Mount Barker & District Rifle Club Inc.


700 Yards Club Championship 17/4/21

Shooters shot the last 700 Yds for this current season. Weather conditions were not easy on the shooters as very rapid wind changes were experienced  and the scores were of a low standard, no possibles   were recorded.'

Grant Charleston was top in Target Rifle with a great score of 94.8 ,Grant finished on a 4 but ended up the winner with a 3 shot lead from Graham Hancock (91,6).

F Standard A was a walk in the park for Eddie Concannon scoring a solid 115.7 and this was a great score under the difficult conditions. Eddie sporting a new barrel has it working very well, He also won the handicap section,  Richard Mcinnes was 8 points in arrears and Paul Bothwell  is thinking about taking up Lawn Bowls after his 97.1.

F Standard B was another win for Darryl Pink( 104.5) and last weeks winner Martin Craig was not for behind 

( 104.2).A very good effort for both shooters under the hard conditions.

F Open  was once again a good win by Ryan Yeates shooting a solid pair of 56's giving him a winning score of 112.6 .

Tim Manning was having a few problems with his new barrel and finished runner up to Ryan with a score  of 109.5

Mark DeLaine shot really well after a hiccup to the start of his shoot (winding the wrong way) but bounced back to score a 96.9 /100 Frank Dutch celebrating his 84th  birthday  was second with a score of 85.3.

A reminder for all shooters in South Australia that the annual Father & Sons match will be held on the Mt Barker Range on Sunday the 25th of April.  At the finish of the shoot a huge raffle will be held and there are some really great prizes to be won. A great Family outing and a good day for all shooters and families.
