Brad Palatchie walked away with the coveted Graham Webb Memorial Trophy at the Marlborough Closed Shooting Championships held at the Blenheim range on Thursday.

The contest was open to any Marlborough graded shooter to compete for trophies in their grade. The top five shooters qualified for a final shoot-off to determine the overall champion who received the trophy. Palatchie took the title by 3 inners from Regan Cowe, who took second in the master grade, followed by Richard Sampey in third.

Kim Bishell dominated A grade with followed by David Dick, while up and coming shooter William Van Asch took the B grade trophy with a very respectable 197.10.

In the C grade Charlie Bryant was never troubled with a solid 191.6, and Joanie Benge's good season continues with a d grade win.

The top five shoot-off saw some tight competition resulting in Palatchie and Cowe on the same points, but a greater inner count from Palatchie gave him the 2014 title.
