WEST MIDLANDS INTER COUNTIES AND AREA OLYMPIC SKEET CHAMPIONSHIPS AND THE HEREFORD & WORCESTER COUNTY CHAMPIONSHIPS

These Championships took place on Sunday 1st September 2013 at Gloucester GC on a fine and dry day.  For those who manage to master this discipline they really do have my admiration and for someone like Paul Tudge from Gloucestershire, it's a real pleasure to watch.  Shooting an amazing 97ex100 Paul is the West Midlands Area Champion, a PB for him.  The Inter County Champions are Gloucestershire with H&W taking the Silver.  The H&W team were made up of Graeme Walker, Anthony Blandford and Simon Jones.  Graeme Walker is the H&W County Champion on 77ex100 and after a shoot off with Brian Robinson and Graham Rendal he is also the Area Veterans Champion.  Well done to everyone and thank you to Gloucester Gun Club who, as always, made us very welcome.  It was a shame there were no medals for anyone to pick up.
