Clay Pigeon Shooting Team Enjoys National Success
On Saturday, Bloxham's Clay Pigeon Shooting teams did exceptionally well at the National Schools and Young Shots Championships, defending all the titles they won last year!
Once again, Bloxham enjoyed first place success in the A event, B event, Junior event and CCF trophy too.
Bloxham’s achievement in winning four out of five classes at the National Schools Clay Pigeon Shooting Championships is unprecedented. This is now the seventh time Bloxham's A team have won the National Championships; they did so in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2012, 2013 and 2017. The B team won their class at the Nationals in 2005, 2006, 2007, and again in 2017.
it was the first time for many years that Bloxham also entered a girls team - Becky S, Emily H and Elspeth B - and we are awaiting confirmation of their placing.
Tom Oliver also won the CCF individual high gun with a score of 44 out of 50 - a fantastic achievement.
Congratulations to everyone involved.
