Success in New Zealand

Congratulations to Donna Negus from the Bungendore Club on her 9th badge in the 2018 National Championships in New Zealand. Donna also winning 9th badge in the final and as Top Lady shooter picked up some impressive silverware.

Donna a member of the Australian team was one of a number of Australian and international vistor’s taking the opportunity to compete in this year championship. With the 2019 Long Range World Championship in New Zealand the championship provided an opportunity to do some reconnaissance and checkout what to expect next year. 

In true style Trentham lived up to the ‘Windy Wellington’ title and it was the wind and not the rain that caused many a heartache and even stopped the shoot at one stage ……
