Cambridgeshire DTL 2023

It was a tough day for competitors shooting the Cambridgeshire DTL at The Priory Clay Target Centre on 23 July. 

There was a fantastic turnout and with an added bonus of the ‘miss money pot’ competition. Cloudy with occasional sun, but the wind was having a big influence on the clays.

The Overall champion and A Class winner was Steve Eley with a well earnt 96/284; the Men’s and AA class winner was Phil Barnard with 96/276; Veteran and B Class went to Jem Knight with 95/272 and Ladies and C class winner was Georgina Chamberlain with 93/274. 

Very close scores on a tough day. Congratulations to the winners and well done to all who took part. Full results here.

The Miss Money Pot – shooters pay into a pot with half the money going to the county and half repaid as prize money. 

The number of the first clay each shooter misses goes into a hat and the number drawn out of the hat at the end of the day wins the pot. 

The number drawn out was 1. 

There was a tie as seven shooters had missed their first target.  

Rather than split the money the 7 names were put in a hat and the winner of the pot was Gavin Dunbavin.

As always, the competition was masterfully hosted by the wonderful Priory, and our thanks go to all the clubhouse staff, groundsmen and referees.
