Fifteen shooters turned out for the 2nd round of the Bowen Family sponsored English Skeet league which took place on Easter Sunday, there was also the Stan Cross Easter High Gun Cup and the George Costain Easter Handicap Cup to shoot for, and these were shot over 50 targets. There was also the Colin Bowen Memorial Team Event where teams were drawn out of the hat this was shot over 100 targets. The condition were dry but blustery at times making the targets unpredictable.
The leader after the first round was B Class shooter Madeline Simpson on an excellent 24 closely followed by three shooters on 23 these being Stan Cross, Paul Mihailovits, and John Moore. When the second round scores were in we had an out right Winner in Stan Cross on 47 ex 50 thus giving Stan the High Gun Cup. In the handicap section it was a close call between Madeline Simpson and relatively new comer Roman Sammer, Roman came out on top by two point to take the George Costain Handicap Cup.
All entries are in and we’re able to confirm the squads for this Saturday’s annual Hospice charity shoot. Please check your times and arrive at least 20 minutes early to help us keep things smooth and promote this worthy cause.

The first leg of the Utopia sponsored English Skeet league took place a Meary Veg in Santon. We had a good turnout of 22 competitors in sunny but cold conditions, with the sun affecting many of the competitors when they took to the first stand.
The leaders after the first round of 25 targets were Junior Joe Faragher and Veteran John Moore with 24 closely followed by Paul Mihailovits on 23 with another three competitors tying on 22. After a well-deserved hot drink and a sausage bap the squads went out again to shoot their final round, with four 24’s being posted.
Paul Mihailovits (47)
Giulio Fabrizio (46)
Dave Corlett, John Moore (45)
