Nad Al Sheba Sporting Clays Championships
The Members and Committee of CSI would like to congratulate David Marshall on his incredible performance at the Nad al Sheba event in Dubai. David finished 7th overall just missing out on the final by one target and leaving a much vaunted field in his wake.
We were all treated to a shooting exhibition when David won the Thorntons shield in Drumman earlier this year and are delighted to see that he was able to follow that form up in this world class event with some of the worlds finest shooters participating, and also in very testing conditions.
WE also want to wish our congratulations to all our members that travelled and took part in the event.
