Hi folks, well we are off again with a very busy weekend and today
the 17th March it’s the very much looked forward to Cambridgeshire DTL
Well the day started as it meant to carry on with changing light
and very blustery winds, but that didn’t stop Matt Sheldrake and last
year’s Champion going at it hammer and tongs again, but this year we had a
reversal of last year’s results when Paul came out on top as County Champion
and Matt was Senior Champ. This year Matt shot 98/288 enough to take the
title for 2019 with Paul finishing with 98/286 and the Senior title. This
was very good shooting in this weather and I guess at any time, and with 46 entries
this year it was not a push over by any means.
So we have our Champ Matt Sheldrake 98/288
Senior Paul Ward 98/ 286
Ladies Amelia Smith 86/248.
Vets Richard Croft 95/ 262
Colts Samuel Halls 96/256
AA Richard Morris 88/253
A Steve Eley 94/278
B Corbie Barnard 97 /284
(well shot Corbie)
C Marcus Lord 92/275
Well shot folks in very hard trying conditions, and many thanks to Cambridge GC for their hospitality. For full set of scores on the national CPSA website see here.
testing 100 targets on a very windy day. So windy in fact that I had a
job to get the door open on my car, but that didn’t worry the shooters from
Herts/ Essex / and Cambridgeshire. At the end of the day our top shot and
county Champion was Graham Carter with an 86. That was one better than
Paul Ward and Peter Waller both having put in 85’s and awaiting a shoot off to
find out who was to be Champ. However, this was not to be after Grahams
85, but they still had a shoot off to decide the Vets title. Peter Waller
came out on top by 1 target so takes home the Vets Shield.
Champion Ashley Smith who seems to be a trophy magnet this year.
Well done folks
and many thanks to Nuthampstead for your hospitality
This was another windy and wet affair but it didn’t stop the Cambridgeshire faithful from turning up to have a go at some very testing targets. At the end of the day our 2018 county DTL Champion made it look easy posting an 85, very good in the conditions of the day, but it went right to the wire with Darren Stanford coming in with an 82. The Vets was very tight with 2 shooters on 80 Richard Croft and Peter Simpson count back had to be used as both shooters had left the ground so Richard Croft came out on top, for the second year in a row.
Well folks the first of our County Championships took part this weekend the 3rd of March. Well it could have been a better day weatherwise and after the last few weeks it was a big let down, but nevertheless it was a good turn out at Eriswell SG for our English Skeet Championship. Some very good shooting took place and as it worked out the early morning squads were the winners with the weather; they got a bit wet but missed the big winds. For full report and scores see here
