Pull for Your LifeLine Round Two

Izzie O'Riordan -

Last Friday it was time once again for our Clay Pigeon shooting event. Word must have spread about last year because we were fully booked before we knew it! 

This was the second time the event had been held, and following last year’s success, we were hoping for clear skies and smooth journeys on Friday morning.

Despite sending warning emails to all guests before the shoot encouraging them to dress up warm and bring wellies, the skies were blue and the sun shone gloriously throughout the day! 

Once all the shooters had arrived (a mixture of ABTA members, ABTA partners, colleagues and clients), the teams got together for a safety briefing and then it was off to the first stand. This time there were 10 stands we had to shoot from, with each target varying in speed, height and direction. The infamous ‘tower’ stand was the most difficult to manoeuvre. The target shot straight over and behind your head at such a speed, blink and you missed it. Unfortunately I think we had a lot of blinkers as only two shooters managed to get it. 

There was of course a competitive air between teams, but plenty of encouragement too – especially in the two girls’ teams who could not hide their delight at the sight of shattering clays!

When the cartridges were all spent, we made our way to the nearby Duke of Cumberland Arms, a delightful pub, nestled into the West Sussex countryside. Everyone was in high spirits as we sat down to enjoy a delicious two course lunch and the winners for best male shooter (Craig Strong), best female shooter (Nikki Spoor) and best dressed (Matt Purser) were announced. 

A big thank you to all who joined to support ABTA LifeLine. We already have signups for next year so keep a look out for the next ‘Pull for your LifeLine’!

  • It is such a useful information, as every thing is available online, so i would say that online technology is playing a vital role in the universe, as everyone can easily get their assistance through online platforms. Internet has made it easier for credit report agencies to effectively manage their clients’ reports. The consumers are also able to get their reports online and even students can also buy essay online within minutes of making the request compared to the number of days it takes if you request through mail or phone. The best thing about this is that you can get online companies that are willing to extend to you the services free of charge. So it is also the best option for those, who are high school drop out, as they can easily complete their education by going through online platforms.
