Mansfield Courier - - Sport Courier - By MATT POW­ELL

ON Satur­day, De­cem­ber 14, the Wan­garatta Ri­fle Club com­peted over a range of 300m.

The con­di­tions on the day were sunny with tricky and vari­able west­erly winds and strong mi­rage.

This trou­bled many com­peti­tors as con­di­tions could change very quickly.

A to­tal of 24 com­peti­tors par­tic­i­pated, in­clud­ing three vis­i­tors which was a good turnout con­sid­er­ing the heat and many reg­u­lars be­ing away.

In tar­get ri­fle com­peti­tors were com­pet­ing for a tro­phy spon­sored by Trevor Dif­fey which was won by John Gul­lock.

In F Class it was the sec­ond stage of a hand­i­cap tro­phy spon­sored by Ge­orge Snowl­ing which was won by Doug Ge­orge.

Scores from the day were as fol­lows:
