We have been busy spraying and fertilising on the farm. The oilseed rape is now in full flower. On the heavier land, the rape has definitely suffered from the very wet spring weather we have seen this year. The lighter, more free draining land is all looking good, but where we farm Weald Clay you can really notice the difference. We always get our best yields on the heavier land in drought conditions!.

Our John Deere sprayer broke down this week which was extremely frustrating and delayed us whilst it was being repaired.

Have a good week everyone and we hope to see you next Sunday.

As always thank you for all your support.

A bit of useless information, but we are going to see the new Tina Turner Musical and I am so excited!. Having seen the original Tina Turner on the last two nights before she retired, in my opinion she is “SIMPLY THE BEST!”. She was truly fantastic to watch... love her.

Sorry, but that was a secret that I couldn’t keep to myself. The first night reviews are 5*

It certainly has been dreadful weather over the Easter period. And the weather forecast is further rain for the first half of this week. I feel sorry for the children (And parents!) who are still home from school before the start of the school Summer Term. It has rained virtually every day throughout their school holiday.

We have managed to catch up with the fertilising on the farm, but there is still plenty of spraying left to do as soon as the weather becomes dry enough to travel with the tractors on the land. The ducks are having a great time though!.

As always thank you for all your support and kind words about the shoot today. We feel especially grateful to you all when it is wet weather like it was today.

Spring is nearly here, and we are now busy on the farm. We have been busy fertilising and spraying all the arable crops.

Unfortunately there is a rumour that we are expecting cooler temperatures and possible rain leading up to the Bank Holiday weekend.

Our farm is once again being used as a dumping ground (picture attached showing one of our arable fields). This is what farmers have to put up with on a regular basis. Not only does this disgusting behaviour blight the countryside, but when the crop grows higher it damages our machinery. The problem is getting worse all over the country.



Wishing you all a good week, and we hope to see you Easter Monday.

ALLAN RICHARDS won B MEMBERS with 69, and the winner of C MEMBERS JOHN DEAN who shot 55.

All the shooters who arrived early today, could see that there was rather a lot going on in the entry van!. I was looking after my already unwell husband who had suddenly turned pure white in colour, boiling hot and clammy, was passing out as well as feeling sick.

Incase you were wondering why all this was happening, Steven has the dreaded (Australian?) flu. He had been very ill in the night, and I called 111.

I will not go into detail of the shambolic medical advice and service we experienced, (It was like sitting an exam at school),but all I can say is that I have very fond memories of when you could phone your own Drs Surgery and get direct advice. Steven really should have been resting in bed today, but we didn’t want to let our shooters down. Steven is now resting and a morning call to the Drs surgery is planned if he is not getting better.

Thank you again Kevin for your help, the Diet Coke and toast did the trick!.Talk about me having to multi task this morning, hehe.

NEXT WEEK:- We are at “GATTON BOTTOM”. 100 ENGLISH OPEN CPSA REGISTERED. £100 FIRST IN AA, A, B, C. £50 SECOND IN AA, A, B, C PLUS OTHER CASH PRIZES. PLUS VETERANS, JUNIOR AND LADIES CLASSES. SHOOT STARTS AT 10.00 am LAST ENTRIES 3.00 pm

We hope to see you all again next Sunday. Wishing you all a perfect week.

Gatton Bottom 31st December 2017

Firstly, Steven and I would like to wish all our shooting friends, old and new a ‘VERY HAPPY AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR 2018”.

We both sincerely thank you for all your support throughout the year.

SHOOTER OF THE DAY and HIGH GUN was without doubt KENNY BENNETT who shot an amazing 98/100. Well shot Kenny, I think that all the INTERNATIONAL VETERAN shooters will need to watch out at the European in Italy and the World in France this year. I was really pleased for you, and your “old faithful”gun certainly does the job!.

SECOND place in A CLASS was KENNY WRIGHT who shot a very good 89, followed by ANDY ANDERSON and C. MILES both on 88.

In AA CLASS, PAUL POULTER and RICHARD KING shared First Place having both shot a very good 95. In joint third place was ARGUN ISMET and ANDREW STUBBS on 93.

SIMON BALDWIN won £100 in B CLASS with an excellent 89, well shot Simon. In second place came GLEN GOLDTHORPE who shot 87, followed by RAY BARRY 86.

