01 Jun NEWS FROM EUROPE – 2016 KRIEGHOFF DTL, UK
The 18th annual Krieghoff DTL (down-the-line) was held May 26 -29 at the Mid-Wales Shooting Center. Amazingly, the weather was great and a record number of 480 shooters went to the line Saturday and Sunday. Excellent scores were posted with 23 perfect 100/300’s during the event. A existing squad record that has stood for over 20 years was shattered when a new squad record was set with 1498 x 1500 points by an all K-80 squad which consisted of Paul Chaplow, Shane Smith, Curtis Woolley, Ian Patterson and Marty Smith. Our heartiest congratulations go to these talented shooters.
Paul Chaplow had an unbelievable shoot as he dropped just 2 points in 600 targets. Paul finished on a personal high by winning the Krieghoff DTL ten years after winning it the first time in 2006. Congratulations on a terrific score and accomplishment.
Thanks to Allen Rhone, his crew and the staff at the Mid-Wales Shooting Center who made the 2016 Krieghoff DTL truly a memorable event.
