January Shoot Compak


With an ominous weather forecast 30 shooters arrived at the Cooma Field and Games shooting grounds on Saturday to compete in the first Compak event of 2016. Fortunately for those brave enough to take the challenge, the showers cleared at 9.30 ready for the first squads to take to the range. This break in the weather lasted all day seeing out all of the competition and most of the packing up before the skies opened up again and torrential rain fell that had to be seen to be believed.

Two ranges were on offer with a good variety of targets, the general consensus being that “B range” was a little more challenging than “A range”. The Compak format seems to be a good program for new shooters as it offers a more consistent range of targets. This allows them to gain valuable practice and experience. All of the newer shooters on the day thoroughly enjoying themselves with much improved performances.

Bill Warriner once again led the way and took out high gun which included a perfect 25 round.
