Bathurst OPM

Two weeks after the Bathurst 1000 at Mount Panorama,  the Bathurst Rifle range was back in operation and humming for their annual Open Prize Meeting.  Bathurst is just under 3 hours away, but that was far enough away that only two intrepid Roseville RC members made the jaunt. Mark Buchanan was shooting in Target Rifle and Janet Beale in FTR.

The day was sunny without any sign of rain clouds; not surprising given the drought. The wind started out mild and increased a bit through the day – when it was blowing it was mostly coming straight across the range from the paddock to the right; and of course there was mirage to deal with once it warmed up. It wasn’t as easy as it sounds, there was some “twitchiness” to the fickle winds/mirage and, being a country range, the flies were ever present.

There were three details to the day’s events: two of 2+10 at 500yds, and one of 2+15 at 600yds.

Congrats to Mark who came 3rd in 2 ranges (500yds and 600yds) and came 4th overall in TR-A.

Congrats to Janet who came 1st at 600yds and came 3rd overall in FTR.

Certainly our country hosts did a great job – thanks to Bathurst RC for putting on this great event.