JOINT WINNER of C CLASS was PAUL FOULSHAM and CRAIG COTTON who both shot a very good 75 and won £75 each. Only one clay behind was one of our members GRAHAM COX 74. Well shot boys, because I know that you were caught in the short period of rain.

LADY HIGH GUN was NICKY GREY who shot a brilliant 89. Good shooting Nicky!.

Winner of the VETERANS CLASS was JEFF DIX who shot a very good 88. Well shot Jeff.

JUNIOR HIGH GUN was BILLY GREENWOOD who shot a good 85.

In the MEMBERS CLASSES, (A MEMBER) ROB TAYLOR won his class having shot 86. ROB STEVENS (Also known as The King !) won (B CLASS) with 84, and ROY EVE won (C CLASS) with 73.

As we start a new year, I would like to remind all shooters about the rule that they must wear shooting glasses please at all our shoots. Christmas time is often when we are always pleased to welcome new shooters that have been shooting elsewhere and may be unaware of our safety glasses policy. Please could I politely remind all shooters that it is essential and paramount to wear safety shooting glasses and hearing protection at every shoot. We sell these glasses for under £8 a pair, therefore there is no excuse for not protecting your sight. You only get one chance to protect your sight. I spend a lot of time every four to five weeks visiting a London eye hospital with a family member. Nearly all the patients are there because they are already partially blind or are going blind. It is an eye opener and very upsetting even 10 years after my first visit.

Nag, nag .... but you must see my point.

NEXT WEEK:- COURT FARM, CHALDON. 100 CPSA REGISTERED £100 FIRST IN EACH CLASS AA, A, B, C £50 SECOND IN AA, A, B, C PLUS OTHER CASH PRIZES. PLUS LADIES, VETERAN AND JUNIOR CLASSES. STARTS AT 10.00 am LAST ENTRIES 2.00 pm.

MEMBERSHIP AVAILABLE AT ONLY £59 per year. ENTITLES YOU TO REDUCED RATE SHOOTING, ADDITIONAL PRIZES AND HELP WITH RENEWALS OF SHOTGUN CERTIFICATES ETC.

Wishing you all, a safe and fun year with lots of shooting
Michelle xx.

FARMING NEWS:-
Nothing much is happening on the farm. All the machinery has been put away for the winter, and the land is far too wet to do any work on the land.

All the crops are looking extremely healthy so far. Of course farming is very unpredictable, and how the crops are going to yield at harvest time is quite another matter!. However, at least they are all looking well established and healthy for the winter.

NEXT WEEK:- We are shooting on SUNDAY 31/12/17 our “NEW YEAR’S EVE” shoot which is back at “GATTON BOTTOM”, REIGATE. We have a 100 ENGLISH SPORTING CPSA REGISTERED shoot for you to enjoy and we hope to see you all before 2018.

Only two more sleeps until CHRISTMAS

May we wish you all “A VERY, MERRY CHRISTMAS”

FROM MICHELLE, STEVEN AND EVERYONE AT HORNE CLAY PIGEON CLUB.

FARMING NEWS:
Once again we have been targeted by the lazy people who blight our country. (Mentioning no names!) It is all clearly on camera and has been presented to the police.

It shows the same 23 year old male driver in a car that the police have established is neither registered, taxed or insured, putting our property into his vehicle seemingly without a care in the world. I do strongly believe that people who have Kleptomania should have their fingers chopped off. This would be far cheaper and more effective than going through the courts and getting a fine which without doubt would never get paid.

Why should all hard working people, put up with these idle thieves, who are simply too lazy to go out to work like everyone else has to.

We are still busy power harrowing, drilling winter wheat and rolling the crop to get a nice firm seedbed. We are also spraying the aphids to stop barley dwarf and Hedge cutting to keep the farm neat and tidy as well as all the other work on the farm. The nights are drawing in, so it is now a race to get everything finished on the land, before the soil becomes cold and too wet to drill.

Thank you so much Ian for the “biggest pumpkin!”, it was gratefully received by the little people!. We have got some very thoughtful and kind shooters who always look after Steven and I.

A big thank you to all our shooters for your support.

We wish you a good week, and hopefully the high winds which are forecasted for tomorrow do not materialise!.

FARMING AND GENERAL GOSSIP!
This lovely spell of dry weather is helping us to complete the winter drilling on the farm. Steven spent the day subsoiling on his John Deere tractor yesterday, followed by Strictly Come Dancing!. I am hooked already, and for fellow" Strictly" fans, I think that you will agree that the standard of dancing is already high.

