Maybe time to catchup with our three club members Steve Negus, Shaun Wingrove and Chris Maher competing at Bisley, England in the 149th Imperial Meeting.
A blog set up on the NRAA website has a link to the results and shows photos of the team enjoying warmer conditions than the minus temperatures presently in Canberra.
Appears Steve is leading the Aussie pack at present with Chris and Shaun doing well in the opening shot teams match. Still a way to go so keep up the good work, good luck.
Congratulations to all the winners who will receive their trophies at the Annual Presentation function in September. Further information at Summary of Results or the 2017-18 Championship results under the Club Results tab.
Thanks to all our doners for their support with medals and trophies for the grades.
It was like it had been staged, two ACT members flew out from Canberra aboard Qatar Airlines bound for Bisley, England to compete in the 149th Imperial Meeting. It happened while other members were setting up the range for the first range of the new championship 18/19 calendar. Both Chris Maher and Shaun Wingrove, members of the Australian Team have arrived in England where we hear it is much warmer.
Our third representative, Steve Negus, a regular at this event left Sunday to join the Australian team for this prestigious competition. Next year will be a BIG ONE being the 150th Celebration of the championship. To follow the Event and for Results.
Good Luck to Shaun, Chris, Steve and the Australian Team
How about Field Class or Long Range Rimfire, both sanctioned events from the standard shooting rules, (SSR – chapter 17) of our parent body the National Rifle Association of Australia (NRAA).
A member of the committee (Stewie) has since February been trialling the field class discipline and those who have tried found it enjoyable and a challenge.
