Well, we couldn’t get everyone on the squad to go to the match on the weekend because some had work and other things they couldn’t get out of. So we organised three slots on the thursday night detail in UCD and I drove the girls and their kit out there to shoot and back again, and ran stats while I was there.
And man, did they kick ass. One set what has to be a club record (and which might be an Irish record, but we’ve not finished checking the records yet) for a highest first-match score with 527 (honest, she’d never even picked up a rifle before October), and the others did well as well (though one learnt that if you shot in pumps rather than shooting boots, your score suffers!).
So overall, it was a good detail and well worth the effort it took to get them there and back!
