Provincial Shooting Team

Mendip Shooting Ground on a bitterly cold and windy Saturday in April - an intrepid and very hardy bunch of Wiltshire Freemasons took part in the Masonic clay pigeon competition held at the Mendip Shooting Ground near Wells, Somerset.

Competition was fierce against teams from Cornwall, Somerset and Bristol. Rumour has it the Wiltshire team came third.

Their next foray was on the 23rd June at the 8th National Masonic Clay Shoot at Cart Ridge Shooting Ground in Cornwall. In an interview with Across the Plain, John Burgess said: "We were the clay-saver team of the day!"
