WARA Queens 2019

In late Sept, the State F-Class teams headed nearly 4000km from Sydney to the lovely city of Perth and then headed north to the slightly less scenic Pinjar Range.  The Pinjar range is unusual in that the firing point is in a constant place near the modern club house and the butts are positioned in sections at various distances. A couple of other things that are quite noticeable are that the flies on the mound are ever present, the firing point (complete with artificial grass) is nicely sloped for TR (which becomes a bit awkward for rear bags for F-Class), and the terrain is very flat with not a lot of the lush green grass we are used to at Hornsby (but the wild flowers are very pretty).  One other major factor at Pinjar is the mirage!

The National F Class Team Matches commenced with Match One being shot at 900 metres. Match Two commenced with the winds making it interesting for all teams. In the NSW representative teams were the following Rosevillians:

  • F-TR: Eva Patrick and Alan Patrick (with “Gosford Gary”)
  • F-STD: Peter Walters

NSW tried hard but the winners were the Victorian F Open Team, West Australian F Standard team and Queensland FTR Team. Special congrats to the NSW FTR team that came 2nd.

Staying on for the WARA Queens was Alan and Eva Patrick.

Roseville is very proud of our State team competitors!
