Marty bat­tles the mi­rage on range

Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS -

very dif­fi­cult, it was noth­ing to what Lang Lang turned on, on Satur­day.

The warm day ex­as­per­ated the strength of the mi­rage and this, com­bined with a very fickle wind proved to be a test for all shoot­ers.

Marty shot 85.7 at 500 and was ranked 12th and then at 600 he shot 86.6 to be ranked 5th along with sig­nif­i­cant in­sights into work­ing in con­di­tions where mi­rage is an is­sue.

Back at Vi­o­let Town the con­di­tions were no bet­ter in­clud­ing a very sharply chang­ing and un­pre­dictable wind, again.

The day also proved to be an ideal test bed for some of the new loads be­ing pre­pared for the State team com­pe­ti­tions.

The right to be called top shot proved to a very close match be­tween Ge­off James and Norm Line­han, two of the ECDRA’s most ex­pe­ri­enced shoot­ers.

It was Norm with 108.03 who edged out Ge­off with a score of 107.02, a very close tus­sle.

Other scores were Chi Som­long shot a 97.04 and Richard God­den with one stage only a 41.01.

Next week shoot­ing will be at the Vi­o­let Town Shoot­ing Com­plex for the Dragon Diesel Chal­lenge, shoot­ing will com­mence at 9am.

The Dragon Diesel chal­lenge is al­ways a lot of fun and new shoot­ers are most wel­come to join in to con­test the fan­tas­tic range of tro­phies pro­vided by the spon­sors.
