Satur­day saw a hand full of reg­u­lar shoot­ers turn up for an­other day at the range.

Nor­bert Sch­midt was the first to take aim in the 400 me­ter F Class (me­chan­i­cally sup­ported with tele­scopic sights) 10 shot match.

Nor­bert opened with a per­fect cen­tre shot fol­lowed by a 5 which he opted to keep then went on to shoot a string of bulls eyes (6’s ) and dead cen­tres (X’s) and a few 5’s to fin­ish with 58/4out of 60.

Steve Cruick­shank was next on the mound in the 308 F Class match, Steve let cut his first two sighters and then went on to shoot a mixed bag of 4’s,5’s and 6’s for a low first round score of 49/0.

Rob Wearne was next on the mound to take aim in the Full Bore (man­u­ally sup­ported open sights) 308 10 shot match.

Rob opted to cut his sighters and went on to shoot a pretty av­er­age score of 44/0 out of a pos­si­ble 50.

Last on the mound was Neil Attwood in the Full Bore 400 me­tre match.

Neil opened with two bulls eye sighters and then went on to shoot a mixed bag of 4’s and 5’s for a first round score of 46/0 out of a pos­si­ble 50.

Nor­bert was back down for his sec­ond 400 me­tre 11 shot match, Nor­bert opened with two bulls eyes(6’s) and then let loose a string of 5’s, 6’s and dead cen­tres(X) to fin­ish with 63/3 out of 66.

Steve was next on the range for his sec­ond at­tempt in the 400 me­tre 11 shot match. Steve opened with 4’s which he cut then went on to shoot a much bet­ter round with 5’s and 6’s and one X, to fin­ish 59/1.

Rob was back down for his sec­ond 400 me­tre Full Bore match opening with two 5’s which he kept, then went on to shoot an­other mixed bag of scores with 3’s,4’s,5’s and two V bulls to fin­ish with 48/2

Neil was back on the mound for his sec­ond range. Neil opened with a 4 and a 5, he cut the 4 and went on to shoot all over the place, not able to find the V bull he was look­ing for, Neil posted a dis­ap­point­ing sec­ond score of 38/0 out of a pos­si­ble 55.

Nor­bert Sch­midt posted a fi­nal score of 121/7 out of a pos­si­ble 126 in the the F Class com­pe­ti­tion fol­lowed by Steve Cruick­shank with a very low fi­nal score of 108/1 out of a pos­si­ble 126.

Rob Wearne took the hon­ours in the Full bore comp with a fi­nal tally of 92/2 out of a pos­si­ble 105 fol­lowed by Neil Attwood with a be­low av­er­age fi­nal score of 84/0.

The Um­pire ed­u­ca­tion pro­gram was headed by um­pire Lynne Kin­rade and held over two time slots giv­ing the learner um­pires, ju­nior and se­nior prac­ti­cal train­ing with um­pire men­tors on games played af­ter their ed­u­ca­tion ses­sion. The teams played in a re­laxed for­mat mix­ing together as re­quired which gave the teams an op­por­tu­nity to play other teams out­side of their grades.
