Bideford TSC hosts successful competition

BIDEFORD Target Shooting Club’s annual Robeda Trophy shoot took place on Saturday with an excellent entry in both the prone and bench rest sections, as well as some good scoring.

All entrants had to fire 60 shots at a distance of 50-metres (although those using airguns take part at 20-yards) and the main event is a straight shoot for prone pairs.

This was narrowly won by the home pairing of Ann Travis and Pete Thomson, whose score of 1,173 out of a possible total of 1,200 was just two points clear of their club-mates Yvonne Hoile & Mog Thomson, with brothers Dean and Jack Bale from Braunton TSC a further four points behind.

The individual medal went to Mog Thomson with 591 from 600, three points clear of Dean Bale.

The handicap competition, which is calculated on the shooter’s current average, was also won by Mog, who improved considerably on her current average of 96.17 to finish with an average of 98.5.

In joint second place were two of Bideford’s newest shooters, Mark Pomeroy and Alex Bromell, who improved on their averages of 89.7 and 85.3.

The bench rest competition had a healthy entry and some very high scoring - particularly from the winner Sharon Rendle (Bideford), who has been shooting for less than a year but scored an outstanding 595. Her score included two ‘tons’.

That was considerably higher than her current average, helping her to also lift the handicap trophy by improving from 95.9 to 99.16.

In second place in that competition was Bideford’s Stan Brind, an airgun shooter who improved from 92.34 to 95.16, which just beat his club-mate Tony Mercer who bettered his 91.25 average to finish with 94.16.
