Shooters up at range
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.
