Success in South Australia

IMG_1580Dust and wind, elements for a tough series and one that confronted competitors in the SARA Queens series held at Lower Light, South Australia at the end of April.

IMG_1582Congratulations to Canberra members Graham Aitchison and Cedric May on their success. Graham won the Hunt lead-up series, 3rd badge in the Queens and 3rd for the Grand Championship. Along with range and a daily aggregate Graham also won the Veterans trophy. Cedric won the silver medal in Stage 1 of the Queens adding to gold for both the 500m and 600m ranges. (Full Results).

Well done to both members and great to see ACT well represented at these shoots.

The South Africa ‘booty’

ImageAs earlier posted, club member Steve Negus was very successful at the South African Bisley Union championships held in Bloemfontein.
3 golds, a silver and two bronze…one of which is a special medal awarded to the top 10 in the South African Championship over the week.
Also included are two Highest Possible Score (HPS) crosses and the badge for 9th in the State President final, the latter is equivalent to our Queens Prize.

Well Done Steve and to a repeat in 2017 as a wind coach for the Australian Team captained by Darren Enslin. Steve will captain the NRAA Team to Bisley, England in July this year.
