Angus Martin was the only member to medal on Day 3 coming second to win the silver medal in C grade with 42.01 at 600m.

Mark need a 50.00 to win the Queens at the last range, however, after recording 5 bulls, his scorer gave him an incorrect 3 minute warning, when in fact, he had about 8 minutes remaining, and the next shot, fired in haste in tricky conditions, was an inner. Bad luck Mark!

Mark & Co

Next time…



Little did we know that Mark had in fact won the Target Rifle A Grade Grand Championship with 733.069! Mark was almost at Goulburn when your Captain rang to tell him the news, which gave me my only opportunity to collect a Grand Championship Gold medal and No 9 Queens Badge on Mark’s behalf!

Allan Humbert finished in a creditable 9th place in the F Class Standard Grand Championship with 834.34

It was very nice to see six members of Roseville competing in these Championships and doing so well. Conditions were not easy and it was a credit to Roseville shooters, who do not get much meaningful wind experience at Hornsby Range, to take on the challenge at Canberra range.

Allan seems to hit another gear when he travels away to a big competition and it was very pleasing to see Angus do so well in his first attendance at Canberra.

Mark was so close to a ride in the chair, but at least had the consolation of winning the Grand Championship.

Well done guys.

Tim Walter.


NSDRA OPM Hornsby Rifle Range 4th Nov 2012

This years District prize meeting was a great success with 72 competitors competing on a warm and mostly sunny day. There were a few 50’s in A Grade in the first range 500m and Roseville’s Alex Marriott shot a 50.2 to take out C Grade. There were only 2 60’s in F Class and none in F Open.

600m was a bit different and certainly more challenging for all the shooters. The sun came out with vengeance the mirage boiled feverishly so much so you could see it through the open sights! There were no 50’s in either TR classes and only one 60 in F Class. Phill Hodder from Roseville took out A Grade with a 49.7.

At 700m things became more steady with the wind mostly staying steady from the right, those who grouped on the left of the bull had more luck as the wind tended to drop off rather than pick up. There were a handful of 50’s in A Grade and one in B Grade. Rob Trodden won his first range medal in an OPM with a 49.1 in C Grade, well done Rob. Roseville’s Allan Humbert came second in F Class with a 60.1.

It was decided not to shoot the Masters as time was getting on so it was down to the parade ground for the final presentation and cool drink.

Phill Hodder was lucky to get 5th place in A Grade, Alex Marriot took 2nd spot in C Grade by a centre and Allan Humbert was 3rd in FS A Grade.

It was a great day had by all and a huge thanks goes out to all who helped during the day to make it an enjoyable and well run event that our district should be proud of.

Blast from the past for two Roseville members

Tim Walter and Ian Palmer reminisce


“I took a photo of this old photo at Mudgee this weekend.

It shows Graeme Berman being chaired by his club mates after winning  A Grade in 1970.

On the left, from back, Tim Walter, Tony McGuigan, Andrew Powell, Ian Palmer, Ken lee.

Right from back Bert Pride, John Moore, Rod Evans, Peter Berman (little boy).

Interestingly, Andrew Powell, one of the great shooters, was once a Roseville member too.

So we have 3 Roseville, or former Roseville members, in this almost 42 year old photo.

I was 20 years old then!”

NSDRA OPM Hornsby Rifle Range 6th Nov 2011

65 competitors signed in to compete in this years NSDRA Open Prize Meeting. The morning started off overcast, but this soon burnt off and become sunny and hot by starting time. Shade tents were at the ready as shooting commenced in earnest at 9am.

Hornsby 500m mound


Six 50’s were scored at 500m in A Grade, the best being John Krill from Mosman Neutral Bay with 50.6. Phill Hodder from Roseville shot a 49.5 to win the range in B Grade, C Grade was won with a great score of 50.6 by Robert Stevenson from Nth Sydney. In F Class Std Dennis Smith from Gosford won that range with a 60.6. Rod Davies from Cessnock shot a 60.4 in F Open to win that distance.

At 600m conditions must have been a bit tougher as only 4 50’s were recorded over all the grades and no 60’s in F Class. First in A Grade was Dmitri Kazakov from Roseville with a 50.6. James Martin also from Roseville shot brilliantly in B Grade with a 50.7.   Robert Stevenson from Nth Sydney shot well again in C Grade with a 48.1. In F Std John Peters won that range with a 58.4. F Class Open was won by Ben Ferrara from Nth Sydney with a score of 59.3.

Lunch was served in Nth Sydney’s clubhouse with cold drinks sausage sangers, salad, cakes and slices on offer. The temperature was still hot so a decision was made to erect the shade tents over the mounds. After they were put up some looked to the sky and decided they would be better served as protection from the rain, which was fast approaching.

