Dick Hails - very sad news...
Rest In Peace Dick.
It is with great sadness that on Friday June 7th 2019 we lost our president, chairman, committee member and friend Richard 'Dick' Hails.
Dick meant so much to so many within Suffolk, his passion for this sport was always paramount and it could easily be seen by all. He spent countless years representing and working for our sport within Suffolk and regionally within the East Midlands.
A true gentleman, who was so kind and warming to those he met. He found ways to instill a love for shooting in others, whether they already shot or were new to the sport he would take them under his wing. Our love and thoughts go to his family and friends at this very sad time.
Welcome to the Suffolk CPSA website, here you can find out about all things Suffolk including our upcoming fixtures!
Suffolk has a rich history of clay shooting, and we are always looking for team members to join us and shoot for the county on a regional and national basis. We select teams in four categories; Seniors, Ladies, Juniors and Veterans. In order to shoot for the Suffolk teams please ensure you have entered the championship in that discipline, as these are used as our selection shoots, but if you are still not sure or would like some guidance please contact us. We enter teams in six disciplines; Sporting, English Skeet, FITASC, All Round, DTL and ABT.
In 2018 Suffolk became triumphant regionally and won the ‘East Midlands Directors Trophy’ which they have now won 6 out of the 9 years it has been awarded. An incredible feat, which we hope to continue in the coming years. Our senior team also became the 2018 National All-Round Champions!
EAST MIDLANDS AWARD SUFFOLK SHOOTER
The 'one and only' Adrian Last with his well deserved 'Service to the County' Award.
Congratulations to the lovely Adrian Last, who this year was honoured to receive a ‘Service to the Region’ award by the East Midlands Regional Committee for his ongoing service to shooting in the region. I am sure you will all know of Adrian as he is a regular face at many of our county fixtures and local shoots, so please join us in congratulating him on his achievements! He has previously won numerous other awards including ‘Suffolk Sports Personality of the Year’ at the Suffolk Sports Awards so this is another brilliant one for him to add to his collection!
SUFFOLK SUPREME CHAMPION 2018
This years supreme title has been retained for the second year on the bounce by Stuart Smith who scored a whopping 57 out of 60 possible points. In second place was Chris 'Puff' Baker on 33 and in third was Andy Gibbs on 25. ABOVE: 2018 Suffolk Supreme Champion, Stuart Smith being presented with the trophy by New Chairman Daren Parsons.
So how do I become Supreme Champion?
Every year the Suffolk CPSA award the highest scoring shooter from across six disciplines. In 2019 Supreme titles were also added alongside the Overall Supreme title for the Ladies, Junior, Colt and Veterans categories. Disciplines that count towards the title are;
Sporting • English Skeet • FITASC • ABT • DTL • All Round
10 points will be awarded to the 1st place shooter in each category at each shoot, 9 points to 2nd and so on until 1 point is reached which is awarded to all of those who shot the shoot. You must be a CPSA member in Suffolk County to qualify, and you can earn points across multiple categories (e.g. Colts and Ladies) however you will only be able to win one title.
Supreme Awards will be calculated and then handed out at the Suffolk AGM. There is also County Badges available across these disciplines for the High Gun in Overall, Ladies, Juniors and Veterans which will also be awarded at the AGM.
Fancy getting your hands on a trophy next year? See our fixtures list in the events diary for the all the dates of the qualifying shoots!
