72 shooters attended the range again with a record turnout of new shooters. 18 “C” graders combined with 8 target only shooters, mixed with some new juniors and ladies meant that approximately half the field were newer shooters.
Richard Mould set the range and it was a baptism of fire. Even the more experienced shooters scores suffered with high gun for the day Phil Craig scrambling to a 76.
Two ranges, five stations with five targets on each. 1 single and two pairs didn’t leave much room for error. Having said that all targets were well presented and visible. Range setters take pride in deception and the targets on the day proved, by the score board at least to be very deceptive.
Another twist to the day was the mixing in of some oddly coloured targets. The theory being that if a different coloured target was presented there were some prizes up for grabs. Shooters could choose to refuse the target at which point it would be a no target, or take the challenge and go for the cash. We must be a greedy group as 50 packets of ammo were handed out for mixed targets.
