Lincolnshire Helice County Championship September 22nd 2019

It was a day of many variants of weather sun, rain and wind as we held the second Lincolnshire Helice County Championship and when we had rain  the light became very poor, but we still had some great scores!

Junior Alex Horton won the County and Junior Championship 20 x 24  Congratulations Alex very well shot and great to see a junior taking the championship.

Jackie Houghton Ladies County Champion 13 x 24.

Trevor Hawkins Senior County Champion 19 x 24

Marvin Houghton Veterans County Champion 18 x 24

Richard Gray Super Veteran 16 x 24 

Great shooting and congratulations to you all. 


Ben Killian 23 x 24

Wayne Killian 22 x 24

Andy Stratford & Alistair Williams 21 x 24

Well done to all a lot of high scores considering the poor light as time went on and the varying wind, but congratulations must go to Junior Ben Killian shooting 23 x 24 (beating his Dad by one target!) and the one that got away he hit first barrel only to have the witness drop over the fence. It really is fantastic to see a  junior shooting so well and leading the way against shooters that have been taking part in (what some would say) this the most difficult form of shotgun shooting for many years. Ben along with Jonti Spilman and Ben Dingley will be heading out to Rome next week to represent GBR in the World Helice Championships as our Junior team. We wish all the shooters in our GBR teams heading out to Italy the very best of luck and to all the shooters taking part hope you have a great trip a bring back lots of medals. 

Once again many thanks for your support of our shooting ground, never taken for granted and very much appreciated.