We have had our fly tipping "friends" on the farm. Every farmer I know is suffering the same problem of poaching and fly tipping on their land. One of my neighbours not only had the blight of tipping, but these unsavoury individuals left the gate open so that all his cattle could get out on to the road .......

We have drilled and rolled 210 acres of winter wheat so far, and the varieties are called "Zyatt" and "Skyfall" which are both bread making varieties. We are now going to drill winter Barley, and the variety is called "Volume".

Most of the field side hedges have been cut, but the roadside is left until all the land work has been completed.

NEXT WEEK:- COURT FARM, CHALDON. 100 CPSA REGISTERED £100 FIRST IN AA, A, B, C £50 SECOND IN AA, A, B, C PLUS CASH TO THIRD PLACE. PLUS LADIES, JUNIOR AND VETERAN CLASSES. ALSO MEMBERS CLASSES A, B, C. We hope to see you all again next Sunday. Shoot starts at 10.00am and last entries are 2.00pm.

BRADLEY BALLANTYNE 97
JOHN TURK 97
ADRIAN SMITH 96

I personally think that the standard of the very best junior shooters in this country is as high as it has ever been. Some of these shooters are going to be world class, because they have the correct temperament to keep progressing into the senior class.

There are also some brilliant VETERAN shooters, such as GEOFF EVANS and JEFF DIX. GEOFF shot 95 today and JEFF shot 89. Good shooting boys!.

LADY HIGH GUN,NORMA CURTIS always shoots well, and another lady shooter to mention today is JENNIFER BAKER.

Court Farm 6th August 2017

We all enjoyed a warm and sunny summers day at "Court Farm" today.
There were a few "SHOOTERS OF THE DAY" for different reasons. THE TOP SHOOTERS AND HIGH GUNS OF THE DAY, were PAUL JOLLY, ADAM JONES AND JACK BUDD who all shot an excellent 93.
Another shooter of the day was lovely junior KAI McGRATH who  is only 10. Kai won the Junior Class, well done Kai x. Hopefully, young shooters like Kai, will educate non shooters, of the benefits of the sport of clay pigeon shooting. To shoot this well at 10 years of age requires a lot of self discipline and is very character building. Clay pigeon shooting is a wonderful sport, it does not matter if you are 10 or in your 80's. Both ages won prizes today, and both winners are true ambassadors for the sport.

In the A CLASS, PAUL JOLLY won £100 having shot 93, and only one clay behind was ADE ENGLISH on 92. In third place came DEAN BRIEN on 91.
In A CLASS ADAM JONES and JACK BUDD both shot 93 and shared £150. In third place came BRADLEY BALLANTYNE who shot a very good 91 with a different gun!.

In B CLASS GARY HUME shot an excellent 90, and won £100.
In second place, and only one clay behind came PETER SQUIRES and NICK DEVONSHIRE who both shot and excellent 89.

SIMON LILLEYWHITE won C CLASS having shot a very good 81.
Well shot Simon, you have won £100. In second place came one of our members, PHIL STOCKER having shot a very good 80.
I would love to think that my family will be able to shoot like you do PHIL when they reach your "young" age. Brilliant shooting PHIL, I was so pleased for you. In third place came BARRY GREATOREX who shot 79.

LADY HIGH GUN was NORMA CURTIS who shot an excellent 80.
Good shooting Norma. Runner up was LIZ SALMON who shot a very good 77.

One of our youngest members KAI won the Junior Class, having shot 46 ;Not bad shooting from a very mature 10 year old.

WINNER of A MEMBERS was PETER ROWE who shot an excellent 90. WINNER OF B MEMBERS was ROB STEVENS who shot a very good 82, and GRAHAM SHRUBB won C MEMBERS with a very good 78.

Thank you to both our regular and new shooters who supported our shoot today. It was a lovely August day, and a sincere thank you for all your kind feedback.

Harvest has slowed down due to the annoying, unpredictable weather which we saw throughout the whole of last week. All the farmers will be starting to worry about the milling quality of their wheat. The wet weather and delay in combining, means that we are all getting a bit concerned about the final quality of our corn.

DUCKS:-
I am looking to buy about 12 ducks. Does anyone have any healthy ducks for sale please?.
We have a good home waiting for them!.

