Ardee Shooting Club would like to congratulate Ross Keegan on winning the Junior section of the 2013 CSI League. Ross is one of the newest members to our Club and despite his young age is an exceptional shot and will be a great asset to the Club.
Ross is part of a large number of former Duleek members that decided to join our Club recently and I and the rest of the Club would like to take this opportunity in welcoming all our new members.
Last Sunday was the start of the Team League. As nearly all the teams had at least one person missing and unfortunately for Maurice in the Battues team he was pretty lonely as he was the only member of his team to turn up. We have decided to use the best three scores out of the each team on the day.
This should ensure that whichever team you are on still has a fighting chance if someone does not turn up. Follow the link below to see this weeks scores.
It’s that time of year again, to start the Winter Team League. All those that have agreed to participate have been divided into 5 teams by Gerry. The first shoot is this Sunday (15th) starting at 10.30am and everybody should have received a text message from Dennis informing you of your team mates.
A full list of teams and participants are attached.
After 16 weeks we finally have come to the end of our first Summer League in the new grounds. I hope all will agree it has been a great success. I would like to thank both Jimmy and Gerry for the great variation in targets throughout the league and for all the club members that helped out with tidying up the course each week.
As was predicted last week Jimmy secured High Gun. First in A class was Thomas Lennon, in B class was Connor Duggan, in C class following a shoot off between Simon Lucas and Noreen Walsh – Simon won by one bird. For the full list of all class winners please follow the link below. A selection of photographs are also available by following the link below.
Just to inform you all if you don’t know already that the Club had applied to An Bord Pleanala to appeal the decision made by the Louth Planning Department to deny us permission to shoot on Sundays.
I would like to inform you all that we have been successful in our appeal and have been granted permission to hold shoots on Sundays. This should really secure the Clubs future in its current location as doubt had been cast over the suitability of the location if we were denied Sunday shooting.
On behalf of the Club we would like to thank the committee for the pursuit of the appeal and its subsequent outcome. A lot of work went on in the background that us ordinary club members did not see.
Due to a technical error the scores from last week were not posted (I forgot!). I have corrected this mistake and both weeks scores are included in this update.
The weather over the last few weeks has been exceptional and so has been the shoot layout. It has been a real pleasure shooting in the sunshine. Whether it helps with the scores or not you feel better after it. Score attached below.
