It is with great sadness that we report that Maurice 'Mo' Chapman passed away suddenly during Easter weekend. Mo had been active in the sport for many years as a competitor and county team member. He also helped on the county committee and at various grounds. Our thoughts and sympathy go out to his family and friends.

Congratulations to Jane Bell for winning the county ZZ, and also a team gold and individual bronze at the World ZZ. Full details here.

Feb: Note that a number of Cambridgeshire championships have changed dates since the AGM - check the individual fixtures page for the latest updates. Apologies for any inconvenience caused by these changes.
Note that there is a change to the rules for the Champion of Champions this year; the committee have decided that as some shooters are unable to shoot on Saturdays owing to work commitments, the disciplines that are only shootable on a Saturday this year (ZZ, D/T, OSK) will be excluded from the championship, so it will be a 12-discipline event.
Thanks to all who attended the AGM on 10th January in Willingham, not least for the lively discussion on how hard sporting disciplines should be.
