British businessmen networking via shotgun shooting
The London Times Online has the story.
"PUT down those golf clubs and go for your gun: shooting is fast becoming the social networking sport of choice.
A survey of 2,000 companies and 14,000 directors shows that shooting is soaring in popularity. A decade ago, toting a shotgun did not even feature among the most popular recreations listed by company directors. But the survey ranks shooting as the seventh most popular recreation, almost level with gardening."
But the remark I like best is: "“In golf, if you’re no good it’s painfully obvious. In shooting, if you keep missing birds nobody minds...."
