West Wallsend Prize Meeting at Cessnock Range on 14 July 2013

Gary Faulkner, Fernando Gregorio, Robert Kozminski and Tim Walter attended the West Wallsend Prize Meeting last Sunday.
The weather was beautiful and conditions were generally easy but a watchful eye had to be kept on the mirage which reversed direction on occasions. There was a very strong F Class A Grade contingent and scoring was high. We shot 500y, 500y and 600y. Gary Faulkner shot 59.07, 59.06, and 58.01 for a total of 176.14 to finish 9th, but only three points behind the winner Brett Bond with 179.19.

Robert Kozminski was attending his first prize meeting with Roseville since becoming a member the day before! Robert shot a credible 55.03, 53.01, and 52.02 to finish with 160.06 in F Class B Grade.

Fernando Gregorio shot 48.03, 49.02 and 47.05 to finish with 144.10 in 16th position in A Grade, however, he was not happy with the way his rifle performed.

Tim Walter shot 48.04, 50.06 and 50.03 to give him 148.13 and 8th position in A Grade. Tim picked up a bronze medal for his 50.06.

Don Thompson of Natives Rifle Club arrived and departed in style, piloting a helicopter!

Duncan Davies, not surprisingly, took out the day with 50.09, 50.09, and 50.05, stating that the last range was difficult!

Well done Duncan on a fine 150.23.

Tim Walter. Captain.
