Six members competed from 700 yards last Saturday at the Eugowra Rifle Range. With many members shooting elsewhere for the Easter holiday weekend, those few in attendance were confronted with some very challenging conditions. The wind was continually changing in strength and direction and at times was much too fast for competitors to adjust. This was reflected in the scores which were abnormally low.
Results were as follows;
F Class (telescopic sights, with rest) total possible score 120: Alistair Kable 52.5, 55.2 – 107.7; Jim Maloy 44.0, 53.1 – 97.1; Alan Noble 46.0, 49.3 – 95.3; David Budd 45.0, 28.0 – 73.0
Full-Bore (open peep sights with sling off elbows) total possible score 100: David Jolly 45.1, 46.3 – 91.4; Jan Bray 46.2, 45.2 – 91.4
The club extends an invitation to all Full-Bore and Scoped shooters to come and try the clubs new electronic targets on ‘Sunnyside’ just south east of the Eugowra village. We compete at ranges starting at 300 yards and extending to 800 yards every Saturday commencing at 1.30pm. This weekend the final range of Round 1 will be 800 yards. We will return to 300 yards for the commencement of round 2 the following weekend.
