Cambs UT

Well that’s the 2nd trip to Nuthampstead this year this time for the UT. A good entry for the event some 10 squads not all full but close to it. The day was a bit cold and windy at times, and the last few rounds for the late squads a bit of a downpour to top it all off. The shooting was very close all the way through the day, making it a great day’s shooting and competitive. As the day unfolded the best shooter finally pipped all. My thanks to Ed and Nicky and their staff for their work.

Overall champion. G Russo 93

Senior champion. M Sheldrake 90

Veterans champion. P Ward 89

Ladies champion. S Christensen 84

Corona Virus – update

Dear All

****** IMPORTANT NEWS *******
We have been advised today by the CPSA that all England Selection Shoots have been cancelled for the remainder of the season and this is across all disciplines.
The England Selection Sporting Shoot scheduled for Sporting Targets this weekend will still go ahead but is now downgraded to a normal registered shoot. Has now been cancelled, but Sporting Targets remain open as usual.

Can I ask you all to spread this far and wide.

Can I stress that Sporting Targets are not running a registered shoot this weekend.

I will of course update you of any news as soon as I get it.

Kind Regards 

Colin Butler
