Scotland cleans up in International Team Shoots at Bisley 2010

Winning not only the NATIONAL (TR), the ELCHO (Match Rifle) but the F Class International as well!

Some very well known names to us appear on the winning teams - Mike Barlow, Tim Kidner, Mike Baillie-Hamilton, Allan Mabon Hamish Hunter and Des Parr to name but a few. Well done guys.

It is to be noted that four shooters: Mike Barlow, Tim Kidner, Angus McLeod and David Hossack appear in both TR and MR winning teams in the same year - must be some sort of record!

Match Rifle

David Hossack shot in the Scotland team at the last win 1965 - 45 years ago, we understand that was his first - not a bad innings! (and our Alastair Munro was the adjutant).

F CLass:

Tim Kidner and Hamish Hunter coached the Scottish F-Class team to victory. Shooters on the team included Mike Barlow, Angus McLeod and Jim McAllister. So Mike, Tim and Angus have appeared in winning MR, TR & F-Class teams in the one year - a record indeed surely?
