500 Yards Open Date 19/6/21
Shooters were treated to a cold miserable day with showers intermitting through out the day. A half 44 gallon drum filled with fire wood made it sweet between shoots to gather around the fire and keep warm and watch fellow shooters perform in very minimal wind changes and the scores posted today were really amazing.
Target rifle was a solid win for Dave Mathews who produced a pair of 49's giving him a great aggregate of 98.8 .David Gardner was a few points back and he need to talk to his rifle and ask for more Centre Bullseyes (93.6)
F Standard A Grade was a 2 horse race with Richard McInnes coming out the winner shooting a pair of 59's ( 59.4 & 59.2 = 118.6)
Eddie Concannon was runner up with a consistant pair of 58's. (58.6 & 58.5 = 116.11)
One of the highlights in F Standard B Grade was Darryl Pinks first double possible. Darryl with nerves of steel produced a very creditable 120.14 and all his hard work came to fruition. We all at the Club were very happy for him and quite a few mutterings on the range were suggesting that he will be A Grade in the coming new shooting season. Paul Jenkins was runner up and he is also improving a heap and he shot a PB with a pair of 57's giving him 114.9.
The 2nd highlight was in F Open where scores were very close. Ryan Yeates produced a very masterful display to score a double possible with 17 X's( 120.17).Ryan has been very hard to catch and Rob Mitchel came in 2nd with a score of 120.16.
What a great competition 1 x the difference.
Frank Dutch was alone in F hunting class .Frank shot a creditable score 95.6
