This year’s Bob Beaver Memorial Shoot took place at the Royal Berkshire shooting school near Reading, where 90 suppliers and merchants took on the challenge to become the industry’s top gun.

The event, which is now in its third year, is fast becoming a not-to-miss industry gathering where merchants and suppliers can take on the sporting challenge, while enjoying a fantastic networking environment to catch up with friends and colleagues on what is happening in their sector.

This shoot had the generous support of the BMF, Crystal, Dickies, Henkel, IKO, Knauf Insulation, Makita, Monument Tools, NMBS, Toolbank and Yale, who along with the other shooters in attendance, raised £10,000 for the Rainy Day Trust.

This year’s top shooters were: top lady - Lorna Glover from Bradford Building Supplies, top non merchant - James Whitaker from Dickies, overall top gun runner up - Peter Boden from Frank Key, while the 2017 winner who only missed eight clays, was Ian Beaver, who was also representing Frank Key.

Next year’s event will take place on 12 July, 2018 at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School. Places are restricted to 100 participants so please contact Michael Dark on to book your place.
