Alan Payne won the Handicap Classic at Royal Berkshire Shooting School today.
His scratch score of 82, twinned with a handicap of 14, beat the likes of Ed Solomons and Chris Childerhouse to win the overall High Gun prize of a Browning Heritage shotgun.
George Keys was the highest scoring Browning user, and he won a Miroku shotgun.
Alan said of his and George’s wins: “Between us we have over 120 years of shooting experience. The difference is I’m just hitting my peak while George is on his way down.”
A number of other prizes were up for grabs, including Oakleys glasses, CCI clays, Gamebore cartridges and Stratstone driving days.
Royal Berkshire’s Dylan Williams said he was delighted for Alan and the running of another successful Handicap Classic, as well as hinting at the evolution of the Stratstone Super 7 Challenge next year. More information will be available soon.
