Even though only half the usual number of teams attended the annual Ali’s Dream clay pigeon shoot in Padbury this year, the 37 guns who turned up last Sunday had a great time and raised £500.
This adds to the £30,000 the event has raised over the last 12 years for brain tumour research.
There was fierce competition as Whaddon Wind Ups, led by Roger Jaworski, claimed back the winning trophy from the Dog Squad, led by Dave Reeves of Bicester. Whaddon Wind Ups shot an impressive 180 out of 200, and The Dog Squad shot 175.
Top Gun was Quainton-based David Osborne, winning for the first time having shot 49 out of 50, just beating runner up James Holton with 48.
