NSWRA OFFICE CLOSED FRIDAY 25th JULY
JIM BAILEY WINS ST GEORGE FINAL IN GB
Another great weekend was enjoyed by competitors taking part in the annual City V Country competitions.
As in the past the weekend commenced with the NSW Champions matches on Saturday morning. With the range looking fantastic after some solid working bees by a small but enthusiastic group of MDRA members the proceedings commenced with a cool but gentle breeze & all looked really for a great event.
However Murphy’s Law decided otherwise with the normally reliable electronic targets deciding to throw a number of “hissy fits” despite the efforts of the Sydney crew who worked tirelessly on the problem.
Despite the issues the competition did take place and no one can deny the winners the accolades as all were cl0ear winners in the various competitions.
Target Rifle Champion Tony Moon
U25 Champion Jessica Bale
U18 Champion Mitch Bailey
F Class Standard Jason Conolly
F Class Open Ben Ferara
In the afternoon the team’s competition took place. As a result of the previous electronic target issues it was decided not to risk further delays on the Sunday & revert to manual targets. In hindsight this was the wrong decision as the target frames had not been used in this manner for two years so markers really faced huge problems getting shots marked quickly. Needless to say once the last shot had been fired all breathed a sigh of relief that the event was over. A big thumbs up to all that helped once again make the event a success.
Again Country were victorious in the Target Rifle seniors & clear winners over City but it could have gone either way with the last 15 shot match at 800. City regained some pride in the U25 event & in F standard again Country took home the spoils.
This year we again tried F Open and an enthusiastic competition took place. Unfortunately City were only able to field one squad but next year given the keen interest in this discipline we hope to have the facilities in place to ensure the F Open has a proper chance to showcase the event.
Country Clock up another Win
