Woodstock Christmas Shoot 2019
We started off by welcoming our guests from the Swale Stroke Group for the evening, Stuart and Janet. Tom one of our younger members had done our Christmas targets which were just for fun, one being a Christmas tree, shooting targets and not presents and the lucky lottery, with 10 random numbers picked by Siri, with a point for each one hit.
Christmas jumpers were a must, you paid for wearing one and paid if you didn’t. (Bah Humbug).
We were raising money for the Stroke Group, as a member has had one and is now on the road to recovery, with the aid of friends and family.
Food and drink were laid on for everyone which was done by Michelle, who was cooking all day Thursday. It was a donation shoot to raise as much as we could for the Stroke Group, a cheque was made out for £200, but we done much better than that, we managed to extrude £300 out of everyone on the night, which shocked myself and the members one and all.
The shooting going on with a lot of food and drink flowing and plenty of chatting. Presents were put into a bag, and first top three scores pulled out of the bag, first there were chocolates, bottles of drink, biscuits, bottle openers.
With the shooting done, we had speeches made by Stuart and Janet from the Stroke Group saying a big thank you to everyone for their input by us all, and once again many thanks to all who helped, Tom Watson, Michelle Ballard, George Ballard for being Range officer and keeping everyone in check, and finally one massive thank you to all who attended and donated money to a very good cause.
Merry Christmas and see you all next year, first shoot back is the 2nd January 2020.
From Paul Ballard and all of the Committee members.
