Shoot­ers up at range

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

SATUR­DAY saw five shoot­ers turn out for a very dif­fi­cult tar­get with a con­stant shadow at 300 me­tres.

The closer the tar­get, the smaller the tar­get, thus mak­ing it harder to sight on.

Nor­bert Sch­midt was first to set up his kit on the mound, shoot­ing in the F-Class comp. He was quick to find the cen­tre and squeezed off 10 quick shots to give him a score of 54 with one dead cen­tre from a pos­si­ble 60. Neil Attwood was next on the mound com­pet­ing in the Full Bore comp and opened with two bull eyes as sighters and kept them and went on to shoot a very fine first round score of 49/ 1 from a pos­si­ble 50. Mal­colm McKel­lar was down on the mound next in the Full Bore comp and pulled a mixed bag of shots to give him a score of 44.

Ron Schild was the next com­peti­tor in the Full Bore comp and also shot a mixed bag to give him a score of 38/3 from a pos­si­ble 50.

Ben Purvis, our new­est mem­ber was the last shooter on the mound and shot a re­ally mixed bag for a first round score of 32. Nor­bert Sch­midt was back again for his sec­ond 300 me­tre range and hit a score of 61/2 from a pos­si­ble 66. Neil Attwood was back again on the mound and squeezed off a fi­nal score of 50/1.

Mal McKel­lar was again on the mound pulling lower num­bers than usual, giv­ing him a fi­nal score of 52/1.

Ronny Schild was back for his 11-shot match and shot a plethora of mixed shots to give him a score of 44 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Ben Purvis was back again for his sec­ond range shoot and was hav­ing a hard time with his bor­rowed ri­fle which gave him a very low score of 28/1. Neil Attwood took out first place in the Full Bore comp with 99/2 from a pos­si­ble 105 fol­lowed by Mal McKel­lar.

Nor­bert Sch­midt took hon­ours in the F-Class Comp with a medi­ocre score of 115 from a pos­si­ble 126.
