135th NSW Queens

Top TR score in the Sargard Team Match

Various members from Roseville Rifle Club attended possibly the last Queen’s held at ANZAC Rifle Range at Malabar.

Shooting started on Wed 25th Jan with the two day McIntosh Lead Up shoot. Mark, Mike and Tim shot in this event. Mike secured two Silver and a Bronze medal over the two days shooting for range scores, and he finished in 9th place in B Grade.

Mark shot brilliantly at 700m in the second day of the lead-up posting a 50.10 “perfect score!” to take out that range. He finished in 17th place for the two days shooting.

There were some stoppages due to rain and also trespassers trying to gain entry to the range.

Roseville fielded one team in the very prestigious Sargard Teams Match, and were unlucky not to get second place in that shoot. On a brighter note, Jon Marriott shot very well under master coach Mark , he shot a range best 75.10 to be the best individual scorer out of all the shooters. Well done Jon.

Scores were mixed again during the Queen’s shoot for the Roseville contingency. Mark secured 3rd place for the second days aggregate, not dropping a point.  Peter Carroll scored a magnificent 60.6 in the second 300m to win that range in F Class B Grade.


Tim was unlucky to finish on an inner at 700 m on Day 3 of the Queens for a 49.8 as 50.9 was the highest score shot at that range.

Mark finished the Queen’s in 10th position.
