Jamaica Skeet Club president, Khaleel Azan, is looking forward to good performances from 50 of the island’s top shooters when they compete in two major tournaments in the United States next month.A total of 10 Jamaicans will feature at the 2017 Krieghoff Classic 200. It will be hosted by the South Florida Shooting Club in the United States from February 2-5.An expected 40 Jamaicans will then line up in the prestigious Gator Cup, to be held at Quail Creek Plantation February 15-19.Both tournaments will also feature a number of international shooters.”Everybody is getting ready for the overseas tournaments which begin next month in Florida.”We suspect that Jamaica will be the second-largest contingent, behind the United States, for the Gator Cup. It could be anywhere around 40 of us,” Azan told The Sunday Gleaner.Azan recalled that the Jamaica team had a successful Gator Cup outing in 2015. He expects this year’s 40-member team of juniors, seniors and veteran shooters to give strong performances.IMPRESSIVE SCOREJunior shooter Brandon Reid shot an impressive score of 154 in the main event to place second in C Class and earned for himself US$1,000 in 2015.Nickolai Clarke topped the sub-juniors division, while also taking the runner-up spot in the E class to earn US$1,000.Seniors Bruce DuQuesnay and Errol Ziadie both ended with 148, while Robert Reid, father of Brandon Reid, shot 146 to take home US$750 for third in B class.Meanwhile, Ben Husthwaite, a multiple world champion, highly accomplished instructor and world-renowned target setter, will be in the island to give lessons at the Jamaica Skeet Club in the first week of March.
