Universal Trench – 16th March – Nuthampstead

Another very 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.

Young Shots 2018

Cambridgeshire CPSA, in conjunction with Cambridge Gun Club, are delighted to announce  their new Young Shots Programme. This new programme is designed for youngsters, with a keen interest in shooting (but maybe lacking experience), to gain training and experience across a number of disciplines. The idea is to provide support, mentoring and tuition to increase the number of youngsters entering our sport, and shooting for Cambridgeshire ….. and maybe even go as far as intercounty or national competitions. Who knows maybe we’re already looking at our future Commonwealth Games or Olympic champions!

Young Shots February 2018

The first intake for February 2018 are (from L>R) Henry Sperring, Sam Halls, Daniel Wareing, Oscar Jarvis, Alice Wareing, Ethan Lord and Finlay Watson. [Photo provided by Cambridge GC with parental consent]

Good luck to you all and we’re looking forward to hearing about your progress and achievements in the future.
