Shooting Weekend 6/7 Sep – Results

On Sat the Club shot in perfect shooting conditions. The wind was light and variable but could drift from left to right to make life interesting for both teams. Apart from newcomers, shooters from both teams chose to shoot in pairs. With the Club’s new Captain, Clive Smith, being the Captain for Cambridgeshire, he transferred responsibility for selecting the RAFTRC’s teams to Brian Jones. It was a good turnout from the Club and Brian duly selected 3 teams. The result of the Match shot under Empire conditions with teams of 5 was:


1st – RAFTRC White960.92, Top Shot Mick Silver 197.17

2nd – RAFTRC Blue 923.80, Top Shot Jon Ford 194.21

3rd – Cambridgeshire 892.65, Top Shot Mike Gregory 196.20

4th – RAFTRC Red 785.36, Top Shot Andy Nibblet 172.06


On Sun the weather remained favourable for shooters and the RAFTRC match against the London and Middlesex Rifle Association. The Match was shot alongside the Bisley Clubs competition with a 2ss+20 @ 300x and 600x and 2ss+15 @ 900x a max total of 175 per shooter. This year the Match was won by the RAFTRC helped by a splendid shoot by Brian Jones who, after dropping a point at 300x, went clean to the end and this was a pairs self coached shoot. The result of the Match, Teams of 8, was:
