Last season shoot

Roseville’s last shoot for the shooting year was shot on 29th May at 700m.

The weather was threatening and there was a strong possibility that it would be called off due to rain. It stopped raining though and the decision was made to start shooting. Only 3 brave souls shot though with others warming them selves in the clubhouse. Soon after shooting started the weather cleared up and the wind died off, it was like a very soggy shooting gallery. Mark started off in fine form shooting a near perfect 50.9, young C grader James then shot a very impressive 50.4. Andrew not to be left behind posted a great 50.6.

Mark had a goal in mind and set about beating Ian H’s “Cock of the Walk” for 700m of 100.17, he started strongly as ever and blitzed Ian’s previous score to shot a perfect 50.10, in doing so made it a clean sweep of top scores for this year on the final shoot! Well done Mark.

Andrew shot well again in his second shoot and scored a great 50.7 for a 100.13 for the day. James started off very strong after his 50 and the first 8 of his shots were bulls or centres, then unfortunately he shot two inners to finish. Still 98 is a magnificent achievement for a C Grader who hasn’t been shooting long at all. James had a couple of rounds left to shoot and guess what, they were a bull and a centre, which proves he can do it.

The Arn Hammond Team Shoots were dominated again by Roseville with Team #1 winning the Off Rifle Comp and the F Class team winning their comp. So well done again to all on another fine achievement.

So ends another shooting season with Mark once again raining supreme with an 1195.170 out of 1200, second was Ian H with 1190.127. B Grade was won by Grahame with 1151.87 and second Richard L with 1219.62. C grade was taken out by Alex shooting 1109.54 and Roger was second 624.30 (not shooting all ranges). F Class was blitzed again by Don with a great score of 1408, Don also scored 3 perfect 120’s during the year, and Marilyn was second with 1348.
