Results for Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August
Recently we were required to replace the range flags with much larger ones. As is usual when something has to be done the Scott family stepped up. A big thank you to Fay Scott for making the new flags!
The weekend saw the Blue Heeler Classic, our major 500m fly shoot for the year. Both days ran very smoothly, mainly due to the efficiency of our target crew of Wal Scott, John Buik, David Wade, Arthur Robinson and Ryan Hall (a junior from Batemans Bay). The other standout was Bruce Milne who saved our bacon when the caterer cancelled at the last minute.
The 300m event on Saturday was won by local F Class shooter Rob Halloran, LeeAnn VanMeurs and Roy Ewin tied on second with LeeAnn coming out on top after a count back. Along the way LeeAnn shot a perfect target of 60.5.
On Sunday, at 500m, in heavy gun, it was Paul Read from Mike Bell and LeeAnn VanMeurs. In light gun it was Anthony Hall from Grant Groves and Mike Bell. Best target and smallest group in light gun went to Peter VanMeurs.
Sunday belonged to Paul Read, first in heavy gun, smallest group and best target in heavy gun and overall two day champion. If that wasn’t enough, Paul’s best heavy gun group of 0.955”, when ratified, will be a new national record (the record is currently held by John Butts).
Sunday the 1st is rimfire field rifle from 10am followed by rimfire silhouette.
The next shotgun shoot will be on Saturday the 7th of September (yes, there is an error on the program).
