MDRA ANZAC Day shoot

A warm, sunny afternoon, with a moderate S-W breeze, greeted a small band of Roseville shooters on ANZAC day at Malabar.

A moving remembrance ceremony was held, with the raising of the Australian and New Zealand flags and the Last Post (played by Evan Jones of Manly club).

Gary Faulkner, Bob Kozminski, Allan Humbert and Pat Jacombs then headed to the 600m mound for two 15 shot matches.

The breeze, while moderate, was deceptive and quite a few shooters fell to its fishtailing nature. During the first match, there were a number of delays due to target issues and some shooters had to move to different lanes to complete their matches. Gary chose not to shoot on the day.

Aggregate scores were as follows:

 Target Rifle, A-grade  F-Std, A-grade
 Bob Kozminski 166.14
 Pat Jacombs 143.13  Allan Humbert 161.5

Overall, the Roseville shooters found the conditions tougher than they liked.
