The inaugural Bob Beaver Memorial Clay Pigeon Shoot took place under some fabulous weather conditions at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School.
Over 70 guests from builders merchants and suppliers joined forces to take on the challenge of becoming the industry’s ‘Top Gun’ and while raising money for the Rainy Day Trust, one of the charities that supports those who work or have worked in the sector.
The event sponsors were AkzoNobel, Crystal, Dickies, IKO, Knauf Insulation, Makita, NMBS and Toolbank and their guests enjoyed a fabulous day out of the office in the beautiful Berkshire countryside.
Neil Carter from Long Water Supplies took the Top Gun award and is the proud custodian of the Bob Beaver Trophy for the next 12 months. Runner up just one clay behind him was Malcolm Partridge of Frank Key Group.
Kate Tinsley, md of Buildbase, took the women’s award.
The shoot also caters for those who haven’t shot previously – Michael Graham from AkzoNobel took top rookie with runner up Steve Halford from Crystal a very close contender.
In all the event raised just over £7,000 for the Rainy Day Trust.
Next year’s event will take place on Thursday 14th July 2016 .
