700 Yds Trophy Shoot Report
19 shooters braved the cold conditions to contest the 700 yds Trophy Shoot.
Weather conditions were a mystery as the marksmen were baffled as what the weather conditions were doing as quite a few of us did not have a clue what was happening.
We had the first round 10 shots and followed up with a 15 shot match to finish the day off,
Target Rifle saw Graham Hancock come out the winner with a score of 116.04 .Grant Charleston was 3 points behind him with 112.4.
F Class A saw Richard McInnes sneak in with a 1 point win with 131,4 ,Jim Lyon came in 2nd with 130.6 .
The surprise of the day was in F standard B Grade, Allan Morgan a very staunch Target Rifle Shooter injured his shoulder and could not sling up to shoot his usual competition. Allan decided to use a rest and for the first time contest F Class, his score of 127.0 gave him the grade win and he only used his iron sight to do this with no telescope. Allan shoulder will take some time to heal so F Class B wants to watch out as he will be shooting it for awhile .A welcome visitor Hamish Watts done well on his 1st go at F Class and was runner up to Allan with a solid score of 124.2.
Another great tussle in F Open where Tim Manning scored a win with 143.11 to beat Rob Mitchell with 142.8.
Rob although beaten by 1 point had the last laugh as he counted Tim out in the Handicap section to win the Handicap trophy on the day.
This coming Saturday we will be back again at 700 Yds to contest the Club championship.
