Nick wins the Day
Nick Mullins (5th Sussex HG) managed to master the variable conditions and came out top in A Class with a magnificent score of 594 ex 600. The threatened wind and rain just about held off until after shooting finished on both days but that didn't mean the conditions were easy.
Sue Kirk (Tunbridge Wells & St Peters) came 2nd with 586. There was a 3 way tie on 585 for 3rd place with Adam Cornbill (Southwick) making the cut on countback.
This year the match attracted 35 entries. Unfortunately the Kenyan Rifle Team were unable to make the trip this year.
East Grinstead members held onto some honours with Paul Phillips claiming 3rd in Class B; Mike Kettle, winner Class C; and Mike and Elaine Kettle winning C&D Pairs.
