 Deep in the countryside of Paddock Wood, two members spent a gloriously sunny morning learning the skill of clay pigeon shooting, with members from other WI's.  We moved around different stands where the clay pigeons were thrown up in a variety of trajectories, such as that of Skeet, Pigeon, Rabbit etc.  We had five shots with the 20 bore shot gun for each target before moving on.
The Instructor was patient and persistent, ensuring that we all hit some targets.
As you can see Val is in control of the gun (broken) and it is rumoured that she was the best shot.

PETANQUE  - watch out,  our members mean business. 

 What better place to learn to play Petanque than at Istead Rise Petanque club on 1st September when Joyce Janice, Christine and Val joined 28 other WI members at a West Kent Federation event.  We were told about the history of the game and the rules.  We were divided into teams of 3 to play very competitively.  Tactics being the name of the game! We played all day and finished the afternoon with a mini tournament.  Istead Rise club were very patient and encouraging and even made cakes for our break assuming that we would only eat home made refreshments!

Not just tactics, but CONCENTRATION   from Janice.
