Friday 26th July

Posted on 26th July, 2019

Timetable back to normal with Queen's Prize Stage 2 taking place this afternoon.


Hot of the press we have Peter & Reg through to the final stage tomorrow.  Peter carrying forward 149 and Reg 148.  Sadly Bob Shaw was one point and a few V's off the cut but well done regardless.


Big news of the day (or yesterday) besides the news above is our sucess in the special 150 Anniversary match for teams of 4 shooters.  Ibis put together a team (our first team entry of any sort in well over 20 years).  In sweltering conditions yesterday (air temp 36 degrees and ground temperature 46 at about 3pm) we shot 900, 1000, 300, 500 and 600 yards against 36 other teams.  Out of a possible total 1200.240 Ibis finished 2nd overall winning 5 Silver medals with a score 1145.115 narrowly loosing out on 1st place and Gold medals by just 2 V bulls.  Needless to say we were all pleased with that result given the battle against 6 hours out in that heat.


Team was


Reg Roberts Coach

Peter Griggs

Bob Shaw

David Smith

Chris Pawlik


(for those wondering "who is Chris Pawlik?" the match conditions required no more the 2 Class X (Peter & Bob) and at least 1 Class T (Tyro); the other two being Class A/O or T.  We have no Class T in the club at the moment so as this was an open competition with no ties to a club Chris was recruited from the ranks of Kent County young shooters.  Needless to say he did a stering job in his first major team match!).


Full results for that match here.


Just to mention the other days since the last news obviously 3 shot well enough on Queen's Stage 1 to go forward to Stage 2 today.  


Of the 3 members in George's Stage 2 all missed the score needed to reach Stage 3.


Full individual results here.
