Professional shooting instructor John Heagran wins the Stratstone Super 7 Challenge
After a nail-biting final last Friday, professional shooting instructor John Heagren beat 15 other finalists to be crowned the overall winner of the Stratstone Super 7 Challenge.
With an impressive score of 18×25, John went through to a tense shoot off with Ed Solomons. Hampshire-based John gets to drive a brand new Morgan Plus 4 for six months as his prize.
World clay shooting champion George Digweed won the highest qualifying score of 94×100 and took home a stunning Rolex GMT Master wristwatch worth £5000, courtesy of David Duggan. Chris Childerhouse won £2,000 of clothing from Really Wild after shooting the highest qualifying score with a side-by-side shotgun. All finalists went home with an engraved commemorative tumbler and were invited to a champagne lunch at Royal Berkshire Shooting School (RBSS) after the final.
John applauded the event:
“It was the pressure, not the high birds that was really difficult. The pressure got to all the finalists in the end. I play a lot of competitive sports so I am used to focusing and being watched by a crowd. I am delighted to have won such a beautiful car for the summer. Thank you to RBSS and Stratstone for organising such a prestigious event for clay and game shooters.”
James Brearley, Managing Director of Stratstone, commented: “The final was fantastic, not just for competitors but also for spectators. The feedback has been phenomenal. We are delighted to have been involved in this groundbreaking competition.”
Dylan William, Managing Director of RBSS, was delighted with how the competition was received by the shooting community. “It’s not every day shooters get the opportunity to compete for such an enormous prize fund. Pushing boundaries is at the core of what we do – we are currently working on another one-of-a-kind competition for next year. Watch this space.”
