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.
