Shooting

Sat, 14 May 2016


It appears that Sunday morning proved to be too cold and wet for many club members as just seven arrived for the Isle of Man Shooting Club’s May Handicap. Under the instructions of Range Officer Brian Fozard, three matches were contested, The May Handicap, The IoM Rifle Associations Sinclair Cup teams of two and the first round of five of The Junior 50 metre Grand Prix, got underway on time and due to the cold, did not require the full fifty minutes duration. Winner of the Handicap event for the second month in succession, was teenager Matthew Roosen, who produced a score 4 points ahead of another youngster, Rhys Keown.

 

Full Results were:-

Duncalf takes round 2 of The Osborn Carpets Scratch match

            Much better weather albeit still somewhat cold, awaited the 13 competitors on Monday evening for the weekly group of matches. Mike Duncalf led the way in The Osborn Carpets scratch match by over 5 points from Ben Kelly, now back on the Island after a considerable length of time at Edinburgh University and just a little further in arrears, Derek Kermode.

Roosen takes his third Handicap match in succession

            Round two of The Empire Garage Tynwald Shield went to Matthew Roosen who actually bettered his 60 shot score he had produced the previous morning. His personal best score mentioned above, proved to give a 6 point advantage once his handicap had been added with a total of 609. Derek Kermode, the only shooter to record a full house, claimed second position on 603 and Mike Duncalf posted a 598 giving him third.

 

Full results were:-

12 - Alex Trafford                   94, 89, 91, 94, 96, 94 = 558 + 28 = 586

 

            Once again, there was a poor entry for The Sadler Junior Championship where just 3 youngsters to make the firing line and Matthew Roosen claimed the win after his superb shoot in the above matches, Alex Trafford held onto second slot with a determined Rhys Keown got third.

1 - Matthew Roosen               97.8, 100.2, 100.9       = 298.9 (5XBulls)
