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!

Cambridgeshire ZZ Championship 2017

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.

Cambridgeshire STR Championship 2017

Cambridgeshire Sportrap 28th/29th October – Cambridge GC

This was tough but fair, the wind made it tough but it was windy for all taking part but, as usual you can’t stop the cream from rising to the top and that it did with two of the country’s top men Mark Bowes and Harry Seal finishing on 87.  Only one person bettered that but he was a Suffolk shooter, Richard Bunning (89).  Vets won by Michael Fryer (79), Juniors Taylor Hedgecock (84) and Ladies Holly Duggan (73), and Colts Kieran Carter (71).  Well shot to you all.

Details of who actually won to follow once provided by the committee!

Cambridgeshire ABT

The Cambridgeshire ABT held on the 1/10/17 this was held at Cambridge Gun Club, This was a hard fought battle and didn’t sort itself out until the later stages of the day. Only 4 targets separated the top 5 shooters at the end of the day but the top man was Chris Morris with a 93 The runner up on 91 Philip Barnard even shot a 20 to help Chris on his way.  Only one 25 straight was recorded and that was by a previous Cambridgeshire Shooter Paul Neal just to show he doesn’t just do DTL.

Well shot Chris again.

Cambridgeshire FITASC

From the county chair:

The County FITASC Championship which was held on the 26/27th August at Grimsthorpe. I went on the Sunday to get some pictures but being held over 2 days the County winners shot on the Saturday so no pictures of them.  But the Cambs Championship was taken by Harry Seal with a 86 the Vets went to Steve Grant with 83 and the Ladies went to Holly Duggan with 68. These are very good scores indeed judging by the score board only two people shot better than Harry over 2 days.

Cambridgeshire DTL

The 20th Aug was the eagerly awaited Cambs DTL Championship held over 4 layouts at Cambridge Gun Club.  Cambridgeshire fielded its top shooters, all looking to be the next DTL Champion. But there is only room for one and it was soon evident that the early score of 299 put in by Richard Morris was going to be enough to crown him Cambridgeshire DTL Champion for 2017. The other places went to Chris Morris (Richard’s Dad) taking the Seniors and A class with a 293.  The Ladies went to Hazel Whiten with a 286, so far all the honours are going home in the same car!
