Cambridgeshire Single Barrel 15th & 16th October Cambridge Gun Club

single barrel champion derek mclean

single barrel winner 2016 Derek Mclean

This shoot also brought the Cambs Supreme Champion competition to a conclusion.  Held over the two days to give all a chance to attend it, the Saturday gave us the nicer weather.  Really nice day, the wind was nonexistent, and the sun came out to play - perfect conditions to shoot.  Some took good advantage of this to put in good scores, the best of the day being Derek McLean with just a few slip ups, finishing on a great 96, he also achieved one of only two 25 straights all weekend. 

Sunday was a little bit more challenging, to start the day a good bit of cross wind to blow the targets around and a bit of rain to help it go down a treat.  The early squads coped well with it all, and scores in the high 80s were put in.  The last squad went out with just 3 people and the sun came out again and then it stayed dry for completion of the competition.  Tim Jones came in with a 93, just a few short, but 2nd overall and enough to take the Vets' class,  Ladies' was won by Elizabeth Cook, alas we had no junior or colt entries. 

Overall winner and County Champion was Derek McLean on 96.  Thanks must go to Cambridge Gun Club for all the tireless work they have done this year to help the committee put on the championships for you all, and to the all other grounds that have been involved in holding the Championships for us.  We hope you have all got something out of this year and hope to be able to get your feedback so we can make it better in the future for all shooters in Cambridgeshire.  Please check the website for the final placings of the Supreme Champion for the year.
