Skeet Doubles Championship

7th Nov 2021: Today was the Cambridgeshire Skeet Doubles Championship at Eriswell Lodge shooting ground.

Another well run shoot and we would like to thank all the staff and the referees for today.

The wind, cold and lack of sun in the afternoon made the targets quite a challenge. The master of skeet, Peter Cook is this year’s Skeet Doubles Champion with 85. Close behind was the Veterans Winner – Roger Fletcher 83 and Senior Mens was Phil Barnard 83.

Winner of the Rabbit Skeet Pool Shoot was Marcus Lord with 23/25 Joint Second was Corbie Barnard and S Page on 21/25.

This was our last Cambridgeshire shoot for 2021 and we will be working to get dates for next years shoots as soon as possible.

May 2022 be a better year for us all.

All the scores

Success at the National Intercounties Skeet

Well done to all who competed this weekend in the National Inter-Counties English Skeet competition.

A massive achievement for Ross Elgie, Richard King and David Roling for all shooting 100/100, with David Roling winning the shoot off.

A further congratulations to:

Yorkshire for winning the Senior Team
Cambridgeshire for winning the Veteran Team
Cheshire for winning the Ladies Team
Hampshire for winning the Juniors Team

I would on a personal level like to congratulate Tim Jones and Peter Cook who took the Veterans Trophy for the second year in a row…. well shot both of you.

Also many thanks to Albert Taylor, James Yarrow, Gary Thatcher and Bob Eagle for competing for the Seniors Team with myself and all shot very well but were unlucky to not take the title this year. It was very difficult this year to even muster the two teams and many many thanks to those above for making the effort to travel to Bisley and shoot for the County, you guys all deserve a medal as far as I am concerned.

Again, thank you all.

Roger Fletcher
Skeet Team Manager

Cambs Double Rise 2021

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:

Veterans’Tim Jones68

East Midlands AGM

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.

Many Thanks
