One hundred and fifteen shooters assembled at the Jamaica Skeet Club on Sunday for the final meet of the year for the Christopher Hamper Sporting Clays shoot.

At the end of the shoot, nine-time national shotgun champion Ian Banks and Marc Barnes picked off ninety-five birds out of a possible one hundred.

The winners had the opportunity to select their prize from hams, orchids, gift vouchers from Chad Ad and other prizes.

Both Banks and Barnes were elated with the win, but more so Barnes who could be heard saying that he felt so good with his results that he could go back on the course and continue shooting.

He was also happy because his score meant that he shot more birds than his celebrated five-time national shotgun champion brother Shaun Barnes, who shot eighty-seven on Sunday.

Generally speaking, the shooters posted very good scores and this was attributed by some to the fact that they were more relaxed during the shoot than the others earlier in the year.

The top three shooters in the various categories are A Class: Ian Banks 95, Marc Barnes 95, Craig Simpson 94 and Nicholas Chen 93; B Class: Jordan Samuda 91 (secretary of the Jamaica Skeet Club), Evan Thwaites 87 (president of the Jamaica Skeet Club) and Robin Rickhi 86; C Class: Roman Tavares-Finson 90, Brandon King 88 and Craig Davis 84; D Class: Cameron Pang-Sang 89, Nathan Chin 87 and John Chin 81; E Class: JJ Ralston 79 and Matthew Sale 79 in a two-way tie for first and a three-way tie for second with Andrew Simpson 78, Chris Barnes 78 and Dylon Fletcher 78; Ladies: Marguerite Harris 77, Wendy McMaster 72 and Renee Rickhi 71; Juniors: Roman Tavares-Finson 90, Cameron Pand-Sang 89 and Jonah Subaran 80; Sub Juniors: Nathan Chin 87, JJ Ralston 79 and Jordan Vaz 77; Hunters or beginners Class: Georgio Hado 79 (his first competitive shoot), Jordan Vaz 77 and Cody Delisser 74

The shooters will now take a break for the rest of the year.
