It’s been a productive morning down at Meary Veg today, with four pairs of hands sawing, nailing, hammering, rolling, and glueing various materials together for our new central shelter’s roof under the watchful eye of foreman Peter Kelly. The hours flew by and everybody escaped (mostly) unscathed despite my first encounter with a nail gun, putting us one step closer to having somewhere new to hide when the weather closes in once summer’s over. Great work by Brian, Will and Peter!
Four hardy souls braved the intermittent (liquid) sunshine today to do some more work on the new shelter by the middle house, which is coming along very nicely now and almost ready for the roof.
We also fitted new doors to one of the sporting traps and readied everything for the coming weekend. It’s going to be a busy Sunday with ABT, DTL and Olympic Skeet on the menu, so get yourselves down early tomorrow and brush up on all-round skills with some open practice – range opens 10:00.
With summer fast approaching we have opened registration for this year’s charity clay target event in aid of Hospice IOM. Once again we’re holding the event on a single day, with a number of start times set aside exclusively for novices.
All Systems Go for Saturday 26 June 2021
Although it’s a team event we encourage single entrants as well as groups, and will be holding a draw on the day to make sure everyone belongs a team. This year’s entry charity donation is £35 and as always includes 50 targets, a full buffet, plus a limited edition commemorative polo shirt.
Places are starting to fill up already so head on over to iomclays.com/hospice and get yourselves registered!
