The annual inter Livery Clay Shoot is one of the highlights of the City of London Charity events. This year the simulated shoot was split over 2 days in May at the Holland & Holland shooting grounds based in Northwood Middlesex, edge of London. There were just short of 500 guns with teams of four representing over 80 Livery Companies. Each member of the team shoots 80 birds sporting over 10 stands. The team then shoot together for the 80- bird flush.
This year the Surveyors’ Livery again fielded two teams, however due to illness and last-minute commitments several guns, including the Master had to withdraw. Replacements were quickly found including a couple of non-Liverymen, who helped Team B achieve 1st place in the non-Livery category with an exceptional score of 284 and were placed 5th= in the overall competition.
Team B consisted of Thomas Dunn, James Webster, Ian Parker, and a roving gun from Team A while Team A consisted of Jason Antil, Harvey Soning, Mark Peace and a roving gun with a combined score of 156 achieving 80thplace in the competition.
Congratulations to Harvey Sonning and Thomas Dunn who were placed 9th and 16th in the individually scores. The day finished off with an outdoor field Lunch
