For a number of years, Cambridgeshire has awarded a trophy for the best shooter aggregated across the different disciplines. This year, the committee has decided to change the rules to encourage more shooters to take part
New Rules for the Cambridgehire CPSA Supreme Champion
The annual competition for Supreme Cambridgeshire County Champion will be held over nine qualifying County Championship events held in that year namely:
- English Sporting
- All Round
- English Skeet
- Skeet Doubles
- Down the line
- Single Barrel
- Automatic Ball Trap
- Double Rise
The six best scores of each competitor are taken into account. Scores will be recorded on a kills-to-count basis as recorded on the CPSA website. Any qualifying event shot over less than or more than 100 targets will be recorded as a percentage.
In the event of tied scores, the winner will be the person who had achieved the highest number of championship wins. If this process still results in a tie, the number of each competitor’s second place scores will be used and this process will, where necessary, be repeated with third place scores until there is an outright winner.
Every County shooter competing in the Supreme Championship will also be entered into a category:
So that first place awards in the categories can be made. Awards for first place in category will be decided over any six of the nine qualifying championship events listed above. The definition of each category is as set-out in the general rules of the CPSA, except that, for the purposes of this competition,
a Lady is defined as being a female over 21 years of age at the time of shooting any of the qualifying events.
Also for the purpose of this competition,
a Lady Colt or Lady Junior can opt to shoot in the Ladies category so long as written notice is given to the Committee prior to their first qualifying shoot.
A Senior is a male of over 21 and less than 60 years of age at the time of shooting any of the qualifying events.
Scores for first in category will be recorded on a kills-to-count basis as set-out above in relation to the overall Supreme Championship, and, in the event of a tie, the winner will be determined as set-out above in relation to the overall Supreme Championship. The award of overall Supreme Champion will make that person ineligible for a category award.
It will be the responsibility of each shooter to check that his or her scores are correct and to report the discrepancy as soon as possible to the County Secretary Karen@cambridgeshirecpsa.co.uk for correction. The Supreme Champion Trophy is a perpetual trophy. Category awards will be annual. The Supreme Championship trophy and the category awards will be presented at the AGM.
