SHOOT REPORTS

Warwickshire & Oxfordshire ABT Championship

                                        Sunday August 18th 

A mixture of sunshine and cloud made visibilty difficult at times, but made for interesting shooting. Even with the changing light we had  many shooters putting in great scores.

High Gun: Ray Sutton 95 x100  Well done Ray, a consistant top scorer!

Runners up : Giovanni  Russo and David O'Donnell 91x100

Warwickshire County Champion: Jonti Spilman- 90 x 100

Congratulations to all the winners. Its good to see the younger shooters doing well, Jonti is one of younger Warwickshire shooters winning Colt Championship and Warwickshire County Championship, very well done Jonti, who has over the past year or so been on the podium many times including his first time shooting for the GB Helice Team in Sicily at the European Championships winning a gold medal along with Fletcher and Jenson King  and individual silver. Its great to see the younger shooters doing so well against strong teams from abroad and we have a lot of talented young shooters entering our shoots.

Many thanks to all our shooters for your loyal support of our club, we appreciate it very much. Apologies for the lateness of this report we are having major issues with our website that the provider doesn't seem to be able to sort out, frustrating is not in it!

STAFF UT COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP JULY 28th 2019

Sunday the 28th was like mid winter, after the hottest day on record two days before it was a nasty cold wet day with the wind pushing the targets on and visibility declining all the time, we had 7 squads turn out to shoot the

Staffordshire UT County Championship.

Joint High Gun: Jamie Sutton & Dick Fletton 95 x 100

Runner up Ray Sutton 94 x 100 close on their heels were Mark Wright & John Lucy b/0 both on 93

Some great shooting in the unseasonal weather conditions and very well done to the winners and we look forward to seeing you all again at our shooting ground sometime soon. Sorry no photo's of the winners, the weather was so bad and everyone went off before we could get them on camera!  If you have won a trophy last year, please remember to return it for this years winner to be able to take it home with them on the day of the championship shoot.

               WEST MIDLANDS AREA, INTER COUNTIES & HEREFORD & WORCESTER HELICE CHAMPIONSHIPS JULY 14th 2019

We were pleased to hold the above championships, although was an overcast day,  it did brighten up later with a little wind. Five squads took part and we had some fantastic shooting and yet another thrilling shoot off - becoming a bit of a tradition in our Helice shoots and that always adds to the excitment of the day!

Star of the day was Paul Bailey winning West Midands Area Championship and overall High Gun 23/24

Paul is one of our wheelchair shooters who is now able to use our updated facilities and makes visiting the club easier and more enjoyable, as it is for all our shooters who have a disability. In recent times we had the car park tarmaced and the walkway which is so much better to access the shooting layouts and then this year we had the ladies toilet altered to accommodate wheelchairs and anybody with mobility difficulties.

Seven shooters were in for Silver and bronze placings, Matt Bodfish, Stu Burgess, Marcus Iddon, Jonti Spilman, Ben Killian, Wayne Killian and Ben Dingley (B/o) all on 22 x 24 

See below for all results and very well done to all the winners! 

Special thanks to Inchcape Jaguar/Landrove who very kindly sponsored the superb new perpetual West Midlands Area Helice Team Trophy and many thanks to their representative - Kirk for bringing one of their vehicles along and being kind enough to stay and present the trophies at the end of the shoot. Also many thanks to Marcus Iddon for getting this sponsorship.

Many thanks to all the people that helped to make the day run smoothly and  Nicky and Andy Lloyd for taking the photo's. To all who stayed  behind to help pick up the broken targets and put equipment away, thank you so much, we really do appreciate all the help that we are given. 

                UT OPEN SHOOT JULY 7th 2019

                                    2019 ENGLISH HELICE CHAMPIONSHIP & 1st WORLD HELICE SELECTION SHOOT MAY 26th

Well after a few days of lovely sunshine and very little wind how it can change overnight! Sunday turned out to be mild and in the afternoon we did see some sunshine  but it was the stiff wind that played havoc thoughout the day,  with the targets and many first barrell kills sailing on well over the fence. Very frustrating for many shooters, but we saw some great shooting considering the conditions.

                       English Helice Champion 2019 - Gareth Stanford Iddon 20 x 24 + 7  B/O after a shoot off with Andy Lloyd 20 x 24 + 6

Very many thanks to the referees Donovan Jenkins, Wayne Killian and Andrew Oakey.

Also many thanks to all that helped in picking up the spent broken targets and to Stuart King, Howard Batt and Amanda for helping to clear up at the very end of the day. We appreciate all the help that you give us and it really does make a big difference particularly at the end of a long and busy day.

                                     LEICESTER & RUTLAND HELICE COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP MAY 12th 2019

A lovely warm sunny day with good visability making it a great day for shooting Helice. We held the Leicester & Rutland Helice County  Championship, but very disappointing turn out from these counties with only two shooters entering, no ladies or juniors and sad to see so many medals, trophies and badges going unclaimed. 

Jason Linnell took the Championship with a score of 18/24  well done Jason.

In the open shoot we had some great shooting with Alan Rowley shooting a perfect 24x 24 B/O and 23 of those with first barrel kills, really fantastic shooting Alan!

Well done to you all and congratulations to Phil and  Jonti who have been selected for the first time as a member of the Helice GBR Team for the upcoming European Helice Championships in Sicily in June. I think anyone who has had the privilege of representing the county will agree it is indeed a great honour.

Good luck to all the shooters going out to Sicily.

Thank you for your loyal support of our club and many thanks to you all for helping to pick up at the end of the shoot, it is very much appreciated.

We are sure everyone must be delighted with the sponsorship in the form of fantastic trophies and other prizes that Donovan Jenkin managed to put together, its not easy getting sponsorship theses days, but Donovan certainly did really well and was the main driving force behind getting these championships of the ground. The work you put into this shoot made for a really good event, which hopefully will go on to become an annual event. Great work Donovan!

As always many thanks to all the shooters that took part for their loyal support of our shooting ground and welcome to the new shooters who were visiting for the first time, we hope to see you all again soon.

 

Disabled Shooters Group Trap fest 24/4/19

Every Wednesday we hold a practice shoot for UT or ABT and we were asked by Alex a member of the Disabled ShootersGroup, if we would hold a Trap Fest for them on a Wednesday,  so that their members could have a go at shooting all of the three disciplines, to try something different.

There were about 12 shooters from the group turned up and what fun they had and we have had some great feed back from them. It is a pleasure to be able to put something like this on and to see the lads putting in some fantastic scores. On the Helice section we had two shooters on 9 x 10, after shoot off Neil 9 + 4 took High gun and Marco 9 + 3,  3rd  Reuben 8 x 10. The lads just wanted it as a fun day so there are no ABT & UT scores shown.

We look forward to welcoming DSG again in the future, it was a great atmoshere and good sportmanship and great to see our new facilities of the new car park and disabled toilet making life easier for them. Thank you to all who have sent emails since the shoot, they are very much appreciated.

Celebrating 30 years!

As this is our 30th year since we started the club, we thought it would be good to celebrate and share our celebrations with our shooters. So we are holding a Christmas Trap Fest, all the details on the poster. We wanted to do something that all shooters stood the same chance of winning, so anyone taking part in our Christmas shoots will be entered into the draw and the three names will be selected at random on December 23rd 2018.

Look forward to seeing you at the ground and good luck!
