Barnetts in Handicap Shoot-Off

Pro Sporting, Round 2

The second round of the Pam and Dave Corlett Pro Sporting league was held at Meary Veg, Santon, with 22 competitors taking part in wet and very misty conditions making setting targets difficult. We had the added incentive of the Pam & Dave Corlett Highgun and the Meary Veg Handicap cups up for grabs also.

With both ranges being used at the same time we did not have a half way leader board but at the end of the two rounds Brain Kelly and Chris Workman finished in equal second  place in C class on 25 points with lady shooter Nicky Barnett taking C class with 32 points. In B class George Davies was third on 37 with John Moore taking second place in B on 38 but winning B class with 39 points was Brian Faragher. We had a three way tie for third place in A class with Stan Cross, Rob Corlett and Paul Mihailovits all scoring 40 points, in second place in A was Mark Barnet on 42 but top of the class with 47 points and winning the Pam & Dave Corlett High gun cup was Michael Cross who hit a 25 straight in his second round. We had to have a shoot off for the handicap cup between husband and wife Mark and Nicky Barnet with Mark taking the bragging rights by one point from Nicky.
