Good turnout today with 51 shooters and perfect weather.  Congratulations to John Mitchell who was top gun with 52.  Most shooters today shot 50% or more so a very fair layout.  Well done Jeff!!

19th March 2017

Pretty challenging shoot this morning – made harder by the wind! Notwithstanding the conditions – there were some pretty good scores – with Derek Street leading the way with an impressive 75! The presidents cup was won by our resident chef – Glyn! Glyn shot a very good 74 which combined with his handicap gave him a total score of 89! Really nicely shot – I knew he’d been sandbagging! 😉

Don’t forget that its the AGM before the next shoot – there are places on the committee available – so please let Simon know if you would like to stand.

Thanks to everyone who turned up early this morning to set-up – was much appreciated!!

Glyn collecting his trophy from club President – Micky Cox! Well shot!

5th March 2017

Reckon the threat of rain kept some of the fair weather shooters away this morning – you know who you are! 🙂 Those who braved the elements were rewarded with some pretty decent weather and a great mornings shooting.

Today was the first leg of our annual competition with Grazeley. Having been hammered for the last few years – we were hopeful of reversing the trend with a host of new members. The results did not disappoint. Depsite Tim top scoring with an impressive 54 (still awaiting results from the urine test) – Hanson came through with a 33 clay victory. Well shot all round!

Thanks to those who turned up early to help set-up. Much appreciated!

Next Hanson shoot is the 100 bird presidents cup… hope to see you there!

Well shot Hanson – suspect we will have our work cut out for us in the next leg!

19th February 2017

Updating the site this week from the Big Apple – so apologies for the slight delay! Sounds like a good mornings shooting by all accounts. Layout courtesy of Ryan Murphy… his first for the club. Great score from Paul on what looks to have been a challenging layout!

5th February 2017

A well attended shoot this morning saw Robin Gibbs walk away with the high gun after a very good 47 on a day when many of us struggled! The handicap was won by Mick Cox after a fantastic score of 38 – which coupled with his handicap gave him a total of 54! Really well shot Mick – well deserved!! Not going to comment on the fact that Mick also set the course! 😉 See you all soon!
* Insufficient club shoots – handicap awarded after three shoots in membership year.
Mick collecting his prize from Dave Martin! Really nicely shot mate!

22nd January 2017

Well… that was distinctly chilly! 🙂 Despite the fact that it was -5 when we arrived this morning we managed to avoid frostbite and put a layout together! 🙂 A really good turn out today, with 63 shooters at the ground – a new club record! Some very good scores – with Keith Collier leading the charge with an excellent 59! Very nicely shot!

Quick reminder on behalf of the committee. No pump action shotguns at the site please. Guns to be carried in slips when not in use and flags to be used in semi-autos.

Note: Given the numbers in recent weeks – people wishing to shoot in a particular squad to be booked in by 9.30 going forward with everyone else booked in by 9.45 please. Should enable us to start promptly.  Thanks and see you all soon!

8th January 2017 – Happy New Year!

First Hanson shoot of the New year! Slight delay in posting the scores owing to the fact that I’m sat on an island in the middle of the Philippines! Internet speed is not the greatest – but there are other compensations! 🙂 Looks like the tower proved tricky for a number of shooters on Sunday! Well shot Derek, Dean and John… see you all at the next shoot!

18th December – Christmas Shoot

Great turn out today – 60 shooters at the ground! Clearly a free shoot is the way to bring out the crowds! 🙂 In any event it was a good layout that saw some decent scores. Dean Gibbs top scored with 55 – but many of our regular shooters put in decent totals today! In total, 20 prizes awarded to Hanson members. Thought the exploding clays were great – went off like canons! Have a fantastic Christmas and see you in the New Year!

Next shoot is at Grazeley
– 70 birds on the 1st January. Back at Hanson on the 8th…

4th December Handicap Shoot

A good turn out today – despite the fact it was a tad chillly! A great layout courtesy of Derek Street saw some mixed scores with most struggling on at least one stand. Dean Gibbs shot a great 53, whilst the handicap was won by Tony Franks! Becoming a habit Tony – well done! Hanson high gun was won by yours trully – must be nearly Christmas! 🙂

The next shoot will be the Christmas shoot on the 18th. Here’s what you need to know:

  • It’s FREE to members of Hanson and Grazeley
  • All shooters to bring a prize for the raffle (bottle of wine, decent box of chocolates etc) – all funds raised go to the club
  • It’s a handcap shoot
  • Hanson have 20 prizes this year for the top 20 handicap scores
    (1-5 roast beef, 5-10 pork, 10-15 gammon, 15-20 four beers)
  • As a bit of fun we have an ‘explosive’ stand! Hit an ‘exploding’ clay and win a prize
  • The treasurer is buying first round at the pub after the shoot

Hope to see you all there!

Tony collects his prize from Dave Martin. Well shot Tony – well deserved!

A very serious looking JD collects the Hanson/Grazeley trophy on behalf of the club.

Look after the trophy for us – we want it back next year!

