At Bramleys we really believe in fostering great team relations in the business both within our company and with other companies we work with on a weekly basis. Being part of a cohesive team working towards the same goals is key to success, and so with this in mind we invited a select group to come and stand in a cold field with us on a windy Saturday morning!
You could see how this could back fire on us if it wasn't for strong relationships!
We arrived in the depths of Farnley Tyas for clay pigeon shooting with the cream of Ramsdens, Eaton Smith, Armitage Sykes, Finn Gledhill, Hsbc, Yorkshire Post, Worth Homes, Miller Homes, Handelsbanken, & Simpson Wood. Some of our guests had experienced the shooting last year (it rained all day, we got quite bruised), others were country pursuits newbies!
Pride was at stake, the battle lines were drawn, we zipped up our jackets and thought about the warm meal we would have later at the Golden Cock.
Paul, Fran, Helen & Graeme were team captain's from Bramleys. Antonia was chief photographer, Donna was 1 member of team Fran.
After a safety briefing (more of that later) we were out in the field with our excellent and patient instructors. As was typical of any event planned in the UK great outdoors, the weather had turned!
We listened (always a good skill to hone) we aimed, we shot, we encouraged each other, we got a little rained on, we laughed and we tried our best.
Fran broke one of the guns in half reloading, obviously keen to get to the pub, he cited sabotage from Graeme during the safety briefing.
The victorious team on the day were Graeme's team of Jason, David, Simon and Adam. Well done!
Neil from Handelsbanken was top gun of the day with the most shots hit and Karen from Ramsdens was the best lady for the 2nd year in a row!
We finished up enjoying a great meal in the Golden Cock, the epitome of a perfect Yorkshire village pub.
Until next time!
