, three stations on each, various number of machines.
Everyone seemed to be in good humor.
Not a good start. A rather depressive experience on the first field picking up target presentations. I left the first station with two unfired shells and when I did shoot it was just poking at the target as no time to aim. Not good and can't remember ever walking off a stand with unfired shells. Hope the eyes aren't starting to fail.
Unfortunate, as for the most part I enjoyed the rest of the course, seeing targets clearly.
I don't know the cause, but the third rotation had a late start. I was schedule to shoot at 1pm, but not even close. Ended up getting off the course at 4:30pm.
A lunch was available for $7.
The ladies working the desk and kitchen did a great job.
A half dozen shooters from Quebec attended the shoot.
SHOOT VIDEO & RESULTS
The club in the past has not had a permeant sporting clays course. Only setting it up two or three times a year. This year during the warm weather months (weather permitting) sporting clays will be shot each Tuesday from noon-5pm. Non-members more then welcomed.
I switched the photo program that I've used in the past to one that makes viewing photos on a mobile device more user friendly.
