The BFTA 2013 Season has started...
The BFTA 2013 season has started in earnest with the British Championships and the Inter-Regionals held at Newbury this weekend. Two excellent and challenging courses met the visitors over the weekend, spreading the field to a considerable degree as each shooter pitched their skills against them.
With top honours on day 1 was Andy Calpin from Anston, taking the title with 39 of the 40 targets, Simon Ayers taking 2nd place after a shoot-off with Andras Fekete-Moro who also finished on 37. Although a tough day for many 35 wasn't enough to see a top 10 place assured without a shootoff.
Day 2 saw similar conditions and the second, but just as challenging, course. Top honours went to NEFTA whose shooters averaged just under 36 targets hit out of the 40 to stand 17 points clear of CSFTA who reached their best ever position to date, just about keeping MFTA below them in 3rd place by just 5 targets.
Full results can be found under the results menu.
Many thanks to the Newbury and BFTA crew for all the hard work that went into making the event what it was.
