The Ladies team came 2nd pipped at the post by Lincolnshire. Our team consisted of Michele Conway, Jane Bell, Fran Jacobs and Amelia Streeter-Smith.
The Veterans team all shot well and came 3rd our team was Timothy Jones, Gary Thatcher, Richard Croft and Brian Jacobs.
Thank you to Team manager Timothy Jones you have done a great job of getting the teams organised!
Congratulations to all and next weekend we have the East Midlands Intercounties All Round, good luck to the teams.
Today (Sunday 22nd August), Cambs were at The Priory for the Double Rise. Most shot theirs this morning before ‘shooting’ across to Northampton. Last squad was at 1pm. Weather was quite dreary. Overcast for the most part, not too windy. The Priory did a fab job of catering for our shoot as well as holding a skeet competition.
The results are as follows:
A terrific 85
Congratulations to our winners and a big thanks to those who took the time to shoot. Our massive thanks to Natasha at The Priory, for holding the competition.
It’s obviously AGM season… Here’s a note from Colin Butler regarding the East Midlands one:
I am pleased to say that we have booked the Bell Inn at Stilton for the East Midlands CPSA AGM.
The date for your diaries is Monday 13th September 2021.
Janet has indicated she would like a pre-meeting starting at 7pm and then a welcome buffet from 7-30pm, with the AGM starting at 8pm, I hope you can make the early kick off.
As always can I have the names of your elected county representatives before that date, and can I ask if you cannot attend that you send a substitute attendee, although we don’t envisage the AGM will go on for long with no presentations this year.
Ian Parker and Clare Alger from HQ has been invited to attend.
Janet also informs me that the costs at the Bell Inn have risen significantly, so it may well be time to once again move our business elsewhere, so if you have a venue in mind and think we should investigate the possibilities please let myself or Janet know, obviously it must be as central as possible.
I would be grateful if you share details of the AGM date on your websites and Facebook pages.
So that’s the Single Barrel for another year done and dusted
Thanks go to Priory CTC for holding it for us again,
It was a fair day for the Fens a little bit of a breeze on the odd occasion, but grey clouds are all around us and every now and again just a slight bit of misty rain. But not as bad as forecast for the day.
93 (on countback)
Both E Lord and H Whiten also managed to win at the East Midlands DTL held at Northampton today – well done both.
Also thanks for all who shot today to support Cambridgeshire.
Well that’s the FITASC done for this year. Thanks to Eriswell for holding it for us as well as for Suffolk and Norfolk. A fair turn out of shooters on the whole, not such a good turn out for Cambs, but thanks go to the ones that turned up and shot. Also thank you to the scorers and staff – always got a smile on their faces and seem pleased to see you there.
