Childerhouse masters the Krieghoff
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.
