SATURDAY AND SUNDAY 24TH AND 25TH SEPTEMBER SAW TWELVE CADETS FROM CHRIST COLLEGE’S COMBINED CADET FORCE BATTLE IT OUT WITH THE BEST CADETS IN WALES AT THE ANNUAL 160TH INFANTRY BRIGADE CADET SKILL AT ARMS MATCH.
Twelve cadets from Christ College CCF participated in the 160th Infantry Brigade Cadet Skill at Arms match over the weekend 24th-25th September, on Sennybridge Ranges.
The training beforehand had gone very well, and both Christ College teams were looking forward to testing themselves against the best Cadets in Wales.
When the competition ended on Sunday lunchtime it was evident that all the cadets’ hard work had paid off, with the Christ College ‘A’ team being crowned best shots in Wales. This is an amazing achievement as it is no longer a separate competition between Combined Cadet Forces and Army cadet Forces, and many of the members of the ACF teams will go on shoot at Bisley later in the year.
The crowning glory was the CCB ‘A’ team emphatically winning the falling plate competition in style. The falling plate is the culmination of the weekend’s shooting and is always a competitive match.
With the Christ College boys and girls winning three of the possible four competitions and missing out on the Best Shot by only one point,the future of Cadet shooting at Christ College looks extremely strong. Well done to all who took part.
