Sunday 6th June, we headed to Cambridge Gun Club for our Cambridgeshire Sporting competition. The day started warm and cloudy but around lunchtime the sun came out full force to provide the shooters with a bright and clear day. With 140 entries for the day, it was going to be a very busy day. I was refereeing on stand 11 (the grouse stand) so got to see everyone as they came through. After a slow start, squad 1 finally reached me shortly before midday. Most shooters were in high spirits and I had a good number of maximum scores on my stand (two drivens), however, I had heard ‘on the grape vine’ that stand 12 was causing all sorts of difficulties, and scores were mostly low for the stand. Some of our Cambridgeshire team had to drop out from stand 10 to return to Eriswell for their shoot offs, after having shot amazingly well there.
Our thanks go to Cambridge Gun Club for their hard work in holding this big event.
Here are the Cambridgeshire winners for the ESP in 2021:
61 (ex76 – BO Skeet shoot-off!)
Congratulations, well shot everyone!
Report from Hanna Hall, Cambs Sporting Team Manager.
With four of the nine disciplines completed, and the fifth in progress as I type, the 2021 Supreme Champion with some familiar names near the top – although last year’s 10th place is currently running in 2nd, only 2 points behind the leader. See the details here (apologies for the formatting of the table, I’ll try to get that sorted when I update it with the ESP results)
