2019 Gosford OPM

Hot, steamy and 32 degrees confronted 4 Rosevilliers at the annual Gosford prize shoot. Phill attacked TR and Mike Cuda, Eva and Alan Patrick FTR.

The overall attending numbers were down on previous years with just 49 in total.

Wind and mirage playing tricky cards throughout the day with patches of little wind or disturbances to deliver some near perfect scores. Wind changed 180 degrees after lunch as has become the norm for Gosford.





Shot over 3 stages at 500M the final results delivered a clean possible result for Phill and 1st place in TR with 175.16. This win was especially special for Phill, as he used his recently acquired rifle from his mentor, the late David Hollister. And Mike Cuda pulled the rabbit out of the hat to take out FTR after crossfiring in the second stage with 202.22 (which proves that you should never give up!), with Eva 9 X’s behind to take 2nd place on 202.13 and Alan 4th place with 196.8.





A good presentation followed this OPM with the usual array of great prizes for winners. Thanks to Gosford RC who always put on a wonderful OPM and have great, friendly members. Results can be found here: http://shooting.hexsystems.com.au/competition/monitor/236
