Childer­house mas­ters the Krieghoff

Sporting Shooter - - Clay News - WITH DON BRUNT

Now in its third year, the Krieghoff Mas­ters was once again held at West­field Shoot­ing Ground near Chel­tenham. The two cour­ses of­fered a va­ri­ety of tar­gets with that fa­mil­iar West­field feel to them that you’d ex­pect from Steve Lo­vatt. Both of the 10-stand 80-tar­get cour­ses were fairly evenly matched, with the Blue course pro­duc­ing an av­er­age score of 59 while the Red was nearly iden­ti­cal on 60 ex 80.

The event’s for­mat meant that it was the five class win­ners that would go for­ward to the fi­nal for a chance to win big money in the shoot-off.

Sadly, nei­ther C Class win­ner D. Ship­ton or AA win­ner P. Cooper were able to re­turn for the fi­nal, but Chris Childer­house (AAA), S. Clarke (A) and Dave Fisher (B) did make it for the 25 tar­gets that would set­tle the top three podium places. In pre­vi­ous years, there have been some up­sets in the class or­der in the fi­nal, but this year saw it fol­low ex­pec­ta­tions, with Chris Childer­house mak­ing it look rel­a­tively easy as he cruised to the win with a 21 ex 25 (ver­sus 18 from Clarke and a 13 from Dave Fisher).

As well as the cash prizes on of­fer, there were car­tridge prizes from Hull Car­tridge, glasses from Ed Lyons and ad­di­tional spon­sor­ship from Teague

Chokes and the Bri­tish Shoot­ing Show, while Pro­matic once again sup­ported the event with traps.
