NSW COUNTRY V CITY Weekend
|Jim Jeffrey Fullbore Champion||Evan Jones U25 Champion||Chris Schwebel U18 Champion||Dennis Smith F Class Champion|
Jim Jeffrey has won the 2012 event after a very closley fought competition. Monica Darke from Northern Rivers set a hot pace with three consectutive possibles however Jim remained cool and composed as always to snatch victory on the final range from Evan Jones with Monica taking third spot.
Evan however took out the Under 25 competition and Chris Schwebel was a clear winner in the under 18 competition
In F Class Scoped rifle Denis Smith was a clear winner from John Brook who narrowly edged out third placed Leigh Milton.
Conditions for all competitors was very good with a clear sky and bright targets however the wind was allways ready to catch those who became too complacent with the conditions.
The Riverina team again showed dominance by winning the F Class competition despite losing a couple of regulars who have travelled to Bisley to compete in Match Rifle Events. Kyle Dunstall shot very well in his first major competiton and was an able replacement for his more experienced teammates. The future looks bright for this young teenager who is set to emulate the feats of his famous grandfather.
Country Team Out Guns City Team Once Again
|Country Senior Team is all smiles after winning victory by 14 points|
In glorious weather however with a chiily breeze blowing the annual City v Country matches took place at Malbar. All disiplines were tested as the wind increased in strength and changed direction at regular intervals however in the end all agreed it is a wonderful competition and generally goes right down to the line before clear winners emerge.
In senior fullbore Country again reigned supreme while City were the victors in the Under 25 competition. Meanwhile at the Maroubra end of the range the F class fraternity battled it out on manual targets with Country again recording victory.
