Why not become a CPSA qualified safety Officer? Cambridge Gun Club is hosting a training course on Tuesday 17th April.
The Cambs ABT date and venue has now been confirmed as Saturday 8th September 2018 at The Priory Gun Club. For the full list of fixtures, please go to the 2018 fixtures page
All but one of the Cambridgeshire Fixtures are now determined – see here for details. The ABT will be held at The Priory, but the date is yet to be determined. There was a *provisional* date of 17th June – this has been cancelled.
The first Cambridgeshire Championship is English Skeet on April 1st – Easter Sunday – although the first East Midlands Championship is this Sunday, 11th March (ABT).
Cambridgeshire CPSA, in conjunction with Cambridge Gun Club, are delighted to announce their new Young Shots Programme. This new programme is designed for youngsters, with a keen interest in shooting (but maybe lacking experience), to gain training and experience across a number of disciplines. The idea is to provide support, mentoring and tuition to increase the number of youngsters entering our sport, and shooting for Cambridgeshire ….. and maybe even go as far as intercounty or national competitions. Who knows maybe we’re already looking at our future Commonwealth Games or Olympic champions!
The first intake for February 2018 are (from L>R) Henry Sperring, Sam Halls, Daniel Wareing, Oscar Jarvis, Alice Wareing, Ethan Lord and Finlay Watson. [Photo provided by Cambridge GC with parental consent]
Good luck to you all and we’re looking forward to hearing about your progress and achievements in the future.
At the recent East Midlands AGM Chris Morris was awarded the Supreme Champion title for an incredible 6th year. Well done Chris!
Michele Conway won a very well deserved lifetime award for her service to the sport. She has shot and won at County, regional and national level competitions. She has also been heavily involved with the CPSA over the years, having held the position of Cambs CPSA Chair on numerous occasions as well as regional and national posts.
Last, but not least, Allan Wright collected the Directors Trophy for Cambridgeshire.
Thank you to all our members who took the time to attend the Cambridgeshire CPSA AGM. Some new faces and some old. A huge thank you to all the committee members for offering their time to (amongst other things) schedule competitions and organise trophies, and badges. Details of your new committee, including contact details, can be found here.
A flurry of emails from the committee has allowed us to update a variety of the Championship reports on the website. Some have write-ups added, some have new photos.
We hope you have liked the 2017 redesign of the website – we’ve been getting over 500 visits a week on average, so you’re obviously liking something!
Merry Xmas & Happy New Year
Sarah & David Christensen – the Cambs CPSA website team.
Report from Tim Jones:
Well that’s all the Cambs shoots done for another year and the time seems to have gone so quickly we have had lots of good shooting from all the people who have been involved in the counties shoots. The last one as always was the ZZ Helice, held at Rugby Sun 26th November. A cold day with a light breeze from the rear which just could make a difference to the targets if you left them a bit late. But a strong turnout from Cambs, taking the first 3 placings. Sat at the top for the day was K Flitton taking top spot again by one target from T Jones to take the vets and M Conway just 2 targets behind and takes the Ladies. With thanks to John and his team for a good day always a pleasure to go.
