CPSA World Festival of Shooting - Day one round up
Today 234 shooters arrived at E.J Churchill Shooting Ground, in Buckinghamshire for the first day of the week-long Festival of Shooting, which sees shooters from 20 countries across the world compete in an action-packed week of competitive clay shooting. 2018 marks the 90th year of the CPSA and the festival is a great way of celebrating this occasion.
The weather, combined with the great hospitality on offer E.J Churchill Shooting Ground lead for a successful first day. With glorious sunshine, minimal wind and temperatures hovering around the 28C mark, spirits were high throughout the day.
Ahead of the CPSA World Sporting which kicks off tomorrow, we held the Prelim English Sporting, FITASC Sporting and World Sportrap competition, which culminates with the shoot-offs for the World Sportrap on Thursday evening, FITASC Sporting on Friday evening and English Prelim on Saturday night.
As we sign off today, leading the scoreboard are John Kendall and Richard Bunning, both AAA class shooters with scores of 86ex100 on the CPSA World Sportrap course. Aaron Harvey, a AAA class shooter from Suffolk is currently in first place on the English Sporting Prelim course with a score of 94ex100 and James Attwood and Phil Rowbottom are sharing first place on the FITASC Sporting competition with their scores of 90ex100. Will these scores be enough to retain them the high gun titles at the end of the week? Only time will tell.
