New Cali V Deccy Derby
by admin · March 18, 2015
New Caledonian ARC and Dechmont ARPC got together this year to do a wee local derby with the goal of bringing new shooters into the sport and dusting the cobwebs from the hibernating HFT teams from both sides.
Round 1 took place on the the 8th of March in quite possibly the worst conditions you could ask for with a good blustery wind and rain, hail and snow. Not a bad turn out considering the weather, but the craic and the hot pie and beans after the shoot warmed the cockles.
After no .22 shooter was available from the Deccy squad, some dubious counting resulted in a 4.5 point lead to the Dechmont after Round 1
Round 2 was at New Cali in a zero wind day.
Luckily enough the new cali course setters prepared for this by firing in a very challenging course.
Some great results posted in by the new comers, but alas the Dechmont managed to sneak a 1 point lead, giving victory in the derby by 5.5 points.
The derby was a success and all participants enjoyed it.
Roll on next year for the re-run and see how that tuns out.
The happy Deccy Squad
