Conservatives hold Binley Invitation Clay Shoot
26 Oct 2003
Eight teams of eight guns entered this year's Invitation Clay Shoot at Binley, which was won by the Coronation Arms (a pub in St Mary Bourne), captained by Matt Culley. They beat last year's winners, the Binley Bangers and the Fulham Farmers. Other teams were Richard's Rogues, the Trout Farmers, Binley All Stars, Juniper and Digby's Devils.
The traps at the seven stands were supplied by Lains, members of St Mary Bourne Conservatives provided the lunch and the event was held at the home of Jeff and Jenny Harrison.
Top gun was Phil King, with 70 out of 70.
"This was another successful event superbly organised by Philip Winchcombe. Last year, the wind made it exceptionally difficult to shoot, but this year we could not have had a better day."
"Given the debate within the Conservative Party about the Leadership, there was a good opportunity for to listen to people's views (as much as one can hear anyone's views in the middle of a Clay Pigeon Shoot) Everyone wanted the matter resolved quickly, but I detected support moving away from IDS - althought some thought he did well on Frost in the morning."
£863 was raised for local funds.
