Annual Masonic National Championships 2023
On the 3rd June 8 members of the Cornwall Provincial Shooting Society took part in the annual Masonic National Championships for clay target shooting at the Dolphin Clay Target Centre, Longton Nr Preston. This event was well attended by Masons and guests from all over the country with a team also from Scotland. The weather was superb with well presented targets which meant competition was fierce. This year’s champions were West Lancashire who shot with a very strong team on their home ground and were worthy winners, Cornwall on this occasion came 5th.
The whole weekend was very enjoyable, great company with the inevitable banter, we even managed to stop off for a shoot at the Old Glossop Ground outside Manchester on the way back.
In June next year we look forward to hosting the 2024 Nationals with proceeds going towards the 2024 Festival, details to follow.
