Last weekend was a busy one at Bookham Rifle Club, with inaugural competitions for the SCSBRA Thorncroft Shield and Trophy (10m Air Pistol), and the Queen Elizabeth Shield and Trophy (LSR)

40 shooters competed altogether, in a very relaxed and convivial atmosphere. The competitions were run as 'Name your own Start', with 40 shots across two details.

Thorncroft Trophy and Shield
The individual competition for the Thorncroft Trophy was very closely fought, with 3 points covering the top three scores. All three were Bookham shooters, A Goodall scoring a perfect 400 ex 400, followed by D Sprigg 399 and J Leivers 398.

In the junior event D Bavin was the winner with 393.

In the team event for the Thorncroft Shield Bookham A took the honours, scoring 1192 ex 1200, closely followed by Bookham B on 1190 with Ham and Petersham third on 1188.

Queen Elizabeth Trophy and Shield
In an extraordinary finish to Queen Elizabeth Trophy (Individual) F Hay (Lingfield and Dormansland) and A Thewless (Caterham) went head to head three times in a shoot-off for the Trophy. Both shooters were neck and neck throughout the competition, with scores of 399 ex 400. Hay was the eventual winner by a single point after three gruelling shoot-offs in the summer heat. Sharing third place with 398 were N Campana Etheridge (Bookham), T-M Hughes (Caterham), J Gall (Bookham Junior), K Gall (Bookham Junior), P Vigar (Bookham) and N Parry (Bookham).

In the shoot-off for top junior J Gall beat his brother, who will be seeking to reverse those positions next year.

In the team event for the Queen Elizabeth Shield the winners were Lingfield and Dormansland, scoring 1190 ex 1200. Second were Bookham B on 1188, and third Bookham A on 1187.
