Chal­lenge at range

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY was a very chal­leng­ing 600-me­tre dou­ble range due to the heavy cloud cover.

Five mem­bers turned up to try their hand and eye on the range.

First up was Nor­bert Sch­midt shoot­ing in the F- Class ( tele­scoped, sand­bagged 308) comp who squeezed off eight dead cen­tres to help him to a first range score of 58 from a pos­si­ble 60.

Neil Attwood was the next com­peti­tor on the mound shoot­ing in the Full Bore di­vi­sion who shot a mixed bag for a score of 45 out of 50.

Mal­colm McKel­lar was next on the mound in the Full Bore comp and let loose with a flurry of su­per V Bulls to give him a first range score of 48/4 from a pos­si­ble 50.

Ron Schild was the next Full Bore com­peti­tor on the mound and found a cou­ple of bulleyes to give him a score of 43/1.

Nor­bert Sch­midt was back for his sec­ond 600 me­tre range and went on to shoot a mixed bag to post a sec­ond range score of 62 from a pos­si­ble 66.

Neil Attwood was back for his sec­ond range shoot and had a plethora of mixed shots to give him a fi­nal tally of 51/2 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Mal­colm McKel­lar was the next shooter on the mat and opened with two bullseyes which he kept and then let loose an­other flurry of fine shots for a fi­nal tally of 54/5 from 55.

Ron Schild was the last com­peti­tor on the mound and squeezed off some pretty good shots to post a fi­nal score of 51/2 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Over all we had a very chal­leng­ing and re­lax­ing day with Nor­bert Sch­midt post­ing a dou­ble range score of 120 from a pos­si­ble 126.

Mal­colm McKel­lar took hon­ours in the Full Bore comp with a fi­nal score of 102/9 from a pos­si­ble 105.

Neil Attwood came in sec­ond fol­lowed closely by Ron Schild.

A big thank you to our marker and for any­one in­ter­ested the club meets ev­ery Satur­day at 1pm at the ri­fle club be­tween Port Dou­glas and Moss­man.
