Rugby & District Trap Club were very happy to be asked to stage the first East Midlands Helice County & Area Championship on Sunday April 28th
Sun was out giving good visibility but not that warm with a cool breeze greeted the fantastic turnout of 8 squads, it was great to see five of the county teams turn up Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Suffolk, Leicestershire & Nottinghamshire to fight it out for the massive array of prizes
A magnificent cup sponsored by TM Bark of Norfolk and valued at over £300 was presented to the winning County team Cambridgeshire, also Engraved crystal tankards and a sponsored prize fund of £250 was shared amongst the members of the winning County team: Michele Conway, Jane Bell, Kevin Flitton, Andrew Oaky, Tim Jones & Ashley Smith. Full results attached
A superb engraved trophy was presented to the individual High Gun: Junior shooter Connor Harris with a great score of 23 on his first outing at Helice, sure it won’t be long before he a member of the Helice Junior GB Team, great shooting Connor. Plus, also over £300 in prize money from the individual part of the event for those wanting to shoot “Competition” In addition, to World Cup Express cartridges being presented
Northamptonshire, Norfolk & Bedfordshire members sure you have some good shots that can shoot Helice, let your committees know you don’t want to miss out on this great event and sharing in the goodies next year
I’m sure everybody joins me in giving a big thankyou to Donovan Jenkin for being the driving force behind getting the event off the ground and the East Midlands committees & Team Managers for supporting their members in making this a great event
Not only did Cambridgeshire win the team event; Michele Conway took Supervets’ and Jane Bell tied with Donovan Jenkin (Lincs) for Vets’ (time pressure meant there was no shoot-off so it was agreed that they share). Well done Ladies!!! Fantastic shooting.
