Mendip Shoot Society

On Thursday 12 members of our rejuvenated Clay Pigeon Shooting Society took part in their first competition of the season. 

The Warminster School South West Cup is a 50 Bird Sporting Competition with various schools from the South West taking part. Downside entered two senior and one junior teams.  The teams were selected from pupils who have been taking part in our weekly Clay Target Shooting Society training sessions which take place every Sunday. Although the teams had very little experience in the competition, the event was enjoyed by all and, after a successful 80 Bird Flush Shoot, the junior team gained a 3rd place bronze medal.

Any pupils wishing to take part in Clay Target Shooting or for further information please contact the Shooting Master – Mr Pollard.
