DRA/City v Country weekend

Roseville had some busy shooters this weekend (15-16 July)… and before going into the details I want to thank Mike Hodder who did all the hand-loads for some RRC junior shooters (due to the factory ammo shortage). We also want to send hearty congratulations to Angus Martin who was also selected for the NSW State Team and received his numbered cap! Well done Angus!!!

Saturday

NSW Rifle Association’s District Rifle Competition team shoot (5 per team) was held at Malabar in the afternoon (with a bit of a breeze blowing) with 2+10 at 700m and 2+15 at 800m (max score of 125.15 TR and 150.15 F-Class) on manual targets. Roseville had a huge contingent with 11 representatives in the various NSDRA Target Rifle and F-Class teams. Our Rosevilleans did very well:

o   Angus Martin (TR Gold team) : scored 125.15
o   Phill Hodder (TR Gold team): scored 122.9
o   Adam Beale (TR Gold team): scored 119.8
o   Pat Jacombs (TR Green team): scored 119.6
o   Mike Hodder (TR Green team): scored 117.7
o   Gary Faulkner (FTR): scored 147.13 <<<  part  of winning team!
o   Alan Patrick (FTR): scored 144.10 <<<  part  of winning team!
o   Eva Patrick (FTR): scored 142.10 <<<  part  of winning team!
o   Michael Cuda (F-Std): scored 143.7
o   Allan Humbert (F-Std): scored 137.5
o   Peter Walters (F-Std): scored 149.7

While the NSDRA teams shot admirably, it was only the NSDRA FTR team who came home with winners prizes. Congrats to Gary, Alan, Eva and the rest of their NSDRA team!

Sunday

NSW Rifle Association’s City vs Country match was also held at Malabar starting in the morning (brrr very cold!) with 2+10 at 500m and 600m, and finished in the afternoon with 2+10 at 700m and 800m using manual targets. As you will see below, Roseville had a lot of representatives there which shows what a great, vibrant and active club we have.

The day had its issues (e.g. Pat lying down to shoot on a colony of ants and being bitten and having to move, Adam having only a few minutes to do his first detail due to team running out of time, mechanical target D6 was not working properly affecting Dmitri’s shoot etc) but overall everyone enjoyed themselves.

Despite it being a teams’ event, listed below are the individual results from RRC members (max score of 200.40 in TR and 340.40 in F-Class):

o   Angus Martin (City TR) scored an impressive 200.24…..and was top scorer of the day!
o   Dmitri Kazakov (City TR) scored 195.22 with 50.9 at 500m, getting the bull after his rifle cheek-piece had to be removed to replace a misfired round…
o   Phill Hodder (City TR) scored 195.12
o   Adam Beale (City TR) scored 194.19
o   Pat Jacombs (City U25 TR) scored 184.11 <<<part  of winning team (despite the ant bites!!)
o   Angus Langsford (Country U25 TR) scored 182.12
o   Gary Faulkner (City FTR): scored 236.16  <<< part  of winning team!
o   Alan Patrick (City FTR): scored 230.17 <<< part  of winning team!
o   Eva Patrick (City FTR): scored 221.6  <<< part  of winning team!
o   Michael Cuda (City F-Std): scored 225.14
o   Peter Walters (City F-Std): scored 224.11
o   Bob Kozminski (City F-Std): scored 220.15
o   Allan Humbert (City F-Std): scored 211.9

All in all the RRC members did a great job in their respective teams – well done to one and all with special congrats to Angus M, Pat, Gary, Alan, and Eva for making it to the podium and coming home winners.
