Sergeant Ian Rose: Fined us as usual and told his weekly joke. 
Clay pigeon shooting
Clay pigeon shooting, also known as clay target shooting, and formally known as Inanimate Bird Shooting, is the art of shooting a firearm at special flying targets, known as clay pigeons or clay targets.The terminology commonly used by clay shooting  often relates to times past when live-pigeon competitions were held.  Although such competitions were made illegal in the UK in 1921, a target may still be called a “bird”, a hit may be referred to as a “kill”, and a missed target as a “bird away”; the machine which projects the targets is still known as a “trap”.
A COVID Marshal plays an important role in making sure  events are COVIDSafe at all times, protecting volunteers, punters and members of the community.
President James closed the meeting with the following quote:
‘A PESSIMIST- sees a dark tunnel
AN OPTIMIST - sees light at the end of the tunnel
A REALIST - sees a freight train
THE TRAIN DRIVER - sees 3 idiots standing on the tracks.’
