LINCOLNSHIRE OLYMPIC TRAP CHAMPIONSHIP

HELD AT EAST YORKSHIRE CLAY SHOOTING GROUND

ON SUNDAY 2ND MAY 2021

 

With some of our competitors still blowing away the cobwebs after such a long period of not shooting, this championship saw a day of mixed fortunes for many.  Several of our best trap shooters set off with good steady scores - Aaron Heading 23, Dave Sipling, last year's OT champion, 24 and John Winn 24 but line 2 saw a change of fortunes for some with Aaron putting in an uncharacteristic 18 and John with a lower but recoverable score of 21.  Dave continued to do well and by the end of line 3 looked set to retain his title.  Marvin Houghton, on the other hand, had remembered what to do by line 2 and followed up his shaky 17 on line 1 with a spectacular 25 and at the end of line 3 was still potentially a contender but the final line sorted everybody out.  Aaron showed true Olympian spirit with a final round score of 25, finishing on 89.  Alas, Dave was unable to maintain his form and finished with an 18 with a final score just one point back on 88.

The event was well supported with a total entry of 47.  Competitors are just happy to be back shooting and Rob and the team at East Yorkshire are always welcoming so there is a happy atmosphere so win, lose or draw it is an enjoyable experience.

Congratulations to all.
