Default Essex Open 2015

Thanks to everyone that came along to Springfield for the Essex Open, sponsored by the Airgun Centre. This is the 2nd year running that FT and HFT have shot alongside each other, bringing both disciplines together on the same course. A total of 66 shooters enjoyed the fine Autumn weather, the wind was as usual quite tricky and caught out even the best.

The overall winner after a close shoot off with Simon Martin was Barry Warren in AA, with a fine 37/40. 2nd in AA went to Dave Hatfield and 3rd to Simon Ayres. Simon Martin took 1st place in FT A grade. 2nd went to Glen Newman and 3rd to Steve Carter, after a 5 way shoot off. Mike Spraggett took 1st in FT B grade and Andy Barnes took 1st in C grade. 1st in HFT went to Colin Wilson with a fantastic 74/80, with an FT equivalent score of 36. 1st Lady went to Helen Carragher with a 35/40, 1st Springer went to Andy Pearson with a 29/40 and 1st Junior was Cal Tiquin, visiting from South Africa.

Hope you enjoyed the format and congratulations to all the winners of the 600 worth of vouchers from the Airgun Centre. Look forward to seeing you next year.
