Busy Bank Holiday: Sporting in France, English Open FITASC, UK Universal Trench, British All Round and more

A busy bank-holiday weekend saw people competing all over Europe on 2-4 May.

The big-money event took place at Sologne Shooting Club in France, where George Digweed finished a massive 10 targets ahead of home-favourite Antoine Boutoille and Italy’s Enrico de Tomasi, who tied on 176.

At Royal Berkshire Shooting School, young hotshot Amy Easeman missed just one clay out of 80 to have her name engraved on the inaugural Femmes Fatales Cup.

Highwaymans Shooting Ground saw two of the top two elder statesman of the FITASC game go shot-for-shot. Veteran Steve Brightwell and Super Veteran Fred Townsend shot 132 each but Steve was crowned the English Open champion by default. Lucy Pitt won the Ladies category and Nathan Skinner topped Juniors.
