Bideford on course for Kynoch Shield

Joseph Bulmer

Bideford Rifle Club A team is on course to retain the Kynoch Shield after a successful semi-final round in which they had an almost perfect score against Tavistock.

They now meet Pinhoe A in the Devon final and the winner will go on to meet the Cornwall winner in the inter-county final in March.

In the team of six, each shooting against an individual chosen “start” figure, five of the team achieved the score the 100 they needed, while the sixth member was 3 points adrift. This was enough to beat Tavistock by four points.

Bideford A 597, Tavistock 593 - Pete Thomson start 8 + gunscore 92 = 100; Andy Darch 8 + 92 = 100; Martin Morgan 8 + 92 = 100; Ann Travis 5+95=100; John Hutchings 8 + 92 = 100; Mog Thomson 8 + 89 = 97