NEXT SHOOT:-
SUNDAY 13th AUGUST. GATTON BOTTOM SHOOTING GROUND.
100 CPSA REGISTERED SHOOT.
We hope to see you all again in seven sleeps
The shoot starts at 10.00 am and the last entries are 3.00 pm.
All shooters are welcome.


Gatton Bottom 30th July 2017

"SHOOTERS OF THE DAY" were EDWARD LOVERIDGE, GEORGE DIGWEED MBE and CHERYL HALL.

TED LOVERIDGE was overall "HIGH GUN"on the day with an excellent 97. Well shot Ted, it was a testing shoot today.

GEORGE DIGWEED MBE shot a very good 96, and top Lady Shooter CHERYL HALL shot a fabulous 95. Well shot Cheryl, awesome shooting.

A big thank you to all our shooters today. I was unsure how many shooters would be penned into their houses, due to the massive bike ride that closed off many roads in Surrey. But you all managed to escape and find alternative routes!.

The weather was very kind to us, and it kept dry and mostly sunny all day. It has been a frustrating week on the farm. The combine has stood still all week, and not even the lime has been spread.

The weather forecast for the week is not looking particularly favourable for combining, and I cannot see the wheat being cut for at least a week?!.

All the Barley and Rape has been cut thankfully, therefore the lorries have been busy all week clearing the store ready for the next wheat crop. We urgently need another grain store, but for some ridiculous reason the planners refused our application under permitted development, therefore we will be putting in for full planning ready for next harvest.

The planning system in our country is a complete nonsense, and it seems that anyone who is working hard to make a living and not live off the rest of society, has the largest obstacles in the way, With today's large machinery, grain stores have to be high enough for the large grain trailers to tip up without taking the roof off!. Due to our "greening" rules, we also have to grow a larger variety of crops, and this has added to the need for additional storage.

NEXT WEEK:- We are at COURT FARM, CHALDON. 100 ENGLISH OPEN SPORTING. We hope to see you all.

START TIME 10.00am LAST ENTRIES 2.00 pm

Wishing you all a good week, from everyone at HORNE CLAY PIGEON CLUB (Clay & Country Sports UK).

Winners in the MEMBERS CLASSES, were BOB TAYLOR and PETER ROWE who both shot a very good 85. JOHN CHAFFE won the B MEMBERS and ALAN WHIBDEN won the C MEMBERS.

Having just returned from the 39th WORLD FITASC SPORTING CHAMPIONSHIPS at GALGAMACSA IN HUNGARY, I would just like to mention what an amazingly good shoot it was. The Hungarian government partially sponsored this fabulous shoot, and the Hungarians can quite rightly be very proud of what must be one of the most organised and prestigious events that FITASC shooters from all around the world have attended. The event was jointly organised between the Hungarian Federation and the PILIS FOREST MANAGEMENT CO; ( GODOLLO FORESTRY).

Having already hosted an equally fabulous EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIP in 2015, we were not disappointed. There were many leading manufacturers attending the championship. Names such as Corsivia, Hull, Beretta, Browning, Perazzi, Gamebore, Promatic, Castellani, plus many more big names were all in attendance to greet the shooters and dealers alike. (Thank you Robert for looking after Steven and I. The supply of chilled water kept us alive!) The weather was hot,hot,hot, about 33 C every day.

Ben Khor

The opening ceremony was held at the Lazar Equestrian Park, which is situated about 35 km from Budapest. The equestrian centre is owned by the coach driving world champions Vilmos and Zoltan Lazar. The Hungarian hospitality was simply fantastic. Not only did they provide all the catering free of charge to all the shooters, referees and guests attending the World Championships, but we were lucky enough to be entertained by a spectacular horse show. I was literally on the edge of my seat, watching the speed of these horses and carriages galloping around the arena, leaning at a great angle around every corner.

The targets were both fair and testing, and every layout had to be "worked at".

Ben Khor

The talking point of the shoot was the "Beretta" layout. Steven shot this layout on day 2, and managed an excellent 20. It was a good day at the office, because Steven had already shot a very good 21 on the "Gamebore" layout. Many shooters ruined their final score by getting an extremely low score on the Beretta Towers!. Everyone was talking about the dreaded, unimaginably difficult Beretta Towers!.

Ben Khor

We were staying in a "Fawlty Towers" hotel. I could right an essay about our dreadful hotel called "Vis Vitalis Medical Wellness Hotel". Why it was called a wellness hotel, I am still in a state of confusion. But I am guessing it is because the hotel is next to a chemist?!. I had to ask for a loo roll every day, and I did not even have any pillowcases!. I paid €160 per night for our room, therefore I was expecting basic facilities, plus more. There was no menu what so ever, and it was not until we sat down at the table, did we find out just what we were eating that night.

