HRA Captains Day and Teams Challenge Shield – 3rd April 2016
This traditional opener to the Hertfordshire County shooting season provides two competitions. An individual Captains Day event is run in the morning under a Queens I course of fire but using a handicapped format to encourage shooters of all ability to enter. The Captains Day prize is given to the competitor with the highest handicapped score and a prize for the best gun score is also up for grabs.
As usual WPRC fielded a very respectable 8 entrants (more than half the entire entry) in the individual morning competition. Despite the handicapping system used to ‘level the playing field’, our own Colin Skellett, County Captain, won his own Prizes with a magnificent 105.11 and cleaned up the handicap trophy along with a nice bottle of Malt for best gun score.
“Its a fix”, shouted the fifteen competitors. We however hoped that Colin liked the winners bottle to warm him up after the match, but for the rest of us it had been a cold morning, with a slight mirage that helped shooters stay in the bull and the scores reflected with six shooters over the hundred mark.
