The GBR Trap Men are still after winning another Quota Place for 2012. The European Championship Trap had 5 quota slots available.

C Exton was in the running. He had a 98 x 100 with one round to go. He need a 25 to have any chance of getting in to the final and winning the quota. If ended up missing just one target leaving him with 122 x 125.

This was just out of the running leaving him in 16th position. But a fantastic result away.

Aaron Heading finished in 49th with 118 x 125 and Dave Kirk 39th position with 119 x 125.

The final hasnt taken place yet but the scores are massive with 2 people on 124 x125 and there will be a shoot off with six people on 123 x125 for four places in the final.

Tomorrow is Double Trap Mens Official Training and the competition is on Sunday. The skeet Women are flying out tomorrow.
