The Surrey LSR Open held at Carshalton on the 28th September 2019 was narrowly won by David Sprigg of Bookham with 579, the highest score in the competition’s history, just two points ahead of last year’s winner Colin Hudson of Carshalton with 577 ex 600.

Third, shooting with a borrowed air rifle and diopter sights, was Emma Stratford of Target Shooting School in her first shoulder to shoulder competition, who scored 562. She is clearly one to watch for the future!

Class B was won by Joe de Michele of Bookham, scoring 531 in his first shoulder to shoulder competition.

The Junior medal was won by Emma Stratford of Target Shooting School.

Numbers were significantly up from last year, with several entrants shooting their first shoulder to shoulder competition and one shooter making a 200 mile round trip to compete. All but one of the details were sold out and the Carshalton Clubhouse was packed for most of the day.

Almost half of the entrants were Juniors, most shooting with diopter sights, competing against adults with telescopic sights.

The trophies will be awarded at the Surrey Dinner at Bisley on Saturday 30th November.

Many thanks to scorer Nigel Milner, officials Gail Rees, Braff Knight-Simpson and Brian Edmunds, to Carshalton Rifle Club for hosting the event and to Target Shooting School for sponsorship of targets and range hire.