Each and every evening it was a soup, followed by a stew; Just what we needed in such extreme temperatures.

We did not even know what price we were paying for the "Have what you are given meal!." The hotel even weighed my tonic water after the Umm, barman, receptionist, whatever, had poured from a large size supermarket bottle. No, I am not exaggerating!. But, we had a wonderful time, and the whole Hungary experience was fabulous. We had stayed in Budapest two years prior to this event, and the food at "The Four Seasons" was first class. It was great fun and we would definitely recommend Hungary and Budapest as a short break holiday.

Combining is progressing well. 300 acres of winter Barley has been cut. We have nearly finished the Oilseed Rape, and the muck is being spread on the fields, followed by the lime. Everyone is working hard to make the most of the hot weather, there is a rumour that thunder storms are not too far away ......

NEXT WEEK:- We are at COURT FARM. 100 OPEN SPORTING.

10.00 am LAST ENTRIES 2.00 pm. www.clayandcountry.com and click on to the FIXTURES for directions to the shoot.

We wish you all an enjoyable week....

Gatton Bottom 2nd July 2017

Steven had set up a testing shoot today at "GATTON BOTTOM", and there really was some excellent shooting. We were also blessed with a wonderful summer's day, which I was totally unaware of, until I stepped out of the entry van at 4.00 pm; I need a sun roof to grasp a tiny bit of Vitamin D!.

Thank you all for your support today, Steven and I really appreciate all your appreciation and kind words.

It is all starting to happen on the farm; I had a shock to learn that both the oilseed rape and the barley are almost ready to combine!. The mad time of the year has started; we always hope that we can get all the crops in before the nights pull in etc.

We look forward to seeing you all again at our next shoot.

Have a wonderful week.

Court Farm 18th June 2017

It was a scorching hot "Fathers Day", and the heat tested even the most serious of sun worshippers!. Thank you to all the shooters for your support, I know that with London to Brighton cyclists everywhere and the immense heat, a deck chair in the garden with a glass of something cold may have seemed slightly more appealing!

"SHOOTER OF THE DAY"was without doubt HENRY ARNOLD who shot a brilliant 93. Excellent shooting Henry. Having just returned from "The European FITASC Championships", Steven had set a rather testing course, and every target had to be respected to get a good score, especially in the heat!.

My poor Steven nearly had his hand amputated by a mallet whist confidently holding a post for another member of staff!. And just before the shoot started, a scorer phoned in with a headache! etc ......

But the show went on; With help and support from our wonderful scorers and friends, no one noticed the dramas going on behind the scenes. You know who you are, and we want to thank you for all your help. Your loyal support meant that Steven and I could make the shoot possible today and everything ran smoothly.

Gatton Bottom 29th May 2017

After a noisy night of thunder, lightning and heavy rain, the weather was very kind to us today, which is always a bonus whenever the UK has a Bank Holiday!.

The arable crops and the grass fields desperately need rain, but hopefully next Sunday will be dry and sunny for us all!. We are hoping to renew some fencing on one of the farms this week, together with other general farm maintenance. Work never stops on the farm and there is never a dull moment!. I try and remind myself that this is better than being bored. The amount of paperwork involved with everything you do these days seems to get worse. I know for example tree surgeons that have been climbing trees safely and responsibly for over 30 years, but now the same tree surgeons have to show bits of paper to their employers to enable them to keep their jobs. Many jobs now involve having a piece of paper to say that the applicant has had endless experience on paper, but when there is no practical experience to go with the paper .... not so good!.

Michelle, Steven and the rest of the team.

Any new shooters, please log onto www.clayandcountry.com for directions to the shooting ground.

So many people seem to be suffering from colds, flu, chest infections. To all the shooters who have unfortunately been unwell over Christmas and the New Year, we wish you a speedy recovery. The hospitals are having great difficulty coping with the extra patients which are having breathing difficulties due to the persistent cough etc that seems to be prevalent.

Please don't forget that our cartridges are always keenly priced. Why travel, when you can get your shooting and cartridges door to door!.

We are thinking about purchasing some more HORNE CLAY PIGEON CAPS, please let me know if you would like one.

Have a great week, and we hope to see you soon.

Michelle
