2022 English Open DTL
CPSA English Open DTL Championship:
For the final day of the DTL Weekend, shooters took part in the English Open Championship. The English Open is one of the oldest in DTL competition, having first been presented in 1921 (although it was put on hold during the World Wars).
As the last Championship of the weekend, the CPSA presented over 35 prizes and 20 trophies, keeping the trophy tables laden with silverware for the top shooters, who were celebrated not only for their individual performances, but also in a number of different sized teams.
Overall High Gun was Rob Hall who on the last squad of the day, shot a winning score of 100/299 . Rob has not shot a registered DTL shoot for some time so come to Bywell and take the High Gun trophy was something of a surprise to him. Rob first shot the English Open at the age of 11 with is father and said afterwards, "that he could feel his dad looking down on him on the last layout and this win is most definitely for him"
Congratulations to all who shot over the weekend and for some great scores all round, and at all levels.
Thank you to Bywell for hosting this event again this year and for putting on a fantastic shoot that was enjoyed by all. Thank you to our sponsors Eley and Swatcom for their continued support of the event, committing not only prizes of cartridges and Active8 headsets to High Gun in Juniors, Ladies, Veterans and Colts, but for also contributing to the prize fund across all 3 competitions. Tony Bromwich from Eley said, “It’s a fantastic event, and one we enjoy supporting year after year".
This year saw an added challenge with the chance to win a Beretta gun. For anyone who shot all 3 days and achieved the highest combined score in their class would win a A300, and the overall High gun would win a Silver Pigeon.
