Well we went to Rugby for the intercounties, Cambridgeshire, and East Midlands Helice, a good entry but only 4 teams were entered,
The day started a little cool at first, but soon brightened up and we had a hot and sunny day. There was a slight wind but in the right direction for shooting Helice.
The team were all a little bit rusty and all made the odd mistake and lost targets, but it was enjoyable.
The big surprise came from Chris Hall – he wanted to come and try this new sport of Helice that he’d never seen or shot before… and shot an almost perfect score 23/24 and in so doing took the Cambridgeshire championship. A new convert to the discipline, me thinks?
Our thanks go to the team from Rugby for setting it all up and looking after us all day.
Another great shoot today at Eriswell Lodge. The Cambridgeshire All Round Championship.
Phil and Corbie Barnard donated 100 cartridges for each category and class winners in memory
of Rod Gifford, possibly Cambridgeshire’s greatest all round shot.
The tricky sporting caught many shooters out with some lower scores than normal.
Our Champion this year and AA class winner is Darren Stanford with a magnificent score of 92 including 2 x 25 straights.
Senior Mens was S Smith on 86 Veterans was PC Simpsons on 85 Colts was Ethan Lord with 67 Ladies was Michelle Conway on 61 AA class winner is Darren Stanford A Class Winner is Chris Morris B Class Winner is Corbie Barnard No C Class shooters
All the above winners have won 100 cartridges those who did not collect can pick them up from Eriswell.
