Cheddar finish winter events on time
Cheddar Valley Rifle Club completed all its winter competitions on time.
DESPITE poor weather over the winter, Cheddar Valley Rifle Club managed to complete all the competitions on time, while other clubs in the county were not so lucky.
In the Somerset winter postal leagues, Cheddar fielded three teams and one team in Bristol and District, as well as three individuals.
In the Somerset leagues, all three Cheddar teams had to fight hard to maintain their reputation. In Division 1, the A team finished fifth, team B finished fourth in Division 2 and team C finished fifth in Division 5.
In the individual placings, Cheddar’s Mike Griffin finished as top scorer in Division 1, followed closely by Keith Thickett.
