With the easing of rules, competitions are back in full swing (though with spacing between shooters, so some restrictions on numbers – Not that that’s an issue with historic disciplines). Chinnor had two shooters enter the Historic section of the Imperial meeting (6 week NRA competition).
Sadly this is an under entered event so (N.M) is no medal received due to numbers: 7 shooters needed for 2nd place to be awarded. 12 shooters needed for 3rd place to be awarded.
Iain entered 6 matches and was placed in the top 3 in 3 of them. I submitted scores for 14 matches and had 10 placings in the top 3, though only 5 medals awarded due to numbers. Either way, CRPC members walked away with 7x medals. On a personal note, it was nice to see another CRPC member participating in/supporting our sport.
