English Match September 2023

Although several regular competitors couldn't make it there was still a slight increase in entries compared to 2022. Some new faces appeared at the club along with some friends from previous years, making up for those that couldn't make it. Class A again had several notable candidates going up against some of East Grinstead's top shots, with Charles White (EGTSC) coming out on top 5 points clear of the rest.

English Match 2021

First post Covid open shoot! As expected, entry was limited but enthusiastic. Finally ending up with 14 competitors of which one had to cancel as he'd been called up to shoot for his school.

The weather was ideal all weekend so new excuses had to be used. The best we heard was that it was because of the new duckboards.!

Weather Plays it's Part

Blustery conditions on Saturday and calmer conditions on Sunday meant that the prize winners were biased towards those that shot on Sunday.
