Isis Town and Country - - Sport - By JULIE GE­ORGE

THE newly re­named Childers Ri­fle and Pis­tol Club has had con­sis­tent suc­cess in both Ri­fle and Pis­tol dis­ci­plines.

At the Nor­grove/Sugar Coast Shield shoot held on March 8, 14 mem­bers from Childers and sis­ter club Mun­dub­bera trav­elled to South Kolan to com­pete in the sec­ond round of the 80-match Sil­hou­ette shoot.

Ju­niors Matthew Rayner, Cal­lum Hick­ling, Josh Cock­er­ton and Josh Ruane com­bined to win the John Jack­son Ju­nior Shield.

This is the first time in quite a while the club beat the very strong Gympie team.

Other win­ners were Dale Cock­er­ton and Julie Ge­orge (Julie 2).

The fol­low­ing week at the Bingera/South Kolan Prize Shoot, An­ton Perk took out sec­ond prize in bench rest on both days, while Julie 2 and Dale again fin­ished sec­ond in their re­spec­tive grades.

Greg Ten­nent hit the big time on the week­end with a per­fect score of 80 in the sil­hou­ette shoot.

An elated Greg was beam­ing with pride with his first-ever per­fect score.

Hans Hum­mer ju­nior did well at the Gold Coast Joan-Yet Foy Me­mo­rial Pis­tol Shoot. Hans broke grade with both scores, as he tal­lied 535 in sports pis­tol and 499 in air pis­tol.
