Wingham OPM 2019

Wingham is the probably the largest OPM in NSW outside of a Queens and it didn’t disappoint this year as there were over 100 shooters that attended the 2019 Wingham OPM on 8-9 June. While the Sydney rains put some people off attending, Wingham had cloud on Saturday with little to no wind and sunshine with a slight breeze and some mirage on Sunday. From Roseville we had Target Riflers:

  • A Grade: Mark Buchanan, Pat Jacombs
  • B Grade: Angus Langsford, Rob Trodden, and Adam Beale
  • C Grade: Oliver Bishop

And in F-Class:

  • F-Std-A: Peter Walters
  • F-Std-B: Dmitri Kazakov, and Janet Beale.

This was Rob’s first OPM in almost 2 years  – good to see you back in competition Rob!  This was Oliver Bishops 1st OPM ever. Phill Hodder was also attending to help coach the Shore boys who are also members of RRC (this coaching role was very useful when he had to perform “emergency surgery” on Oliver Bishop’s rifle and trigger). Peter Walters retired after day 1 due to food-related illness but has recovered since then. Phil Jacombs was photographer and supporter of all.

Such was the level of competition that on Day 1, if you were in Target Rifle A Grade and you had dropped a single point then you would be in 11th position or lower! Congrats are extended to Jim Bailey and Mitch Bailey of Holsworthy who came 1st / 2nd in the grand aggregate! Overall, our Roseville people represented the club in fine form and many came home with medals or awards:

In target Rifle:

  • Mark B: 1stplace range prize against very steep competition
  • Adam B: three 1stplace range prizes, a 2nd place range prize, a daily aggregate 1st place trophy and then 2nd place prize in the grand aggregate
  • Angus L: a 3rdplace range prize and a 3rd place in the daily aggregate prize.
  • Oliver B: a 2ndplace range prize

In F-Class:

  • Dmitri K: two 2ndplace range prizes, a 3rd place range prize, a daily aggregate 1st place trophy
  • Janet B: two 1stplace range prizes, a 3rd place range prize, two daily aggregate 2nd place trophies, and then 1st place prize in the grand aggregate.

 Well done to all our RRC shooters and special congrats to Janet Beale on her first FStd-B Grade win!!!

Adam Beale
