Sunday 19th August - 700M Practice

Well today was made for shooting with virtually no wind, a fine mirage and even light. It was designated a practice day so club members were free to experiment in search for the perfect ammunition recipe. As expected very high scores were recorded even though half way through the morning the electronic targets went on strike thus causing shooting to revert to the paper target with club members rostered to the butts. Congratulations to the Off Rifle winners: F Class 'A' - Roy Slater 117.9 F Class 'B' - John Farmer 113.5 TR 'A' - Bruce Scott 100.16 TR 'C' - Ricky Burgess 88.6 ...

Sunday 12th August - 700m Results

The weather was again perfect for shooting with light wind and a readable mirage. 18 club members and three visitors enjoyed a pleasant morning shooting at what might be considered the easiest distance in the club program. As expected off rifle scores were high causing many to exceed their handicap. I am sure handicaps for next week will reflect these results. Congratulations to the Off Rifle winners: F Class 'A' - Roy Slater 116.9 F Class 'B' - John Farmer 114.6 TR 'A' - Bruce Scott 100.15 TR 'B' - Bob Hawkins 99.11 TR 'C' - Ricky Burgess 91.2 Handicap Results (F Class scoring, HPS 120): 1st...

Sunday 5th August - Long Range Club Championship Results

The weather was perfect for long range shooting with light winds and switching mirage. The opportunity to post a club championship score attracted 22 club members with shooting getting under way at 8am and finishing at 1.30pm. 700m proved popular with few points being lost while 800m was a little more challenging. 900M, as usual, proved difficult for the inexperienced and experienced alike with the top target rifle shooters showing great skill to hitting the bull consistently. Congratulations to the Grade winners:  F Class 'A' - Roy Slater 170.8 F Class 'B' - John Jenkin TR 'A' - Eric Christie 147.21 (168.9) TR '...
