The annual Inter-group Trophy battled over by the Masonic Clay Pigeon Shooting Society is a keenly contested competition and it could be said, albeit tongue in cheek and according to one of the society’s marksmen Tony Hough, that it brings to the fore men of the right caliber!
Tony and his fellow sharp shooters Jason Rhodes and Simon Tattersall have good reason to be just a little smug for, at the recent shoot-out, the trio saw off stiff competition from rival groups to win the coveted trophy for the third time since the inception of the competition. North Fylde notched up a score of 102 points narrowly seeing off a challenge from second placed Liverpool who finished on 99 points.
Assistant Provincial Grand Master Harry Cox presented Tony with the trophy at the installation meeting of Anchorsholme Chapter and the trophy, a brandy decanter, will be given pride of place in a display behind the bar at Cleveleys Masonic Hall.
