Clay Shooting Classic

Recommended Posts

I see the Classic is at Southdown again along with the Benelli Auto shoot. The Beretta World is at a new venue in Hampshire but still a 3 1/2 hour drive for me from Lincs.

Isn’t it about time these major competitions were rotated around the country a bit instead of nearly always being way down south?

Stuart,

Do you still class the Classic as a major ??

Think it lost its way when they stopped using greenfield sites of the Brunton days!!

Yes you are probably right Phil, certainly not what they used to be.

The English open, British open and the World champs are the only majors. The rest are just big commercial shoots that are run off the back off the CPSA class/classification system.

Think a fair few on these events are bid for and not simply rotated around area by area, which (making a bid) would lend itself to market forces = southern part of the country being more likely to turn the promotor a sizeable profit. GMK - Beretta are based in Hampshire and most probably want to stay in own back yard. I might though be barking up a wrong tree in a off target forest.

Southdown is just too far away from the Midlands, I did it last year - but vowed that I wouldn't entertain another trip there as the commute back was, and always will be, dreadful (I've worked in and around the Thames Valley for much of the last 30 years and know many shortcuts and traffic avoidance routes too).

Southdown's not bad from Norfolk. About 2 1/4hrs on a Saturday.
