Cambridgeshire OSK

Well there was a few very silly shooters turned up for the Olympic Skeet at Priory. The targets seemed to disappear into the other field all on their own – partly due to the wind. It was quite cold to boot but we mostly seemed to enjoy being out! It shows you need to do quite a bit more of this style of shooting to be any good at it.

Cambridgeshire Handicap By Distance 2023

Today, 19th March 2023, was the day for the reintroduction of HBD – Handicap by distance. Held at The Priory Clay Target Centre, today saw Cambridgeshire and the East Midlands hold their HBD with a big turnout. Weather was reasonable, no rain, not too windy. When the sun did say hi, although brief, it was like standing in front of a heat lamp!

The Priory did a fantastic job of hosting, well organised and was, as always, a very welcoming ground. We thank them all, including the referees of course, for a well run day. 

Cambridgeshire results:

High Gun: Bruce Cain with 96/280

Seniors: Christopher Morris with 94/276

Vets: Gary Thatcher with 94/274

Ladies: Jane Bell with 94/273

Juniors: Connor Hodson 78/220

Well shot to all who took part, great scores all round today.

Special thank you to Tim Jones for providing the brand new HBD trophies.

Cambridgeshire Shooters on the International Stage

Just a little reminder that we also have a few Cambridgeshire shooters that have a passion for the exotic shooting competitions overseas. Jane Bell went to Cairo for the Helice and had a nice sunny time while we all froze in the snow, but came away with a few great results.

President’s cup – 3rd

Grand Prix – 2nd

Team event – 2nd after a shoot off

Overall standing for the week – 6th

Great to see our shooters doing so well in a overseas event.

Cambridgeshire ABT 2023

Hi all! Well that’s the first of the shoots done for this year – the ABT was held at Nuthampstead SG last Sunday – the 12th of March 2023. The weather was fair for this time of year; a little on the cool side with the wind freshening up as the day went on. Some reasonable scores were coming in from all he squads, just the odd targets getting away from most people. Overall the scores were very close all the way through the day, with most trophy winners being decided on the last round. There were 12 squads for the day as we were twinned with Essex and Herts, which made for a good day all round with good attendance.

Thanks to Ed and the team for some great targets, and to Nicky for helping to arrange the shoots for us and being in charge of the kitchen.
