Held at Orston Shooting Ground in Nottinghamshire, the 2018 English Open Compak Sporting Championship took place at the tail-end of the 'Beast from the East', a snowstorm that resulted in many shooting ground closures and event cancellations. Despite the awful weather conditions, the team at Orston along with representatives from the BICTSF organised a great shoot, and many shooters from all over England braved the freezing temperatures in a bid to bag the championship title.
A last minute entry, due only to the cancellation of a rugby match he was set to compete in, Ben Husthwaite managed to set the pace with an incredible score of 99/100 - matched only by four other competitors who went on to shoot-off. Eventually, after a further sudden death shoot-off against Henry Arnold, Ben won the competition, securing his first title of the season using Black Gold Dark Storm cartridges.
