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.
