Charity Clay Pigeon Shoot
in aid of Tusk
Friday 20th September brought blue skies and brilliant sunshine for the inaugural Tusk Clay Pigeon Shoot at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School. Tucked away in a secluded valley, twenty-four teams of four guns enjoyed an excellent day's sport, with superb hospitality and professional shoot staff assisting at every stand. The rapid-fire "plane" drive proved to be the hit of the day with some teams returning for a second round on this stand, for which they paid handsomely!
Our special thanks go to Philip Buscombe of Lyceum Capital and Jeremy Courtney-Stamp of Macfarlanes LLP for their generous sponsorship and their personal support for this event. The winning team was Investec Asset Management, only beating the Tusk team by a small margin.
Stratstone of Mayfair provided a superb display of Range Rover New Sport, Jaguar F-type and Aston Martin Rapide, joined by the Tusk Conservation Awards Investec Land Rover.
Following an excellent lunch, Sholto Gilbertson from Bonhams kindly joined in the fray and led a good auction with some excellent prizes. Tusk would particularly like to thank the auction donors for their support: Dr Sir Christopher Lever Bt, Tim Best at Gerald Webster, Ashley Boon, DHL, Stratstone of Mayfair Jaguar and Stratstone of Mayfair Land Rover plus Naturally Namibia, Okonjima Lodge, the Mushara Bush Camp, Erongo Wilderness Lodge and Villa Margharita who collaborated on a wonderful 9-day Namibian Safari.
