shooters had a good result at the nationals today at Northampton. 20 squads turned out a
good result for the event. High
gun vet R croft vets
team winners R Croft/T Jones/ G Thatcher
Runner up ladies’ team A Smith and H Whiten. Junior runner up S Halls, unfortunately lost by default not being there for the shoot off. Martine would not let me shoot for him instead….I don’t blame her though. Thanks to Sywell for hosting the event.
It was a shame to say not many entries, but saying that there was a lot of shooting going on all over the country, so people were a little short on the ground. Hey ho, we just have such a busy season. Trying not to interfere with other shoots is very hard.
The day was a nice sunny day for the most part, a slight wind over the shoulder on occasions would just alter the odd bird enough to catch you out. Reasonable scores were coming in but the last squad went out with Philip Barnard in it and he shot 95 – the best score of the day by far. Enough to win the trophy for the second time in three years. Well done that man! The vets went to Richard Croft with an admirable 90. The juniors was won by Sam Hall with 82. No ladies contested it this year so the trophy is held in keeping for next year. Thanks to Cambridge Gun Club for their support and help in providing the venue for us again.

The day looked promising to start with; a little wind, but not too bad. Then the rain started and the wind got up then we had a few sunny spells with gusts, but we all tried our best for the conditions. The overall winner, by one bird, was Phil Barnard. just pipping Tim Jones for the championship. Amelia Smith was the Ladies’ winner and the Colts’ was won by Ethan Lord. There is no trophy for this one, but he still gets the badge to keep. Well shot all, and thanks to CGC for looking after us once again. (Scores to follow when CPSA publish them)
I have just received a
letter of resignation from our Chairman Allan Wright, resigning from both the
position of Chairman and his place on the committee.
Allan has been
considering his position carefully since before last Christmas, and has made
the decision to stand down.
I spoke with Allan on
the telephone after receiving his letter, and again would like to thank him on
behalf of everyone, for his many years of service and dedication to the
Cambridgeshire CPSA, and on behalf of all the shooters that he cares about with
Tim Jones has stepped in as interim Chairman so please address all relevant enquiries through him.
