Park Lodge Shooting School’s inaugural Yorkshire Schools Clay Shooting Challenge, held on 19 September, was open to both individuals and teams of novice and semi experienced shooters from year nine upwards, had 18 entries from schools around the region.
The challenge was won by Chris Holt from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, Wakefield, who was named high gun with a score of 48ex-50.
The competition entrants also had the pleasure of meeting Caroline Povey, who was shooting at Park Lodge. Caroline is the Commonwealth Games Bronze medalist, England and Great Britain Olympic Trap clay shooter and four times UK Champion. Caroline kindly presented the award to Chris Holt at the end of the competition. The event was sponsored by shotgun cartridge manufacturer Lyalvale Express, who provided the winner’s prize of a cartridge bag and 250 cartridges.
Tom Bayston, proprietor of Park Lodge Shooting School said: “We were delighted that this inaugural event was so well supported and I would like to congratulate Chris on his fantastic win. All the entrants had an enjoyable day, and meeting Caroline was an extra treat. We are grateful to Lyalvale Express for sponsoring the Yorkshire Clay Shooting Challenge event and look forward to next year’s event, which we are already receiving enquiries for.”
