English Skeet – Intercounties and World Skeet Masters

Team places have been reserved at Northampton on Sunday 11th September for the East Mids Intercounties Skeet. Our squad times are 10:00,10:20 and 10:40. Obviously team members shooting will be selected based on on the results of the Cambridge County Skeet competition on the 1st of May at Eriswell.

As the EM Intercounties clashes with the World Skeet Masters at Eriswell, these squad times give shooters the opportunity to shoot at Eriswell on the Saturday, shoot the I/C on Sunday morning, and be back to Eriswell if you are lucky/unlucky enough to be in a shoot-off 🙂

Good luck to all 👍
