Dartmoor vs West Devon Bench Rest – Final Round.


Thirteen plucky souls braved the cold and wind at the final round of this inter club winter series. There should have been a few more but unfortunately Sue Gould was a little under the weather, as was Trevor Bray who has just got over Covid and Graham Noyce had an eye operation earlier this week. We wish them all well.

So, broken into squads of three, off we went.

Dartmoor now have three permanent lanes, two in their dedicated range hut and a new lane cut to the right of the original two. The ‘outside’ lane without a doubt was taking a little more of the wind today as it was gusting from the right. Not so much that it could not be coped with, but being variable in both strength and direction, it kept everyone ‘entertained’ and meant that scores reflected the challenge.

Highest scoring card of the day and the man who got his fiver entry fee back was Dave Taylor from Dartmoor with a 242, narrowly beating Nigel Palmer with a 241. Overall high score was Paul Read from West Devon with a super impressive 713 x16.

Adding the top six scores shows that West Devon won the day with a total of 4161 to beat Dartmoor’s 4157.

The final total for the series gives the win to Dartmoor with 16,670. West Devon scoring an incredibly close 16,631 a remarkable difference of only 39 points over the whole series.

This has been a really fun series, I missed one round at West Devon, but there have been plenty of regulars along with a similar number who have given BR competitions a try for the first time.

Next BR news will be the dates of the SWEFTA series and the first of the scores from those shoots. At the time of writing we have three clubs who will definitely be involved, Dartmoor, West Devon and Purbeck, with a strong possibility that Duchy will join us.

Other clubs are welcome to dip a toe, or to visit their nearest participating club to see just how little is involved in running a BR competition.
