The 8th Sausage Tree Clay Pigeon Shoot on Saturday 27th September was the biggest fund raising day in the history of Sausage Tree raising just over £16,000!
We had a huge turn out this year. 14 teams of very keen but rather mixed ability guns came to shoot a variety of clays and enjoy a lot lager! The latter by the end of the morning proving the more successful! Peter Pitman’s team once again cleaned up, winning both the Top Team and Team Flush competitions. There are now a lot of people trying to source hotshots for their teams in 2016 in the hope of knocking them off the podium.
As usual many of our guns bought their loyal supporters –the children nearly outnumbering the wives this year! The bouncy assault and Malcolm the Magician kept them all happy. The over 10s also got a chance to shoot some clays in the afternoon which was a real highlight for this year and will be a much bigger fixture on the agenda for 2016. The auction was a huge success – Tom T-D totally nailed it and a few unsuspecting bidders! We also had a load of last minute auction lots which really helped boost our final amount. Huge thanks to everyone who donated auction lots and raffle prizes and to all those who bought loads of tickets and bid in the auction. The auction alone raised £9200!
It was an amazingly successful day and that is due to all the wonderful people who made it possible and came in high spirits to support the day. Thank you to you all!
