PCRC gets the New Year off to a Winning Start!

Happy New Year everyone!

It's been a busy week for the club as we try to remember how to shoot after the haze of Christmas and New Year.  This week on Tuesday our shooters have been shooting their various postal competition cards (postal meaning that we shoot on our range, our opponents shoot on their ranges, and the cards get posted to a 3rd-party marker).

On Wednesday we had our Beginners' Night, it was a great success and I believe a fun time was had by all.  We are still to decide the date of our next taster night but it will probably be in April.

Last week we progressed further in the Arthur Lee Cup competition, but this was on account of our opponents, Havant, not being able to raise a team and so we won be default.  Not the most satisfying way to progress in a tournament, but we'll take it.

However, last night last night was the return of the shoulder-to-shoulder matches.

It was a home match last night, against Fareham A.  The clubroom was packed last night but it was a good atmosphere (with plenty of snacks - thank you Marian!) and the home team (us) managed to edge past Fareham to secure a victory and further improve the team average for the year.

Here were the scores:

Portsmouth City - 490

I. Cooper (100)
M. Nevatte (97)
A. Nevatte (98)
G, Scruton (97)
P. Upchurch (94)
S. Hart (96)
L. Haskett (98)
J. Rowe (95)

D. Reeves (83)
 Fareham A - 486

N. Grimstead (94)
T. Read (97)
J. Hounsell (98)
D. Shepperd (98)
D. Spendlove (99)
T. Mace (92)

Special congratulations go to Ian Cooper for another possible and to Lauren Haskett for a fine return to form.  This marks PCRC's best team score so far this shoulder-to-shoulder season!

Our next match is Monday, against Sarisbury.  Bring it on!
