Lyndhurst Prize Meeting – Easter 2018

Mark Buchanan, Andrew Martin, Angus Martin and Tim Walter attend the Lyndhurst Prize Meeting held on 31 March and 1 April 2018.

A Teams Match was conducted on Friday afternoon on 30 March at 600 yards and the scores were as follows: Mark 49.3, Tim 49.1, Andrew 48.0, Angus 49.7 = 195.11. Although this was not good enough to beat the young lads from Sydney, three of whom are in the Palma Team, we did finish second, which was pleasing in that we beat the Lyndhurst Team and two other teams.

The Day 1 Aggregate was shot over 500, 600, and 600 yards on Saturday and saw Mark shoot 150.17 to win the TR A Grade Day 1 Aggregate by one centre from Chris Schwebel.

Shooter Grand Aggregate
Mark 299.38 – 1st
Angus 294.36 – 10th
Andrew 289.24 – 3rd– B
Tim 283.18 – 17th

Mark won the Grand Aggregate with 299.38, narrowly avoiding a shoot off with Matthew Shepherd, who finished second with 299.35.

Angus did well to finish 10th in the Grand Aggregate in a very strong field of top A Grade shooters.

The strength of the field was demonstrated by the fact that Angus finished 7th with a 50.7 at 500 yards on Day 1, 10th with a 49.7 at 600 yards on Day 1, and 16th with a 49.7 at 500 yards on Day 2!

Andrew was unfortunate in that his sling broke at some stage, costing him valuable points.

Tim is still finding form for Bendigo!

Tim Walter.
