The Wooden Spoon

Photograph shows Wooden Spoon Trophy.

Donated to the association by SSRA President - Major (Retired) Peter Martin, MBE, in 2012.

Awarded to an individual who is nominated by their club or discipline organiser, for any 'unfortunate misdemeanour' - nothing too serious, honestly. If there was a category in shooting for 'Out-Takes' or 'Bloopers' then this award would belong in that category.

The recipient of The Wooden Spoon is decided by the Staffordshire Smallbore Rifle Association, with the Wooden Spoon being presented at the Staffordshire Combined Open Meeting.

List Of County Trophies

The SSRA can boast a whole array of fine trophies in their collection, of which they are always proud to present to those successful in the various competitions in which they compete.  Moreover these much prized trophies can only be won by shooters who are Staffordshire residents.

However, there is one exception to the above 'Staffordshire residents only' rule - and that is for those competing for The 'Come Day - Go Day' Salver, whereby those shooters need not be Staffordshire residents.  The only stipulation is that they must be members of a properly constituted Rifle Club.
