AREA 9 POSTAL SHOOT

Some of you will be familiar with this!  Over the winter months, Area 9 (ie Fred) runs a shooting competition, with 2 targets shot each month between Nov – Feb and returned to me for scoring by post.  Obviously, we have the luxury of not having to post them!

The competition is usually shot at Branch/Centre shooting practices, but can be shot at home if necessary.  Turning or static targets can be used.

Branch teams can be made from any 3 or 4 members from same Branch, irrespective of gender or age/Class.  The best 3 overall scores in the Team will count. There will be rosettes for top 10 teams and top 6 individuals in each class.

 If you shoot 1,000 in any month, you will get a gun case sticker.

Let Fred Church  fm.ej.church@btinternet.com   know if you want to join in.  And get together and form some teams!

ELMS TET AND TRI – GREAT RESULTS

A great time and very good results, with rosettes for every one of our 6 competitors at the Elms School Tet & Tri last Sunday.  With a total of 190 competitors, there was strong competition in every class.

U-8 Tet.  Oliver Vigors had a super beanbag throw, finishing 2nd with 900 points, and followed it up with a lovely clear round and a good run to finish 3rd overall and in the 3rd-placed mixed team.

Tadpole Girls.  A winning swim and another great clear round set Cecily Townrow up for a fine 12th place in a very strong field. Her mixed team was 4th.  A photo of Cecily and Ash is below.

Tadpole Boys.  A win for the OBH team of Bert and Arthur Souter and Harry Vigors, with Bert also taking the individual win and first in the shoot.  Good running and swimming saw Arthur finishing 6th overall and Harry 7th.  All 3 boys rode fine clear rounds.

Mini Girls.  A super 4th place for Hester Cadle her first Triathlon, with 3rd in the swim.  Her mixed team came second.    

Very well done all!
