North Arm Rifle Club

Club Competition – 19/3/22 600 yards

As usual North Arm showed its true form with tricky wind conditions and mirage changing quickly.

Numbers were down a little today, with only 19 shooters for the afternoon. Dave B, (FO) stole the show for the afternoon, with an impressive 60.6 in the first stage and 66.8 in the second for a 124.14, for his first “Rooster” badge for the year. He shoots in the Champion of Champions next week at Belmont, so this is great form to be taking into that and then off to Bendigo for the National F Class Teams Matches.

Div 3 (F Std) saw the winner with a shakey start to the day with Des V shooting a 53.3, though he mastered the second stage with a 65.7, to take out the afternoon with a 118.10 from Peter B on 116.5 and Corrie on a 115.8.

Div 5 (FTR) was missing some of the pack this week, with only 5 shooters for the afternoon. Everyone had a bit of trouble mastering the wind conditions and the top two shooters ended up on the same score 111.3 with Dave H winning on countback from Gerard H.

Div 6(SH) only had two competitors this week, with Richard scoring a 98.4 and Rob G 101.10. Looks like he’s getting the rifle sorted for the next big Sporter Hunter shoot at Belmont. 🙂

TR had 3 shooters over the two divisions with Scott R scoring a 102.10 and Shane J a 96.4 for the afternoon.

We have lots going on over the next couple of weeks for our shooters, with Dave B and Andrew B going to Bendigo to compete in the National F Class teams matches 4 and 5 April and then the VRA Queens matches.

Next weekend we have David B (FO), Des V (FStd) and Michelle F (TR) competing in the Champion of Champions competition at Belmont. Though teams are yet to be named for the City v’s Country match being held Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning, a number of shooters have nominated. Scott R in TR, Dave B, Des V and Corrie H in FClass.

Good luck to all over the coming weeks.

With so many shooters away next week, the .22 shoot for Satruday morning has been cancelled.
