Bisley Happenings

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.

Bisley Bound

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
