4th Short & Long Club Championship

4th Short & Long Club Championship

Sunday 26 February 2017
Cloudless skies again with the wind up to its usual tricks to keep eleven of us on our toes. Stuart and his wife came up from Auckland again and he bought his son’s .308 up to sight in over the 500/600 distance and he was on the paper straight away. He is coming back for the next shoot. Andrew used Phil’s rifle to have a go at 500 and 900 and is keen to buy his own rifle so he has been getting plenty of advice on what to buy etc. Julian turned up with his new 6.5 Creedmore rifle and used my bipod and sandbag and he has plenty of potential once he does some more load development. Derricks ammo had a hissy fit so he didn’t shoot 800/900 but his mate Ian had a good day. Paul and Jo and Cathy and Phil fought it out in the couples battle. Iain and I won the FO and FTR and set up and pulled down the targets. Thanks to the Tylers for getting in the boundary flags. For those that know Murray Graham, he passed away on Saturday.

3rd Short and Long Range Club Championship Shoot

3rd Short and Long Range Club Championship Shoot

5 Feb 2017                                                                                                                                  3rd Short and Long Range Club Championship Shoot

Another hot cloudless day which meant heaps of mirage and a fickle wind that started from the right, then towards us, then to the left and back to the right.

Bruce brought out a friend, Adrian who is out from the States on holiday so there was 7 of us plus a guy from Auckland who googled the range and turned up with a 7 mil Rem Mag. He shot 500/600 and was so pleased about how it went he is coming back on the 26th.  Trevor ran out of ammo so didn’t shoot  800/900.

Iain was in a class of his own again and won F class and yours truly won FTR.  Phil and Kathy had a ding dong battle and it ended with one point the difference.
