Ayre Clay Target Club hosted two championships at Blue Point at the weekend.


Saturday saw the annual Pheasant Flush which was won by last year’s runners up, Alan Kinrade and Kevin Oates on 74/100.  Second place was decided by a shoot-off which was won with a score of 71 by Paul Mihailovits and visiting shooter Simon Neville.  Former winners, father and son team Marty and Jack Kneen were third, also scoring 71.


Sunday was the English Skeet Manx Championship, kindly sponsored by JW Kneen and Son.  Jeff Corkill was high gun on 98/100.  Marty Kneen took silver after a shoot-off with Stan Cross who both scored 97.  After a full round shoot-off the pair were still tied, scoring 24/25.  Kneen finally broke the deadlock in the sudden death pairs on stand four, hitting all four as Cross missed one.
