Cambs Double Rise 2021

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:

Cambridgeshire Single Barrel 2021

Hi all,

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.

County ChampionPhil Barnard93 (on countback)

Veterans’T Jones83
Ladies’H Whiten72
Colts’E Lord77

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.

Cambridgeshire AGM Postponed!

Due to the current government guidelines and the uncertainty concerning the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, the Cambridgeshire CPSA has taken the difficult decision to postpone the Annual General Meeting until later in the year.

Whilst we appreciate this is short notice, we believe this is the right and responsible action to take, for the safety of our shooters and their families during this exceptional time.

We will provide further updates as soon as the government guidelines are updated and will advise on the revised date for for the Annual General Meeting.

Thank you in advance for your patience.
