This will be Stephen’s fourth shooting tour to South Africa. He started shooting at Rugby School – the home of Rugby Football – where he became an Atheling in 1976. Since those early days his shooting has taken him to many countries around the world including New Zealand where he was part of the winning GB Palma team in 1995 and most recently to the USA with the England team last September. However South Africa remains a firm favourite as he seems to have a bit of luck there winning the Long Range Aggregate in 1993 and the State President’s in 1999. This will be his first return to Bloemfontein since 1999 and he is looking forward to the chance of regaining the title as well as enjoying the hospitality and camaraderie which have always been a feature of South African shooting.
