Report from Glenrowan

“Spend Easter at Glen Rowan” (Victoria) the poster said…so two intrepid Rosevillians did just that driving the 7 hours to do so. Janet Beale and Adam Beale competed at the one-day Ovens and Murray District OPM and the one-day Wangaratta Prize meeting which is shot on the same range therefore they also have a combined two-day aggregate. A picturesque range running 3 Hextas and 6 paper targets with a good tree line on each side and a large treed hill as the backstop.  It was sunny both days with a light mirage and some interesting flags that sometimes couldn’t decide which way they wanted to fly.

There were 72 competitors on day 1 and 63 on day 2 of which 11 competitors came from NSW (not the usual faces either!) with a good mix between TR and F-Class (biggest class was F-Std) So how did RRC do?

Adam (shooting TR-B) scored 2 possibles (one on each day); and took home

  • 4th place badge on day 1;
  • 2nd place badge on day 2;
  • 1st place two day aggregate badge and prize money
  • Top Junior Target Rifle cash prizes for each day

Janet (shooting FTR) scored 2 possibles (one on each day); and took home

  • 2 range prizes – one of these was a nail-biter 90-5 and the other was a phenomenal 60-9.
  • 4th place badge on day 1;
  • 4th place badge on day 2;
  • 4th place two day aggregate badge (only 3 points behind the winner)

The presentation speakers said this is the best country prize meeting in Victoria and the Beale’s agreed that it was up there with Wingham as a competition worth the drive for.
