Fernando Scoops The Pool at Lithgow!

On Sunday 1 December 2013, Fernando, Mark and Tim (AKA The Three Muscatears) attended the Lithgow Prize Meeting on a clear, mild, sunny, Sunday.



The course of fire was 500y, 500y and 600y.

Fernando started with a 49.3 at the first 500y and followed it with a fine 50.3 at the second 500y

Mark started off in winning form with a 50.3 at the first 500y, followed by 50.8 at the next 500y.

Tim started with a 48.4 at both the 500y ranges and continued with the same score at 600y!

Unfortunately, Mark struck tricky conditions at the final 600y and finished with an uncharacteristic  46.3.

Fernando had a high first sighter, but was in the centre for the next 3 shots and finished with 49.6.

Fernando won 500, 500 and 600 yards in B Grade and of course, blitzed the B Grade Aggregate with a total of 148,12, which would have placed him 8th in A Grade.

The top three places in A Grade all fell to Lyndhurst shooters, namely, Ben Emms, Rob Sweegers and Les Frazer.

TGJB (The Great Jim Bailey) came 4th!

So, as they say Fernando, “Congratulations and welcome to A grade”.

I am sure you will soon be making your mark there, even using that bloody bloop tube!

Well done mate!

Tim Walter, Captain.
