Seaford College held the Down The Line (DTL) competition at its on-site shooting range over the weekend. DTL involves a moving target that starts out 16 yards away from the competitor, who then fires from five shooting points, which are arranged in a curved line. Participants take it in turns to shoot five targets from each stand, giving them a total of 25 targets. Competitors are awarded two points for hitting the target with their first attempt and one point if they strike it with their second effort, meaning the maximum score is 50.
Douglas Hayter (pictured) came out on top on Saturday after scoring 32/50, with the highest total by a Prep School pupil being William Greaves’s 29/50.
If you would like to try clay shooting at Seaford, practice sessions are held every Saturday mornings. For more information, email Tony Bracci at email@example.com or call him on 07802 935476.
