Victorian Grand Championships – 2018

Mark Buchanan, Tim Walter and Allan Humbert attended the Victorian Championships held at Bendigo between 18 and 22 April 2018.

Mark shot particularly well during the Syme, finishing in 4th place, winning one range and finishing second, third, fourth and fifth at others.

Mark opened strongly in the Queens on Day 1 with a 50.9 and a 50.7 at 500 yards, but finished with a 48.4 at 600 yards to be 16th on the Board.

Mark shot a solid 148.17 on Day 2 and an equally solid 98.11 on Day 3, which included a 49.7 at 1000 yards.

Mark’s score of 394.48 in the Queens placed him 12th overall and 692.84 saw him finish in 4th place in the Grand Championship.

Tim entered A grade although entitled to shoot B grade. Had he shot in B grade and shot the same scores, he would have won Day 1 of the Syme, won the Syme Aggregate by 2 points, placed 10th in the Queens and come second in the Grand Championship!

Allan shot in F Standard A and started the Syme in blistering form, coming second on Day 1 with 176.10.

Day 1 and Day 2 of the Queens saw some good scores, and Day 3 saw a very good 57.4 at 1000 yards to finish 4th at that range.

Allan finished 12th in the Syme, 13th in the Queens and 10th in the Grand Aggregate.

The results were as follows:
