Cambs ESK Eriswell Lodge 1st April2018

Well we were not disappointed as on the day 60 entries were recorded at the desk of Eriswell Lodge. Later 2 shooters did call off but 58 according to Johnathon the ground manager this was a record.

Also, it’s worth saying we had the gods shining on us with the weather.

When arriving I spoke to last year’s winner Albert Taylor as he was leaving for another shoot he had posted 99.  When I reached the Clubhouse I found Chris Morris had done the same.  Well I’m thinking we should have a good team this year.

During the day I saw a lot of very good shooting and some very good scores posted. It didn’t take me long to see that we had a good selection of Ladies and Colts to make up the numbers as well.

At the end of the day Albert Taylor and Chris Morris with their 99’s were the winners.  This meant a shoot off was imminent and with the Bev Waller trophy at stake this meant that any shooter on the day could take the trophy, so a shoot off to decide that had to take place.  The shoot off consisted of two Suffolk shooters and our own Chris Morris.

This was doubles on 4 and was well worth watching. Eric Chapman took the honours and was a worthy winner.

That over results were:

Chris Morris was Cambs County Champ. 99

Albert Taylor is Senior Champ 99

Vets went to Tim Jones 97

Colts Archie Bowman 93

Ladies after a shoot off with Janet Maguire went to Ami Hedgecock 89

AA Chris Morris 99

A   Glen Moulding 97

B   Peter Gaskin    95

C   Marcus Webb  90.


I note that Archie Bowman shot 2 x25 straights on his way to the colts trophy , It also looks like we have ladies Colts and Vets a plenty so the Intercounties at Northampton on the glorious twelfth (12/8) should see a very good entry from Cambs
