Shooting Round-Up

Wed, 20 May 2015


Terrific scores on Monday evening at Sinclair

            Round 4 of the Osborn Carpets first 600 Scratch match on Monday evening produced some excellent results for several of the Island’s top shooters. Ben Kelly, back on the Island for the summer from Edinburgh University, managed to make the firing line having missed the first 3 rounds of the weekly competitions and almost won the match being beaten by 1 point by Mike Duncalf. Duncalf, Kelly and Harry Creevy all posted 100’s in the match – both Creevy and Kelly produced double 100’s. Just 10 points separated the top 7 of the 20 shooters who entered and this could well be down to the excellent weather conditions. Although very cold and overcast, the wind was practically non-existent giving all 20 firing point’s identical conditions. Full results were:-

 

1 – Mike Duncalf                              98, 98, 96, 99, 99, 100 = 590 x 600

2 – Ben Kelly                                      97, 97, 97, 100, 100, 98 = 589

Although some of the juniors did not post excellent scores, they must not be disheartened, the ‘good  results’ will come with a little more experience.

Sam Jones wins his first Empire Garage Tynwald Shield Handicap medal

            In the Empire Garage Tynwald Shield Handicap, teenager Sam Jones managed to win this week’s medal from two other teenagers, Matthew Roosen by 4 points and Illiam Christian just a point further in arrears. I am guessing that the club’s competition secretary will be keeping his eye on some of these handicaps. Having said that, Jones has only been shooting 50 metres competitively for four weeks and I know he will relish in the fact that he may get a reduced handicap – he is a determined youngster. Full results were:-

1 – Sam Jones                                    556 + 60 = 616

2 – Matthew Roosen                      566 + 46 = 612

3 – Illiam Christian                            573 + 38 = 611

4 – Tony Kneale                                573 + 38 = 611

5 – Christian Eaton (J)                     551 + 60 = 611

6 – Steve Callus                                                 565 + 45 = 610

7 – Patrick Cubbon (J)                    550 + 60 = 610

8 – Bill Jones                                       576 + 32 = 608

9 – Andy Traynor                              579 + 28 = 607

10 – Mike Clague                              582 + 25 = 607

11 – Nick Brown                                576 + 31 = 607

12 – Tracey Skelton                         583 + 24 = 607

13 – Ben Kelly                                    589 + 16 = 605

14 – John Wood                                582 + 22 = 604

15 – Mike Duncalf                            590 + 14 = 604

16 – Tom Lord                                    576 + 28 = 604

17 – Richard Arthur                         580 + 22 = 602

18 – Suzanne McKnight                                 567 + 34 = 601

19 – Harry Creevy                            588 + 10 = 598

20 – Ashley Gardner                       571 + 23 = 594

 

Christian claims victory in the Sadler Junior Championship round 4

            A couple more juniors entered the Sadler match this week and the win went to Illiam Christian by 4 points and that included a 90 in his middle series. As I have said previously, this competition will become very competitive once the school examinations have passed. Full results were:-

1 – Illiam Christian                            98, 90, 99 = 287 x 300

2 – Matthew Roosen                      94, 96, 93 = 283

3 – Patrick Cubbon                          96, 91, 88 = 275

4 – Christian Eaton                           95, 92, 88 = 275

5 – Sam Jones                                    90, 93, 89 = 272
