|NRA Falling Plates - RESULTS|
A record 38 teams enjoyed the NRA Falling Plates matches on Saturday 1 July, with wins for LERA Sparkbrook in Historic Class, and LPSC in Modern.
Shot on the excellent facilities at Ash Ranges, the match has grown in popularity in recent years, and 2017 saw 22 teams in Historic Class and 16 in Modern.
The plates are approximately 12" high x 10" wide, shot at a range of 200 yds.
Teams of four have 10 plates to knock down as quickly as possible. Teams in the Historic Class have a reduced run of about 35 yds, while the Modern Class competitors advance 100 yds on the siren.
LERA had a strong presence and the final became a shoot out between LERA Enfield and LERA Sparkbrook, with the Sparkbrook team narrowly beating their club rivals to take the Fulton Team Challenge Plate.
In Modern Class it was a re-run of the 2014, 2015 and 2016 final with a Britain v France line up. The LPSC once again took on the popular French CSAG team, with LPSC winning by two plates.
