Near per­fec­tion at Moss­man range

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY was a near per­fect day at the Ri­fle Range for the Moss­man District Ri­fle Club’s 700-me­tre dou­ble range shoot­ing event.

There was a light breeze and a very light mi­rage to give all six club mem­bers a good re­lax­ing af­ter­noon shoot.

First to set his ri­fle up was Nor­bert Sch­midt shoot­ing in the F-Class com­pe­ti­tion.

Nor­bert squeezed off seven per­fect shots and fin­ished with a first range score of 57 out of 60.

Gus Gus­meroli was the next F Class shooter down and had a very mixed bag to give him a fi­nal first range score of 49 from a pos­si­ble 60.

Gus re­tired af­ter his first round as he could not get com­fort­able on the 700-me­tre range.

Mal­colm McKel­lar was next on the mound in the Full Bore comp and let loose a pro­fu­sion of fault­less shots for a first round score of 49/3 from a pos­si­ble 50.

Rick Mis­chlewski was next on the mound shoot­ing in the Full Bore comp and squeeze off an abun­dance of bullseyes to vir­tu­ally repli­cate McKel­lars, with a first round score of 49/2 out of a pos­si­ble 50.

Our new­est mem­ber, Rachael Pow­ell was up on the mound next us­ing a bor­rowed 308 scoped ri­fle in the F Class comp.

Rachael was coached by Steve Cruick­shank to get her fa­mil­iar and com­fort­able with the ex­pe­ri­ence of shoot­ing for the first time and shot a mixed bag to give her a first range score of 49 from a pos­si­ble 60.

Neil Attwood was next up shoot­ing in the Full Bore comp and shot a fairly con­sis­tent round for a score of 46 out of a pos­si­ble 50.

Sch­midt was back again to com­pete in the sec­ond 700-me­tre, 11-shot match for score of 63 out of 66.

McKel­lar was back again to con­tend in the 700 me­tre Full Bore Open sight shoot, fin­ish­ing with a sec­ond round score of 54/6 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Rachael Pow­ell was back for her sec­ond range, scor­ing 46/1 from 66.

Neil Attwood let go a plethora of fine shots to give him a fi­nal tally of 53/5.

Sch­midt took hon­ours in the F Class Comp with a fi­nal dou­ble range score of 120/6 from 126 fol­lowed by Rachael Pow­ell with 92/1.

Mal­colm McKel­lar took hon­ours in the Full Bore Comp.
