Cambridgeshire ABT 2024

10th March 2024, Nuthampstead Shooting Ground

We were greeted with some foul weather for our second Cambridgeshire Shoot of the season – 100 ABT at Nuthampstead Shooting ground on Sunday – and it didn’t ease up all day. 

Despite the weather conditions however, 13 Cambridge shooters took on the challenge and after some fine shooting Philip Barnard once again came away with the ABT Championship Trophy. Scoring 91 ex 100, Jane Bell shot well to win the ladies trophy with a 77 and Gary Thatcher took the Veterans’ and Mens’ title with an 89. 

We had no juniors or colts shooting the competition his time, perhaps next year some young shooters will take up the challenge?

Our collective thanks go to the team at Nuthamsptead for looking after us all so well and keeping us dry.

Cambridgeshire ABT 2023

Hi all! Well that’s the first of the shoots done for this year – the ABT was held at Nuthampstead SG last Sunday – the 12th of March 2023. The weather was fair for this time of year; a little on the cool side with the wind freshening up as the day went on. Some reasonable scores were coming in from all he squads, just the odd targets getting away from most people. Overall the scores were very close all the way through the day, with most trophy winners being decided on the last round. There were 12 squads for the day as we were twinned with Essex and Herts, which made for a good day all round with good attendance.

Thanks to Ed and the team for some great targets, and to Nicky for helping to arrange the shoots for us and being in charge of the kitchen.

Cambridgeshire ABT

The Cambridgeshire ABT held on the 1/10/17 this was held at Cambridge Gun Club, This was a hard fought battle and didn’t sort itself out until the later stages of the day. Only 4 targets separated the top 5 shooters at the end of the day but the top man was Chris Morris with a 93 The runner up on 91 Philip Barnard even shot a 20 to help Chris on his way.  Only one 25 straight was recorded and that was by a previous Cambridgeshire Shooter Paul Neal just to show he doesn’t just do DTL.

Well shot Chris again.
