Rod Gifford Memorial Shooting – 29th August 2022, Eriswell Lodge

This shoot was held at Eriswell Lodge on Bank Holiday Monday, 29th August, between 10 and 3pm. Philip Barnard, Lesley Gifford, and the hosts at Eriswell did an amazing job of organising this event. What a tribute to Rod! 

There was a huge array of fantastic prizes, all donated by individuals and local, and national businesses. 

M Goddard – High Gun

T Jones – Vets High Gun

B Woodham – Disabled High Gun

Amy Hedgecock – Ladies High Gun, Junior High Gun

Thanks to you everyone who supported the event, over £2,500 has been raised for Addenbrookes, which you all contributed to.  Big thank you to Eriswell Lodge who hosted the event and made it a great day. 

Cambridgeshire Lording it at the British Open Skeet!

Congratulations to Marcus and Ethan Lord, two Cambridgeshire shooters who took part in the British Open Skeet at Eriswell this weekend. They each shot their first ever 100-straights, and what a time to do it!

They deservedly took the Parent/Child category with 200ex200, unsurprisingly, but were then faced with shootoffs for the overall title and categories/classes, as two other shooters had also shot straights.

Ethan shot 100+25+14 to come second behind Tom Clifford’s 100+25+16. He also took the Juniors’ Category.

Marcus shot 100+24 to come third overall.

Fantastic shooting, the pair of you.
