52TH EUROPEAN FITASC CHAMPIONSHIPS 2019

We have just returned from the above event which was held in GANT, HUNGARY. The work that had gone into setting up the different shooting ranges was incredible. The presentation was simply perfect... everywhere you walked there was beautiful wood chipped paths throughout the shoot. New purpose built stairs and stands had been built and the organisation including transportation to the different shooting ranges was brilliant. The terrain was like nothing most of us had ever seen before .... it was as though we had landed on the moon and it did bring back very happy memories of the time Steven and I flew by helicopter to the Grand Canyon. The targets were phenomenal.... every layout was so interesting. I just wish that we could pick up the whole terrain where the shoot was held and bring it back to Surrey!.

It was a fabulous shoot and it will most definitely be one of the most memorable events for all the right reasons.

Steven shot with one of the organisers of the shoot Lajos Macsek, as well as shooters from Austria, Russia and Italy.

The winner of the Juniors Christian Camporese followed Steven all four days and it was a pleasure to watch this young man hold it all together to finish Junior European FITASC Champion ...

Christian’s manners were impeccable and it was obvious that he had been brought up well by his caring family who travelled to Hungary to support him.

The layouts were called VERTES FOREST, KRIEGHOFF, GAMEBORE, BLASER, PROMATIC,BERETTA, MVE AND RANGEMASTER.

It was very exciting to see MARK WINSER finish his last shooting position having shot 50 straight. 25/25 on both MVE AND RANGEMASTER. I think that I must have looked more excited than the always so composed Mark knowing that he had now just won the EUROPEAN !. Having watched Steven shoot every single target that was thrown over the four days, I realised how truly amazing Mark’s score was ... finishing on 191/200. I felt so happy and proud of Mark that I could not stop smiling and cheering!. Steven and I remember Mark and his Dad coming to our shoots when he was just a young boy, and it is lovely to see Mark now reaping the rewards of all the time and effort that was put into his shooting... Mark now definitely one of the world’s best shooters. Still young with perfect eye sight, Mark has years of being at the very top of his profession ahead of him. In second place was Mark’s good friend from Hungary Andras Szerdahelyi who shot an excellent 187 and who was sincerely happy to celebrate his friends success. Brilliant shooting Mark and you are such a great ambassador for the sport.

Cheryl Hall won the LADIES EUROPEAN title and the European Cup as well as Team Silver. Great shooting Cheryl.

Another shooter who gained my highest respect was Steve Brightwell who won the VETERANS CLASS and also came 4th overall!. What an incredible achievement and there is no reason why Steve Brightwell could not win the World FITASC Championships at Churchill Shooting Ground in July this year.

The WORLD FITASC CHAMPIONSHIPS is being held at the same venue in Hungary in two years time. God willing, we hope to return to Hungary in 2021. Thank you to all the Federation and organisers including the referees and arbiters, who without you ... there would be no shoot.
