The event was shot over 300m 500m 700m and 800m.

Phill’s scores were: 47.1, 50.5, 50.4 and 49.2 for a total of 196.12.

Phill did not start as well as he would have liked at 300m scoring a 47.1, but he settled down at the next range with a 50.5, followed by a 50.4 at 700m.

Phill was unlucky not to get his third possible 50 for the day at 800m, when his last shot went wide at 3 o’clock.

Tim Roberts from Gosford won the day only dropping one point! Geoff King from Hornsby was second with two points down.

Angus Martin

Junior Club Champion 2013

Angus Martin was the Junior Club Champion in Target Rifle. His scores, as indicated in the attached photograph, were; 44.2, 49.3, 48.5 and 50.5. This was Angus first 49 and first 50! What a good time to get them to win the event. I have not seen a C Grade shooter string so many V bulls together before now.

Angus’s position has improved markedly in recent weeks and this has obviously aided his improvement as much as his new shooting jacket.

Keep up the good shooting Angus. I hope you are available for Arn Hammond next year!

Jenny Saleeba was the Club’s F Class Open Champion, but unfortunately, she could not attend the shoot-off due to a prior commitment in Canberra. Maybe next year Jenny?

Allan Humbert was the Club’s F Class Standard representative and Allan shot 227.8 to come third. One bad range spoiled Allan’s chances and he has now gone touring on his motor bike! Well done everybody and thank you to all those club and family members who attended to help with scoring, marking and to give our reps support on the day.

 Tim Walter, Captain
