With the last championship of the year having been shot just before lockdown kicks in, we now have the results of the Cambridgeshire Supreme Championship. This competition takes shooters’ best 6 scores from the 9 domestic discplines to determine the winner.
Phil Barnard has once again won the overall title scoring 540 points, 26 points clear of the Veteran champion Gary Thatcher. The Barnard haul of titles continued with Corbie Barnard taking the Senior title. Ethan Lord took the Colt title. Sadly no ladies or juniors shot a qualifying 6 competitions.
The Veterans competition was particularly close, being determined in the final, all-round, competition. Gary Thatcher’s 514 was closely followed by Richard Croft on 513 and Tim Jones on 512.
Well that’s the last of the Cambridgeshire county shoots done for this year. We had a reasonable turn out even after the new lockdown rules that were just announced, and we were lucky to get all the shoots done this year. Thanks to Eriswell Lodge for putting this on for us. The day was a bit overcast and the wind played its part in the scores, and we even had a small amount of rain too.
And our thanks to all the shooters that have supported the county by attending the shoots all year thank you all.
Congratulations to Henry Sperring; still a Junior and overall Champion, as well as being on the Team GB Talent Pathway. Well shot, great to watch you shoot it. Thanks to the Priory for another great shoot. Tim.
At Priory Shooting Ground on Sunday 18th October for the Double Rise there was a little light wind and the light was a bit dull but the rain stayed away but it still made the clays tricky to see. Great targets overall, but the weather conditions made it hard for most people. Thanks go to Priory again for a well run competition.
Well that’s all the Cambs shoots done for another year and the time seems to have gone so quickly we have had lots of good shooting from all the people who have been involved in the counties shoots. The last one as always was the ZZ Helice, held at Rugby Sun 26th November. A cold day with a light breeze from the rear which just could make a difference to the targets if you left them a bit late. But a strong turnout from Cambs, taking the first 3 placings. Sat at the top for the day was K Flitton taking top spot again by one target from T Jones to take the vets and M Conway just 2 targets behind and takes the Ladies. With thanks to John and his team for a good day always a pleasure to go.
Cambridgeshire Sportrap 28th/29th October – Cambridge GC
This was tough but fair, the wind made it tough but it was windy for all taking part but, as usual you can’t stop the cream from rising to the top and that it did with two of the country’s top men Mark Bowes and Harry Seal finishing on 87. Only one person bettered that but he was a Suffolk shooter, Richard Bunning (89). Vets won by Michael Fryer (79), Juniors Taylor Hedgecock (84) and Ladies Holly Duggan (73), and Colts Kieran Carter (71). Well shot to you all.
