Message from Trap Manager Simon Taylor
Anyone interested in shooting the Derbyshire Olympic Trap County Championship this year.
We are looking to hold the Championship at Doveridge in conjunction with Staffordshire’s O T shooters on Sunday 17th March.
It will be a shoot of 50 targets and a 6 man ISSF mini final with the top 3 shooters from each County taking part.
I would like to know who is interested and what your thoughts are on ;-
1) Holding it with another County
2) Holding the Championship at Doveridge with only one layout
3) Or any other suggestions that anyone may have.
I know not many people shoot Olympic Trap and many don’t like to travel far, so hopefully this is a fun way of doing the Championship.
I know with only one layout it’s a bit restrictive to squad numbers but both Counties struggle with turnout for this discipline.
Also this year’s West Midlands Area & Inter Counties Olympic Trap Championship is at Fauxdegla on Sunday 11th August.
Thoughts and Ideas welcome. A.S.A.P
