The cup was presented to the club by Michael Coombs, who wanted a competition open to all members and disciplines.
The results are based on "percentage improvement" calculation, with the winning shooter the one who most improves on their average.
Another parent and son combination to take part were Clive Magson and his son Kieran, 7, who both started shooting this year.
