Cessnock OPM 2019

On Sunday May 18, the Roseville contingent of El Presidente Mark Buchanan, El Capitano Michael Cuda, Uncle Mike Hodder, The King Of Hexta Dmitri Kazakov, Phill Hodder, Gary Faulkner, Allan Humbert, Janet Beale, Adam Beale, Alex Macaulay, Pat Jacombs and the support crew of Andrew Macaulay and Phil Jacombs, gathered at the Cessnock range for their annual OPM. The weather was warm (unseasonably so!) and the breeze was practically non-existent. So shooters really only had to worry about mirage and the scores reflected this.
Numbers were down about 20% on last year’s turnout (I blame the election), but the camaraderie and hospitality were as good as ever and a great day on the range was had by all concerned. And, of course, the Hexta targets performed flawlessly. So the day ran smoothly and efficiently. The competition consisted of 3 matches, each of 10 counting shots at 600 yds. 

Overall, the Roseville crew performed well, with range prizes being won by Dmitri (silver) and Adam (silver) in TR-B, Allan (2 x silver) and The Captain (silver) in F-Std A, Janet (silver and 2 x bronze) in F-Std B, and Gary (a full set of Gold) in F-TR.

There was no surprise in the aggregate prizes, with Gary taking all before him in F-TR, Allan taking second prize in F-Std A and Janet winning 3rd prize in F-Std B. The Beales won the “most medals in a family” award with 5!
