DTL HCIT, British Open and Europeans

Congratulatuions to all the UCPSA members who attended these events and especially to all the Northern Ireland team. Once again our shooters from by far the smallest country rose to the challenage with some fantastic results. Home International saw individual success for Neville Bradley senior high gun and Bernard Cassidy Senior runner up after a six way shoot off on 299 for the top place.

The British Open saw solid individual performances again especially from Dermot McQuillan winning "A" class wth a PB 100/299. Geoff Dale was NI high gun with a 100/298 and Bernard Cassidy with 595/600 was NI high gun of the two days. Other two day trophies went to Joshua Shortt (Juniors) and Ivan Williamson (Veteran). The coveted Bernie Larkin trophy was won for a third time by our Northern Ireland squad 1 (D Bell, W Armstrong, R Sloan, G Dale and N Bradley) This is for highest scoring squad over the two days and was won after a shoot of with Ireland squad 1.

Europeans on day three and four saw big successes, top score 598/600 was Darren Bell and Bernard Cassidy, the two Northern Ireland shooters were top of the leader board and had to shoot off for the European Champion and runner Up, Darren took the win 25/75 to 25/73. Big shooting and Bernard proved our most consistent shooter over the four days. And another European Champion, yes, in the ladies Katie McQuillan did not lose a target in four days shooting but the European scores of 295 and 298 would see her become the Ladies European Champion, at just 21 years of age.

The juniors Joshua Shortt, Scott Magill and 15 yr old Cody Brady shot fantastic to claim a team bronze, and Joshua also took individual junior bronze. Katie McQuillan added bronze in "A" class to her collection after a shoot of with Scott Magill.

Thanks again to all the team again showing Northern ireland to punch well above its weight in shooting sports, congratulations also to our neighbours Ireland whose team also has a fantastic four days, a lot of silverware came back across the Irish Sea!
