BSSA Frostbite League 2023/4 Round 3

A mild, damp and dull day for Round 3 of 2023/24 Frostbite League, though the rain, for the most part, held off until the shooting had been completed (but not the packing up).

As usual, Round 3 incorporates the Christmas shoot, five shots in two minutes, with the aim being to miss the elves (-25 points) who are busy decorating the Christmas tree and, if you’re feeling lucky, hit the star (+25 points).  For the benchrest competitors the challenge was greater, as they had to shoot at a reversed target. The winning score was +55 and the lowest -70; someway short of the current record of -92.

Results for the day’s serious competition were:





1. Cards 1 & 2 First C Stone 5 0
Second N Day 4 0
2. Cards 3, 4 & 5 First K Sheead 4 1
Second S Webb 6 2
3. Cards 6, 7 & 8 First Mrs S Day 6 0
Second Ms M Poham 6 0

Round 3 also sees the Half-Way prizes in each class, these are based on the best two 0f the three rounds shot thus far. Winners were:





A N Day 4 7
B Mrs S Day 6 8
C I Abbots 9 35
BR K Sheead 2 21
