Have you entered the Clay Shooting Classic Sporting yet?
This year there will be a finals day for the first time in the history of the Classic – so, unlike in previous years, no one will know the winner until the very last shot is fired.
There’ll be finals across all the classes and categories, with payouts going down to eighth across the board. So that’s more prizes and more ways to win!
Over the years, the Classic has played host to some of the great sporting performances of our generation – from Mark Winser’s three-year winning streak to Paul Simpson’s blistering shoot in 2017 to return the trophy to the Simpson dynasty.
We’re revamping the squadding system for the 2018 Classic, aiming to make it a level playing field for all shooters. This year, every competitor will start on the same stand and progress in the same order. There are several advantages to shooting in this manner.
First off, no one will be given a psychological advantage by being allowed to start on an ‘easier’ stand. Plus, with everyone shooting in the same order, the course can be designed with this in mind – building up the difficulty as the stands go along for the most fulfilling Classic experience.
And with shooters tackling certain stands at the same time of day, stand locations can be optimised to reduce the effects of the sun. Oh, and it means less walking between stands too!
