Masonic Clay Club takes the “Light Blue Club” Clay busting.
C & W Masonic Clay Club invited the South Westmorland Group, Light Blue Club for a day out Clay Busting.
The Light Blue Club brings together the junior members in our group every couple of months, keeping them in touch with other junior Masons from different Lodges. The Club is headed up by Peter Graveson. After many discussions with Peter about the Club, I as the Chair of the C&W Masonic Clay Club, thought it would be a great idea to take them Clay shooting, so I approached, the C & W Masonic Clay Club committee members to see if they would sponsor the day to the sum of £260 from club funds, they were all in agreement.
So at 10am on Saturday 4th May, we all met at Crabtree Farm Clay Shoot, nr Carnforth for what would turn out to be a fantastic day out. On the day the sun shone bright, and with a gusty wind made the Clays jump around a bit.
12 Light Blue Club members turned up along with 4 Ladies, who also wanted to shoot. !!. . They were split up between our Clay Club Members to give them guidance during the day; I took the girls myself, as I had borrowed a lighter Gun for them. The C & W Masonic Clay Club would pay for 25 cartridges and Clays, supply guns and teach them how to shoot,
The girls were mustard, none having shot before, but were really focused and all hit a Clay on their first or second Shot, we moved around 5 Clay layout and all the girls bust more clays than the Men. (It must have been their teacher!!!.)
We all retired to the Plough Inn at Lupton for lunch, where unbeknown to the Club members we presented medallions to all and trophies for Best Shot, Highest score and Best Lady shot. All agreed it had been a great Fun day out.
The Light Blue Club hopes to organise similar days out for its members.
