Welwyn Phoenix score again in County Events
Two Hertfordshire County events were again staged as season openers in 2008 to encourage a good turnout from participating County Clubs. WPRC were well represented in both.
County Captains Day – Morning, 16th March 2008
This competition for individual shooters is run under handicap conditions encouraging emerging talent to shoot against the more experienced. Often it is found that experience will influence the result particularly if early season conditions of high winds and rain make the going more difficult. WPRC fielded three competitors in the group of 10 shooters.
Not faring quite as well as in the previous two years when we took first place, Colin Skellett and Nick Verduyn managed to produce a rare tie for 3rd place.
County Clubs Challenge Shield – Afternoon, 16th March – Team competition
Following on from the morning shoot, three County Clubs assembled for the afternoon Challenge Shield. With the top 4 scores to count at one distance only, due to target problems, WPRC retained the trophy for the third consecutive year.
WPRC 189.15 (A.Bullen, A. Skellett, C. Skellett, N. Verduyn)
Old Haberdashers 187.13
Watford & District 183.12<