700m was going to make or break competitors in the final shoot. With the storm coming fast those who shot early had some good conditions, those in the middle got some what wet and those shooting last got a shooting gallery.

A Grader Peter Theobald from Nth Sydney shot very well with a 50.7 to win that range. Phill Hodder from Roseville won in B Grade also with a 50.7. Gail Roberts from Gosford shot a wonderful 50.3 in C Grade to dominate that range. Stephen Hart from Rail and Tram was first in F Std with a 59.5 F Open was won in fine for by Rod Davies with a near perfect 60.8.

After the results were calculated the top 8 TR shooters regardless of grade shot off in the Masters Competition, another 10 shot match at 700m. Mark Buchanan from Roseville came home triumphant with a 50.8 followed closely by Josh Gordon from Nth Sydney with 50.7.

Gosford District Rifle club Annual open Prize Meeting 2011

The day started foggy and muggy. While driving to Gosford I passed through some very heavy fog. This was not very promising. However the road was empty and I arrived at Gosford Rifle Range half-an hour earlier than I expected, so I was able to enjoy the beautiful view to the National Park valley.

Unfortunately from Roseville RC only Fernando and I were able to attend this event. However I noticed many other North Shore District shooters from other clubs.

I spent some time talking to a few people and finding out that some local shooters do not like Target No1 and prefer Target No7 as it is above the valley and less affected by side wind. Target No 1 however is very close to the slope and wind can not only be left-right, but also may have a vertical effect. I have not used my scope for almost a year while shooting on the electronic targets at the wind-protected Hornsby range, so I sat for a while with my scope watching the wind flags and trying to remember how to use the scope and correlate the mirage with the flags.

The competition was opened by Wayne Bunting and Dennis Smith.

Then target numbers were drawn and I was lucky to shoot my first stage on Target 3, which is 2 targets away from scary Target 1. I finished the 1st stage with 50.6, however the draw for the second stage put me on Target 1.

The wind was consistent and I was able to shoot my second stage with 50.4.

At the third draw I was again given Target 3 and managed to shoot a very good result of 75.8.

Michael Green form Kambalda (WA) was shooting with me and managed to get an unbelievable result 75.12!!!


The competition was very well organized. The only confusion I had was, as I haven’t participated in such an event before I did not put my number on the score card. When the target was drawn and announced I did not know what target I was on. The range Officer kindly helped to rectify my confusion and competition started.



The weather was unstable and twice the shooting was interrupted by heavy rain. Shooters were given optional sighters.

I would like to specifically mention Gosford’s markers! They were unbelievably quick and reliable. There were only a few times that the Range Office called to examine a target. On my last shot on the last stage, when I removed the bolt from my rifle, I missed the target being pulled, marked and lifted up again. Knowing my habit to fire my last shot onto the wrong target, I was really afraid when I was watching and waiting for the target to go down, but it does not. However the check scorer reassures me that everything is alright and I was lucky to get 75.8 on the last stage.

Fernando Gregorio was very disappointed with his results which actually were very good as he took 3rd place in B grade with the aggregate result of 169.12 and won a medal.

It was a really great event with a lot of friendly people around and I want to thank my Club and everyone who supported me in my first Championship outside our range.

The Champion of Champions Shoot 2011

The Champion of Champions shoot was shot on 4th June in near perfect conditions on a clear and sunny afternoon. The wind only came up slightly in the last 2 ranges.

Mathew did an outstanding job in F Class and scored two 60 possibles at 500 and 700m to finish with 232.12. This is the first time Matt has shot a 60, a great achievement. He was narrowly beaten by Dennis Smith from Gosford RC with 236.18.

Alex did very well also, shooting 182.8, to come second in the juniors behind Evan Jones. Alex has only recently started using a new rifle and he has showed some early promise with it, good luck Alex for next year.

Online results section is implemented on the Web Site

From today the Roseville Rifle club shooters will be able to see and print the shooting session online.

Currently the system is being tested with the Internet Explorer, Firefox and Google Chrome. The HEX Systems Engineers have been working to achieve the compatibility with Opera web browsers.

The page is very familiar to the shooters using the HEXTA-001 electronic targets terminals, which are working in the slave (scorer/spectator) mode. In this mode they can switch online between the targets (button “Target”) and between the current and the previous sessions (“Back” and “Forward” buttons).

“Zoom” button allows to zoom the scoring sheet in exactly the same way as on the range terminals. A user using touch screen devices can use the screen buttons to control the scoring system.

Members can print out these scoring sheets using their browser’s built in print function.
