Herts Clubs Teams Challenge Shield

The afternoon team competition now synonymous with the new seasons opening County shoot was again very well attended, with teams representing five County clubs. We welcomed North Herts Rifles a new club recently formed in the county which is a rare event these days.

Tradition dictated that the previous winner organises the shoot and 2011 belonged to WPRC, so it was with pleasure that we again provided the necessary services this year.

Teams of six, shooting 2&10 over 300 and 600 yards was the format and we were yet again blessed with a beautiful spring afternoon with light but tricky winds. All teams had turned out with a full compliment of six shooters, again a rare event, so we were able to compete on a more level basis which is much preferred.

Some excellent scoring was achieved and a solid team performance at 300 yards dropping only nine points underpinned a win by a margin of 12 over Watford. Top Gun of the afternoon to take the individual prize was Chris Fopp from OB’s as the only ‘clean man’ on the range with an impressive 100.7


Team results were as follows:

Welwyn Phoenix 577.41 Colin Skellett 99.12
Watford 565.31 Andy Daw 98.9
Old Haberdashers 524.40 Dick Winney 95.9
Old Berkhamstedians 493.29 Chris Fopp 100.7
North Herts Rifles 456.16 Ian Ashworth 90.9
