The Christ College Combined Cadet Forces (CCF) shooting teams gave up their Exeat weekend (29th & 30th September) to take part in the 161st Infantry Brigade Cadet Skill at Arms Meeting (CADSAAM).
Throughout the weekend teams from across Wales competed in a series of tests to find the top cadet shooters.
On three different ranges and at multiple distances, Christ College succeeded in getting two firers into the top 12 individual shoot-off on Saturday and beat Llandovery by 42 points in the race for the trophy for the best CCF on Sunday morning.
Finally, old rivalries were rekindled during the falling plate competition on Sunday afternoon, with Christ College B team meeting Llandovery College B team, and in a repeat of the 2017 final, Christ College A team meeting Monmouth A team in the 1st round. Shooting against very strong teams, neither of the Christ College teams progressed into the quarter finals.
At the Prize giving ceremony, Colonel Cadet for Wales David Hammond presented Cadet Regimental Sergeant Major Trevethan with the trophy for best CCF. The cup for the best individual shot in Wales was presented to Cadet Sergeant Morgan of Christ College’s A team, with Cadet Lance Corporal Lewis from the school’s B team in an extremely creditable third place.
Mark Bevan CCF School Staff Instructor at Christ College, said: “We are very proud of both our teams – as the standard of shooting within the Brigade increases year on year, they knew they would need to push hard to retain their title of the top CCF in Wales, and they did.
“It’s been a very successful competition which bodes well for the future, not just for our top shooters but also for our novice firers who we able to gain valuable experience for next year.”
