2011-2012 Season Finished

The 2011-2012 season has come to a close with another close finish in the Club Championship in A and B Grades. We had a new A Grade Champion, Dmitri Kazakov, who fought off a late charge from Mark Buchanan to win by 2 points, Dmitri finished the year with a total of 1188.122 and Mark 1186.142. Dmitri then went on to win the District Champion of Champions shoot with a score of 198.16 which was shot in cool and wet conditions by 2 points over Tim Roberts from Gosford Club.

B Grade was won on the final day of shooting by last years winner Jon Marriott with a score of 1172.99, second place was Phill Hodder with 1171.92.

In C Grade Richard Lund was victorious this season with a grand total of 1132.70, second place went to James Courteney on 750.23.

F Class was won in with a fine score of 1406.92 by Graham Coote who shot extremely well during the year and just missed out winning the Champion of Champions shoot by 1 point, a great effort. Second in the F Class Championship was Don McDonald on 1375.79

Our Junior Champ was again Alex Marriott, who was consistent through out the year and finished with 1092.57. Alex did well in the Junior Champion of Champions but unfortunately had equipment issues on the last range.

This years Arn Hammond Team shoot was an outstanding success, with both #1 TR and F Class Teams winning by a huge margin. Roseville #1 managed to win every range this year for an emphatic victory over Hornsby #1 by a whopping 19 points with Manly coming third. The F Class shooters shot consistently well also throughout the year, and were able to fight off a high scoring finish from North Sydney to claim victory in their class by a huge margin of 36 points!! They won 3-5 ranges this year.

There was more development throughout the year on the Hexta ET and a new version was trialed and tested. This system uses targets which are wireless, this is a great step forward and a World First! Dmitri and Vadim should be very proud of themselves on such an achievement.

I hope all Roseville shooters had a great year and good luck to all when the season starts again in July.