20th November

Great to see so many of you at the shoot today despite the weather! In the end we got away with it – not too cold or wet in the end! Sun shines on the righteous – or something like that! 😉

Not long until the Christmas shoot! 5 groups this year – so make sure you have at least three shoots under your belt this year to qualify…  Still places available for lunch on the 18th. Remember to bring your form and deposit to the next shoot.

6th November – Competition Vs Grazeley

A close run thing today. Grazeley beat Hanson by a single clay! However, Hanson had a tiny deficit of 67 going into the competition! So accross the two legs Hanson lost by the narrowest of margins – what’s 68 clays between friends! 🙂 Well shot Tim Evans who was top gun on the day with a 52!

In addition, Richard Hall beat yours truly in the shoot off making him the overall winner of last weeks handicap! Well shot Richard!

Dont forget – it’s the Christmas handicap shoot on the 18th December. For those of you not familiar with the format – we shoot in three groups (based on averages) with prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in each group. In addition – we run a raffle – each member to bring a prize please (typically a bottle of wine or similar). For those that fancy it we are having lunch and a beer at the Fox and Hounds afterwards – see either the blog page or David M’s mail for details. See you all soon!

Well shot Grazeley – although much closer this leg!
Richard looks deeply uncomfortable! 🙂 Anyone would have thought I’d just asked to marry his daughter! Well shot nonetheless!

23rd October – Handicap Shoot

Another great turn out today and some pretty decent weather after a misty start! High gun went to Richard Hall with an excellent 52! The honours were shared on the handicap after yours trully equalled Richard’s handicap score of 59. We will hold a shoot off at the next Hanson shoot – in the meantime the prize is sitting in Paul Cooke’s freezer!
Long Overdue

Finally awarded Tony his well deserved memorial shield today! Apologies for delay!

Well shot Richard! 52 takes the prize for the high gun!

9th October

Few issues with the traps today – but great morning for shooting! Well shot Paul – great score! Clearly Derek’s coaching has made a difference! 🙂

25th September

Great turn out today – with 53 shooters at the ground! Derek Street put in an excellent 56! Well shot!

Don’t forget next Saturday we are shooting from 11:00 – 16:00. Compaq, sporting layout and pool shoot. All intended to generate funds for the club! Bring your freinds – should be something for everybody! ‘Have a go stand’ for those new to the sport…

Gun of the week!

Great gun! I couldn’t shoot it for toffee (no change there) – but good fun none the less!

11th September

A well attended handicap shoot in the sun this morning! Some decent scores today on a good layout – thanks Dave Martin! John Mitchell top scored with a very good 52! Nicely shot! The handicap was won by yours trully – which just goes to show that every dog has his day!
Reminder that to qualify for a handicap – members must have shot three rounds in the membership year.

28th August

We tried something a little different today – 60 birds over 7 stands. Intention was to reduce waiting time on the stands given the number of shooters we’ve had in recent weeks. Thought it worked pretty well. Some decent scores today – well shot Tim – an impressive total of 50.

We also managed to award James his most improved trophy – he hasn’t been down for a while and had to bow out early today to attend an emregency call. Nonetheless he still managed to find 30 seconds for a suitably smug photo! 🙂

See you all soon!

Most Improved shot 2015-16: James Mead

14th August

Really decent turn out today! Great to see so many new faces! Shooters were greeted with a pretty taxing layout! For those new to the club – don’t be discouraged – that was definitely one of our more challenging shoots! Well shot Graham… great score! Hope to see you all again soon…

31st July

Memorial Charity Shoot

Okay – Mea Culpa!! That means – I stuffed up! I had, as someone pointed, out worked out the handicaps based on 60 birds – given that it was a 100 bird competition – it does makes a difference!! Good news is that Derek still won the High Gun with an impressive score of 91! However, it means that the winner of the handicap shoot is none other than our resident chef – Tony Franks! Tony will receive his trophy once we get it back from its’ previous holder! In the interim – Tony has significant bragging rights (can imagine that Glyn will be particularly chuffed for you mate)! Well done to both shooters!!
Photo of Tony with cup coming soon!

3rd July 2016

Good turn out today and finally some decent weather! Layout looked pretty straightforward… but just shows – still need to concentrate!

19th June 2016

Great handicap shoot today! Well done to our winner Darren Andrews! Congrats also go to Derek Street who won the Hanson high gun! You may also remember that Derek was the overall Hanson High Gun 2015-16. We finally awarded him his trophy today – see the ‘news page’ to see Derek looking suitably smug! We also should mention John Mitchell from our sister club who put in an impressive 53 today – nicely done!
* New members to the club. Welcome to Hanson! We’ll get you sorted with a handicap as soon as you have shot three rounds as a member…

Handicap Shoot Results 22nd November

A well attended shoot saw Derek Street win both the high gun and the handicap – despite shooting off scratch! Well done Derek and congratulations to the raft of shooters who came second… a very close competition!

For the eagle-eyed amongst you, you may notice that the handicaps below were slightly lower than billed. This was the result of an adjustment to the averages to reflect the fact that the shoot on 7th June was a 70 bird – not a 60 bird!
