Round Up of the 2014 Summer Season

Over the summer months, the Portsmouth City Rifle Club's shooters have been keeping busy taking part in the Civil Service, Portsmouth & District, and Hampshire Summer Postal Leagues, as well as the NSRA/ELEY national postal league.  Outdoors, some of us took advantage of the good weather to participate in the Hampshire outdoor matches.

Overall it was a very productive summer of shooting that introduced a few of our newer shooters to postal competitions and allowed all of us to keep practising over the summer months in preparation for the 2014-15 winter leagues.

Civil Service Summer League

In the Civil Service leagues, we are delighted to report the following shooters won their divisions:

Phil Upchurch (Div 7)
Jonathan Rowe (Div 13)

Special mentions also go to the following shooters who came a very close second:

Stephanie Furness-Barr (Div 11)
Yanye Koji (Div 14)

Portsmouth & District Summer League

In the P&D leagues, unfortunately none of our shooters placed first in their divisions but some did manage to come second (or joint-second).  They were:

Mike McCormick (Div 8)
Jonathan Rowe (Div 9)
Yanye Koji (Div 10)

Hampshire Indoor Summer League

And in the Hampshire team summer league, our A team secured second place in the third division.  They were Ian Cooper, Marian Nevatte, Adam Nevatte and Gordon Scruton.  Many congratulations to Fareham's B team for winning the division.  We'll see you again come Summer 2015! :-)

Hampshire Outdoor Summer Shoot

Outdoors, Gordon Scruton managed to shoot himself out of D Class by winning the division and the Holdaway Cup.

NSRA/ELEY National Postal Competition

Finally, Jonathan Rowe, a relative newcomer to shooting managed to get to the final of the 2014 NSRA/ELEY national postal competition.
