Shoot­ers ham­pered

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

SATUR­DAY’S af­ter­noon tar­get shoot­ing ses­sion was ham­pered by an over­lay of cloud and con­stant gusts of wind which made hit­ting the cen­tre tar­get a chal­lenge.

Nor­bert Sch­midt was first on the mound and opened with a bull eye and a su­per bull eye and then went on to shoot a very fine first round with a score of 59/6 from a pos­si­ble 60 in the 10-shot F-Class com­pe­ti­tion.

Neil Attwood was next on the mound to com­pete in the Full Bore com­pand he squeezed off a string of fours and fives to give him a first round score of 43 from a pos­si­ble 50.

Ben Purvis was next down with his gear to see if he could bet­ter his re­cent scores. Ben opened with a bird and then went on to pull mainly fours and threes to score 37.

Club stal­wart Ron Schild was the last com­peti­tor on the mat to have a crack at the small tar­get and let loose a mixed bag of shots to give him a score of 41/1.

Sch­midt was back again for his sec­ond 400-me­tre range and he reg­is­tered a score of 62 from a pos­si­ble 66 in the 11- shot match.

Attwood was back for his sec­ond range and shot a mixed bag to give him a fi­nal tally of 43 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Purvis was again on the mound to try and bet­ter his first round and squeezed off some im­pres­sive shots to give him a fi­nal tally of 46/3 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Schild was again on the mound and went on to shoot a mixed bag for a fi­nal score of 48/2 from a pos­si­ble 55.

Sch­midt took first place with 121/ 6 in the F- Class comp. Schild took hon­ours with 89/3 fol­lowed by Neil Attwood on 86 and Ben Purvis in third on 83/3 in the Full Bore Comp.
