SHOOT REPORTS

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!

Joint High Gun in competition:

Jonti Spilman, Howard Batt  & Marcus Iddon 22x 24 

Phil Negus 22 x 24 B/O

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.

Note: Shoot on May 19th has been CANCELLED

Lincolnshire County UT Championship May 6th 2019

East Midlands Helice Area & Inter Championship 28/4/19

A great day with 8 squads turning out for the first East Midlands Area & Inter Counties Helice Championships

 

 

 

 

 

We were pleased to be asked to to hold this championship, it was a fair day and five teams from the counties to shoot the event. 

Great shooting from many shooters with Marcus Iddon shooting  a perfect 24 x 24 Birds Only 

Junior Connor Harris 23x24 BO shooting Helice for the first time, missed his first bird out then went on to shoot the next 23! Fantastic shooting Connor.

John Lucy 23/24 great shooting John, close on his heels were:

Steve Cole, Kevin Flitton & Mal Grant 21x24 

Ben Dingley, Phil Negus 21x24 BO

Kelly Johnson (Suffolk) won the Ladies East Midlands Area Championship 21x24

Very well done to you all.

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.

LINCOLNSHIRE ABT COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP APRIL 21st 2019

Well what a difference a week can made to our weather, today we enjoyed beautiful blue skies, very little wind and really lovely and warm sunshine. We had a fantastic 10 squads for our shoot today, so it was a busy day, but great shooting with a Junior taking High Gun with 97!

Selection Shoot for European Helice Championship 2019

               Sunday March 24th 2019

We held a Selection Shoot for Helice European 2019 Championships to be held in Sicily at the beginning of  June. We had a very welcome touch of spring back again this weekend, which was nice for the 9 squads of shooters taking part, although the wind succeeded in taking quite a few birds over the fence!

High Gun: 

Marcus Iddon with the perfect 24/24 absolutely fantastic shooting Marcus, what a way to start the new Helice season!

Hot on his heels were:

Andy LLoyd 21/24 (competition)

John Foy 21/24 (BO)

Glyn Barker 21/24 (BO)

Tim Rickard 21/24 (BO)

Great shooting lads and I'm sure you are all looking forward to see what this season brings.

Colt/Junor Top Gun was:

Ben Killian 20/24 great shooting Ben.

Great to see so many of our helice friends and some new faces at the club this weekend enjoying their shooting and very many thanks to all who helped during the shoot and those that stayed behind to help clear up at the end of the day. We know a lot of you have a long drive home and the fact that you still stay and help is very much appreciated.

NEXT SHOOT: APRL 14th 2019 UT DERBYSHIRE,  HEREFORD & WORCESTER COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIP 

 

 

 

                     THE VICTOR LUDORUM TROPHY 

Although this is not something that we ourselves have done at the club, but we think it's a fantastic idea and of interest to quite a few of our Helice shooters. A group shooters have got together to give shooters that have Not ever represented GB in Helice encouragement and something to aim for whilst they climb that steep hill of the rankings. A framed Million Euro note is given to the top Non GB shooter at each selection shoot and now a VERY Large Magnificent Trophy has been added as you will see from the photo!  This trophy will be given at the end of the season to the top NON GB shooter who has accumulated the most points.

Tim Rickard bought the trophy and Kevin Tyler supplied a new base and John Foy and Phil Negus have chipped in,  so its  now a four way committee. How welcome is it to have a group of lads looking to encourge those shooters that might or might not ever get their GB badge, but can now look forward to hopefully winning this Trophy, although they will need to do a bit of body building to carry it and a strong shelf to exhibit it on! 

PS: For those of you that haven't studied or have forgotten what they did learn in latin, the name stands for 'The winner of the Games' 

According to wikipedia! 

 

 

 

 

ABT Open Shoot March 17th 2019

TESTING CONDITIONS!

A very brave 8 squads of shooters turned out for our March ABT shoot and goodness the cold wintery weather that greeted them was certainly testing their skills thats for sure. The windy weather  made some clays completely unpredictable. 

We only had one 25 straight on the day which was Junior Joe Tune, very well done Joe in those conditions that was incredible shooting!

High Gun: RAY SUTTON 92/100 great shooting Ray 

We had 3 SHOOTERS TIE ON 90/100  NIGEL CAVES -  CHRIS TATE & JOE TUNE

Universal Trench Open Shoot

 

Well from a couple of weeks ago when it seemed  spring had arrived at Crick, today winter has returned with a vengeance!  It was extremely cold with high winds, but we still had a fantstic 8 squads turn out to test their skills against the elements. A fair amount of cloud made the light conditions rather poor. In spite of the awful weather High Gun Dick Fletton shot a fantastic 92 x 100  with 2 x 24's and the only shooter to get into the 90's. Phil Rowley and Peter Waller were fighting to catch up on 85 x 100. Very well done to you all and really well done to all who turned up to shoot in these poor conditions.

Many thanks to our loyal supporters who visit us on a regular basis make our club what it is and to any new shooters welcome and hope you enjoy your shooting with us.

We had a rather misty and overcast day with a bit of drizzle thrown in, but it did nothing to spoil the great atmosphere for our last shoot of 2018 and in which we celebrated 30 years of running the club. We decided to do something a little different and the Trap fest was a great success, in fact we had to stop taking entries at 9 squads to make sure everyone shot before the light fell as it does so quickly at this time of the year.

         One of our shooters Graham Wainwright of GW Shooting Services very kindly donated a High Gun Prize of a Baikal Single Barrel Shotgun.

2nd Prize  Fletcher Watson  4 free shoot entries (b/o)

West Midlands Area & Derbyshire Helice Championship

Today we held the West Midlands & Derbyshire Helice Area Championship that had been cancelled last month due to the weather forecasters putting out a dreadful forecast of hurricane winds, which proved to be absolutely wrong, however you have to do what you think is right at the time. As we have a busy schedule through the year we had to slot this shoot in on a Saturday.

We had 23 shooters and an enjoyable day, although the wind direction played havoc with some of the birds, Brain Ward being the most unfortunate shooter with quite a few over the fence!

We thank you and appreciate your continued support of our club
