Firstly, Steven and I would like to say a massive thank you to both Paul and Ady for all their hard work today.

It was a massive challenge to set up the shoot today in the pouring rain. The clearing up at the end of the day was equally challenging and we are so grateful to you both for all your help.

Despite the torrential rain the shoot was ready to start on time and fortunately it was predominantly dry throughout the hours of the actual shoot.

We would also like to thank each and every one of our loyal shooters who made all the hard work worthwhile by ignoring the totally grim weather forecast and venturing out to support us.

Last but not least we would like to thank all the scorers ... without you there would be no shoot. I would also like to mention how lovely it was to see the shooters who had travelled from NORWAY to shoot with us in the UK. We hope that you had a safe journey home this evening.

FARMING NEWS:- We have finished combining and we have drilled 300 acres of oilseed rape and the crop is just emerging.

We are now hedgecutting and preparing all the arable land ready to drill both winter wheat and winter barley.

We had uninvited “visitors” again last night. They cut the locks on the field gates and drove their FWD vehicle all over our tender new rape crops. The police describe this criminal activity as hare coursing. The truth is ... they are using shotguns, firearms, knives and hunting dogs to kill deer, rabbits and any other animal they can see. Neighbouring farmers are seeing dead badgers on their fields. This illegal activity is happening all over the country and we need more (Police Constables) that are actually able to catch and arrest these criminals. Interestingly, I once showed photos of the carnage that was left on one of the footpaths in one of our fields to the Godstone branch of the RSPCA. They did not even make an effort to reply, let alone try to help ... it is debatable if money raised to fund the RSPCA is actually going to the right causes?. The photos that I showed them was of animals killed in the worst possible way ... I was at the very least expecting a quick phone call or email.

“SHOOTER OF THE DAY” today was without any doubt GEORGE DIGWEED MBE who shot a brilliant 99/100 over a testing course. George straight stands 7 and 8 which were very tricky targets.

Stand 7 was a long quartering left to right off the tower, followed by a right to left fast low target. Stand 8 was a full left to right long crosser, followed by a right to left high looper. These two stands caught most shooters out throughout the day... The multi World Champion straighted both of these stands; The only bird that George missed was his very last target on stand 1 ( A quartering going away target).

Brilliant shooting George; All the best for Hungary (The World Compak)in Galgamacsa near Budapest.

FARMING NEWS:- All the oilseed rape and the winter barley has been combined and we are now combining winter wheat. Unfortunately this coming week’s weather forecast is not looking good for combining. We have also been busy cultivating and rolling the land... Certainly a very busy time of the year!.

I have just ordered a very comfortable new duck house for our one remaining duck. If anyone knows where I can buy some more ducks please let me know. I would prefer either ducks which cannot fly or alternatively ducks which have had their wings clipped.

FARMING NEWS:
All the Barley has been cut and we are now well into the oilseed rape. The recent rain has slowed things down but they talk of a heatwave next week, therefore hopefully we will be once again flat out combining. There is never a dull moment on the farm, but Steven and I love farming and in our minds there is no better way of life. It is hard work but it is wonderful to look out of the window and see a constantly different view as the crops change throughout the year. I hope that young people continue to consider farming as a career ... sadly small family farms are disappearing, but there are many ways to make a living from the land as long as you are willing to work hard and enjoy outside work.... And to be totally honest: These days unfortunately there is a lot of record keeping and paperwork!.


NORTH DOWNS (CORSIVIA) CHAMPIONSHIP 14th July 2019

HORNE CLAY PIGEON CLUB (CLAY & COUNTRY SPORTS UK) held a special event to host not only our regular and loyal shooters but also the many overseas competitors that had just finished shooting THE WORLD FITASC at Churchill’s. Having attended the event at Churchill’s where we met old and new friends from all over the world, it was good to say our last goodbyes to the shooters who were travelling home last night or this morning.

The overall HIGH GUN prize of £200 was shared by two top International shooters from Sweden PATRICK NILSSON and JIM FORSBERG who both shot an excellent 96/100. Great shooting from you both. (Both shooters were in the SWEDISH FITASC TEAM at the World FITASC Championships)

I do apologise for the unusually late write up which is normally posted every Sunday evening, but with harvesting also in progress ... cutting winter barley then moving on to oilseed rape there is not a dull moment at present!. Our normally trusty Claas combine is at present being repaired... the engineers have been out all day and I dread the cost involved when the invoice is received!.

The land is already being cultivated to encourage any black grass to germinate. I will continue to update those of you who always enjoy hearing about the ups and downs of farming next week We appreciate your interest and it is particularly rewarding to educate our younger members of society about “where their food comes from”.

NEXT WEEK... We are back at “COURT FARM SHOOTING GROUND”, CHALDON, SURREY. 100 CPSA REGISTERED ENGLISH SPORTING EVENT £100 FIRST IN AA, A, B, C £50 SECOND AA, A, B, C PLUS LADIES, VETERAN, JUNIOR AND MEMBERS CLASSES. (ALL SHOOTERS ARE WELCOME).
