On Tuesday 13th June, whilst dodging the rain showers in Belfast, Foymore Lodge Country Pursuits in Portadown basked in the sunshine and hosted a bumper batch of Ulster Reform Club Members and Guests at the Annual Clay Pigeon Shoot and BBQ.
The number of shooters registered is testament to the popularity and success of this now well established event in the Ulster Reform Club’s event calendar. The Club Member who is Top Gun has their name inscribed on the Wylie Cup; forever recognising their achievement.
Undoubtedly the expert tuition given by the Rangers helped the novices in breaking their first clays before the winning novice was victorious.
The outcome was as follows:
Top Novice – Guilherme Coute, guest of Dr Sonyia McCleane
Top Team - URC Members Louise Smylie, John Caughey with guests PJ Whyte, Steven Boyd and Brian Carson
Top Guest – Hugh Simms guest of Desmond Wilson
Top Gun & this year’s Wylie Cup winner – URC Member - Paul Hollinger (for the third year!)
Many congratulations to our winners and thanks to all who took part and to Cunningham Coates Stockbrokers for sponsoring this annual event. We are also indebted to Irish Country Sports and Country Life magazine, The Great Game Fairs of Ireland and Countryside Alliance Ireland for their continued support of this event.
