Per­fect day

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY saw four keen shoot­ers turn out for a near per­fect day with only three set­ting up their ri­fles to shoot from the 600 me­tre mound. Ev­ery one had trou­ble with the first range due to a mild mi­rage and a con­stant breeze com­ing up the range. Mal­colm McKel­lar took honours in the Full Bore comp with a dou­ble range score of 97/4 from a pos­si­ble 105 with Neil Attwood fol­low­ing at a dis­tance on 90/ 3. Nor­bert Sch­midt was the only com­peti­tor in the F class match with a fi­nal score of 112/4 from a pos­si­ble 126.

Nor­bert Sch­midt was quick to set up on the 600 me­tre mound and also quick to squeeze off ten vary­ing shots to gain a first range score of 51/1 from a pos­si­ble 60.

Neil Attwood was the next man down to shoul­der his 308 in the Full Bore comp. Neil shot all over the tar­get to gain a first round score of 42/1 from a pos­si­ble 50 in the ten shot match.

All the shoot­ers, tongue in cheek, blamed the marker for giv­ing them low scores. A big thankyou to the range marker, Ron Schild for do­ing a fine job.

There will be no weekly meet­ing this Satur­day due to a prize shoot at Ma­reeba on Sun­day, start­ing at 8 am. The range is off Chewko Road on Roiko Road. Tar­get shoot­ing will be as usual on the fol­low­ing Satur­day, 1 pm, at the range at Kil­laloe.
