The Army Target Shooting Club Clay Target Section (ATSC-CTS) held their inaugural Clay Target Shooting Championship at Barbury Shooting School on Wed 2nd November 2011 . The competition was open to all ATSC-CTS personnel with both military and civilian guests from across the three services. The event attracted over 50 entrants from all classes and would be a handicapped (over 3 stands) 100 sporting competition followed by a 100 bird 5 man flush and prizes were awarded in 8 classes with a Runners Up prize in each class. The winners of each class were:


Army High Gun WO2 Tony Masters (79)


Guest High GunMr Mick Waite (81)


Ladies High GunCpl Jude Rawlyk (58)


AA Class Maj Dean Martin (77)


A Class WO2 Rob Chisnall (78)


B Class Maj (Retd) Tony Higham (75)


C Class Maj Will Taylor (66)


Flush Winners Team 10 led by Sgt Chris Boakes


Lt Col Ged Argyle also took the opportunity to present the award for the ATSC-CTS Best Developed Shot for 2011 to Sgt Colin Fiddy.


Major Dean Martin who organised the competition said After the experience of the Simulated Game Day earlier in the year I was extremely keen to see what Huw and the team could put together for us on the competition front. As always the event went seamlessly with superb targets which were both challenging and deceptive. Stands 1, 3 and 10 were the handicapped stands with stand 10 leaving some guns bewildered as to their dreadful final stand score, me included! I can safely say that this event was a great success and a fitting closure to what has been a magnificent years shooting. To all at Barbury, I thank you for making this a superb day and to all those supporting and shooting within the team may you have just as good, if not an even better year in 2012.
