The brethren gave many thanks to all the staff at Wyreside Shooting Ground for putting on the event, with special thanks to Sue Alston, June Casey and Jo Brown for taking the entries, collating the scores, selling the raffle tickets, (they must have been freezing!) and of course the people who selflessly donated the raffle prizes as well as all those who turned up to support the event.
