Dial-a-Cab's Donna Merry is about to shock the world of professional
shooting by relinquishing the title she values so dearly - that of England
Now aged 22, Donna told Call Sign that while she is proud of the success she has had at captaining her country, she feels that it is also holding her back because she will always be shooting under the "ladies" category.
"I want to move up to the 'Seniors' class," said Donna, "which happens to be all men and so far as I know, they have never had a woman shooter in their midst!"
So why would someone who has had almost six years of non-stop shooting success since first coming in at the tender age of 16, want to give on the class that has given her so much glory - including that of British Champion and a silver medal in the World Championships - to go into such a difficult class?

Dial-a-Cab driver and marshal, Gerry Dunn (S84), was looking rather red
in the face while marshalling on EC5 recently. When asked why, he told Call
Sign of a rather embarrassing occurrence that had taken place in his cab
He had "trapped" a tasty street job on the corner of Seven Sisters Road and Holloway Road going to Battersea. However, the word tasty may not have referred totally to the journey but possibly to the goings-on inside the cab during the trip!
"In all my years of driving a taxi, I had never seen anything quite so blatant," said Gerry! "I truthfully didn't know where to look." And what exactly was this blatancy?
No wonder Gerry is smiling...!
"As I looked left while pulling across the road, I suddenly saw a pair of ladies legs almost hitting the roof lining. I

"Sure pal," said our excited reporter before reporting back with his scoop...!
