Cambridgshire Olympic Skeet Championship

Priory Shooting Ground, 2nd April 2017

This year for the first time it was being held at Priory Shooting Ground at Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire.

 Not a shoot for the faint hearted, it takes a special type of dedication as with most Olympic disciplines. We have just that type of person in Cambridgeshire in Freddy Killander. The proof if you need any, is to look at the averages in “Pull” at the start of the year.
10 Cambridgeshire Shooters had booked in – well 11 if you count me, but I didn’t feel up to it so called off. 21 shooters in total, a very good entry for this shoot. It was also the East Midlands and Notts Championships. The Notts shooters found something else to do on the day and so were a no show.
Some Cambs shooters shot early and had gone by the time I arrived on the ground, but I was in time to watch Freddy in action and that was well worth the journey . He also had 4 other Cambs shooters on his squad including the skeet manager for this year, Don Green, without whom I doubt if we would have had such a good turnout as he worked hard to get them to attend. Don also did what he does best by entertaining the shooters taking part.
As expected Freddy shot very well, not just taking the Cambs Championship, but also the East Midlands – and not for the first time I might add. The next squad out included Philip Smith who took the County Vets title, as he did last year. Most of our shooters enjoyed the shoot, the ground was well run and is well worth a visit. Thanks to all at the Priory.
