Walker takes the High Road

Winter All-Round

The Winter All Round kindly sponsored by Strand Vets was held at Meary Veg Santon with 25 competitors taking part in near ideal conditions.

The leader after the DTL and English skeet sections which were both been shot at the same time was trap shooter Mike Walker with 146 points mainly down to him hitting his maiden 25 straight in English skeet. In second place on 141 was Paul Mihailovits with Mark Barnett in third place on 134, Mark having the best round of DTL with a 25/74 straight, John Moore was in fourth place on 133 with the leading B class shooters Will Rand and junior Joe Faragher next on 125. Leading C class at this stage was Andre Visnjov on 122 with lady shooter Irene Stockil in second place in C on 111.

The Pro Sporting layout which was shot from the high bank had some very good targets on it and once all had shot we had the following results. In C class Mike Whitehead was in third place on 149 with Andre Visnjov taking second place on 158 but winning C class with 162 points was lady shooter Irene Stockil. We had a tie for second place in B class between junior Joe Faragher and Dave Corlett on 182 but winning B class with 188 points was Will Rand. John Moore was third in A class on 187 with Mark Barnett taking second place on 188 and winning A class with 195 was Paul Mihailovits, but the performance of the day has to go to Mike Walker who was the only shooter to stay in the twenties and break the two hundred barrier to win the Winter all Round with a grand total of 205 – well done Mike!

The prizes at the end were presented by Andre Visnjov of Strand Vets. A big thank you to all that made it a very good shoot.
