Young Shots 2018

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!

Cambridgeshire Sporting

Cambridge Gun Club 21st May 2017

The day was a super day for shooting, and it was good to see so many top shots on a course that us mere mortals thought very testing.  The course setter Mick said he thought a 96 would do it but it’s always nice when a specialist course setter is wrong as he was in this case, as a 97 won it.

ESP Winners

Wow!! how do they do it, 97 that is fantastic, and this was achieved by A Harvey from Suffolk. As I said, many good shooters took part, but our eyes are, of course, on the Cambridgeshire contingent.  This was led By Phil Gray with a super 95 and this was enough to take the County title for who knows how

Brian Dunbavin

many consecutive times.  Phil was closely followed by Justin Bladen with 93, Harry Seal with 92 and Mark Bowes with 90.

The Vets came out in force and all showed their form, but it was Brian Dunbavin coming out on top once again with a fine 88.

A squad of Ladies were evident, always good to see as Cambridgeshire has a task to get a full ladies team together but I think we may be in luck this year. From the ladies, Holly Duggan shone out not only winning the County Championship but also was top lady overall with a 71 and there was some very good ladies taking part on the day.

The juniors, well, what a top performance from Dan Mawby he shot 88 not only taking the Juniors but also winning A class. Super job Dan.

The Colts also thin on the ground but a very good day for K Carter 74, what a good shoot for a Colt and now County champion.

 

So to round up .

County Champion Phil Gray 95

Senior Champion Justin Bladen 93

Vets Champion Brian Dunbavin 88
