7th Nov 2021: Today was the Cambridgeshire Skeet Doubles Championship at Eriswell Lodge shooting ground.
Another well run shoot and we would like to thank all the staff and the referees for today.
The wind, cold and lack of sun in the afternoon made the targets quite a challenge. The master of skeet, Peter Cook is this year’s Skeet Doubles Champion with 85. Close behind was the Veterans Winner – Roger Fletcher 83 and Senior Mens was Phil Barnard 83.
Winner of the Rabbit Skeet Pool Shoot was Marcus Lord with 23/25 Joint Second was Corbie Barnard and S Page on 21/25.
This was our last Cambridgeshire shoot for 2021 and we will be working to get dates for next years shoots as soon as possible.
Great Result for Team Cambridgeshire at the Inter-Counties ABT Competition at Nottingham Gun Club.

A massive achievement for Ross Elgie, Richard King and David Roling for all shooting 100/100, with David Roling winning the shoot off.
A further congratulations to:
Yorkshire for winning the Senior Team Cambridgeshire for winning the Veteran Team Cheshire for winning the Ladies Team Hampshire for winning the Juniors Team
I would on a personal level like to congratulate Tim Jones and Peter Cook who took the Veterans Trophy for the second year in a row…. well shot both of you.
Also many thanks to Albert Taylor, James Yarrow, Gary Thatcher and Bob Eagle for competing for the Seniors Team with myself and all shot very well but were unlucky to not take the title this year. It was very difficult this year to even muster the two teams and many many thanks to those above for making the effort to travel to Bisley and shoot for the County, you guys all deserve a medal as far as I am concerned.

Today (Sunday 22nd August), Cambs were at The Priory for the Double Rise. Most shot theirs this morning before ‘shooting’ across to Northampton. Last squad was at 1pm. Weather was quite dreary. Overcast for the most part, not too windy. The Priory did a fab job of catering for our shoot as well as holding a skeet competition.
The results are as follows:
A terrific 85
Congratulations to our winners and a big thanks to those who took the time to shoot. Our massive thanks to Natasha at The Priory, for holding the competition.
So that’s the Single Barrel for another year done and dusted
Thanks go to Priory CTC for holding it for us again,
It was a fair day for the Fens a little bit of a breeze on the odd occasion, but grey clouds are all around us and every now and again just a slight bit of misty rain. But not as bad as forecast for the day.
93 (on countback)
Both E Lord and H Whiten also managed to win at the East Midlands DTL held at Northampton today – well done both.
Also thanks for all who shot today to support Cambridgeshire.
