Sneak pre­view of new Royal Flush shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion

Shooting Times & Country Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Shoot­ing Times was in­vited to a spe­cial pre­view last week ahead of the Royal Berk­shire Shoot­ing School’s (RBSS) new shoot­ing com­pe­ti­tion, the Royal Flush, which opened on Mon­day.

Fifty guests were given a taster ses­sion on each of the five se­quences, fol­lowed by a cham­pagne re­cep­tion and lunch.

Shoot­ing Times Ed­i­tor Pa­trick Gal­braith said: “It was a huge plea­sure to be in­vited to one of Bri­tain’s best shoot­ing schools for the launch of one of the sport’s pre­mier com­pe­ti­tions. I must ad­mit that when I heard there was go­ing to be a walked-up stand I couldn’t see how it could pos­si­bly work. Ac­tu­ally, though, it was prob­a­bly the high­light of the lay­out. If only I’d shot a bit straighter.”

To enter the Royal Flush, com­peti­tors must shoot 100 tar­gets off five 20-bird se­quences. The top 30 en­trants qual­ify for the fi­nal where they must shoot at least 92 out of 100 to win the top prize — a choice of five lux­ury sport­ing hol­i­day des­ti­na­tions worth up to £30,000. There is also £1,000 for each top Gun on the five stands dur­ing the qual­i­fy­ing pe­riod.
