Laporte Ball Trap

Dartford Clay Sports Club

Charlie Lucas testimony

Just a quick letter to inform you of our Championship shoot held at Dartford Clay Sports Club. The shoot was a NSSA registered skeet event at Dartford, the Iron Man Championship held over two days on the 5th and 6th of April, this consisted of 400 12 Gauge targets, 200 shot straight through each day. Myself and one of the ground staff, Dave Nicholson, had serviced the traps on the four skeet ranges before the event in preparation for the high volume of target to be thrown. We had an entry of 53 guns, with a maximum capacity of 60, giving a total of 21,200 targets to be thrown. Over the weekend we did not have one broken target of the traps. This goes to show the quality of the targets.
