I would like to congratulate Skipman aka Ian Jones on winning the British Field Sports Society, Catapult Championship, at Chatsworth Country Fair on Sunday Sept 4th 2011.

In a hard fought battle, Ian beat Mr Moxon, the winner for the previous twelve years, in a five target shoot out.

Ian was using his Dankung Sniper purchased from www.Catapults.Co

Ian has only recently started shooting slingshots but in the last year has arranged a number of "get togethers" and even persuaded the landlord of his local pub to install a catapult range! It looks like dedication pays off.

Congratulations also go to Mr Glaves who came third also shooting a Dankung Sniper purchased from the same UK supplier
