400 Yards Championship 22/1/22
Numbers were down as the forcast predicted heaps of rain and I think that detered shooters getting their shooting equiptment wet and having a miserable day.This was not to be as the rain did not effect shooters ( a few light drizzles) but the shooters that attended enjoyed the day at 400 yards.
David Gardner had a good day in Target Rifle taking Off rifle honours scoring a 96.8 he started with a 49 and followed on with a 47. Glen Cakebread who has recently retuned to the shooting fraternity was runner up to Dave with a 91.3
F Standard A grade was a convincing win to Darryl Pink who blitzed his opponants scoring a 119.8 and shooting a possible on his last application with a 60.5.Darryl has a new Brux barrel and it is giving him great results.Darryl was the handicap winner on the day for his great improvements I think our Handicaper will be watching his performances in the future matches.
Richard McInnes was runner up but 5 points behind Darryl. Richard scored a pair of 57's (114.7)
F Standard B was a close tussle with Tim Benger winning the grade with 109.5, very close behind was Alison Hansen 109.3.
