Paul James British Recoiling Championship 2018

The Paul James British recoiling Championships 2018 has broken three new records, the foggiest, the snowiest and the highest scoring. The event gets better and better every year an event not to be missed.
Although the weather had turned some distance shooters away there was still a very good turn out.

This year saw a new competition within the event Silhouettes, this consisted of four racks of targets varying in size and shape with 5 targets on each rack. This was won by Dave Thomlinson after a shoot off between Andy Pearson both scoring 16.

Also a new side shoot which I can see being awarded a trophy to the winner next year after it being such a hit with everyone a ten target spring Pistol shoot. I’m not sure who won this but much fun was had by all even though most of us missed all the targets, I think the highest being 4.?

The main event was fantastic, the course and weather were very well matched as the course wasn’t the hardest I’d seen from past experience but combine with the very foggy condition a nice balance…Well done the course setters.

One chap I’ve got to feel sorry for and that’s Phil Hollis putting in a mighty 37/40 only missing 3 and would have any other time won the competition easy, if it wasn’t for super human John Amos winning the day with 38/40 only missing two. Top shooting John well done, the new British Recoiling Champion (Hall of Fame)

HFT Winner was first time visitor Daniel Gordon, SFT Winner After Shoot Off with Andy Calpin Graham Cooper…. well done both of you.

Looking forward to next years event already and congratulations to everyone who helped raise £2,567.94 this year!

FFTA Winter League Round 8 Broadlands 2018

Final round Broadlands ARC and it was all to play for, Broadlands with the advantage leading with one point and on home ground. MidShires Marksmen in second place with 43 points and Hereward FT & ARC with 42 points, this has been a very close winter league.

Conditions on the day was cold just below 0* with a light breeze to light gusty switching winds, which for me lost me a lot of points. The course master was David Elvin I believe and this year we used another part of the ground most of us had never seen before, containing two lanes one of which had two challenging standing targets set high in the trees….Nice one David.

Broadlands won the day with Hereward coming second and MidShires third making Broadlands the overall winners of the FFTA W/L 2018… Well Done.!
Also well done to Simon Ayers for winning the main round with a 28/30.
