A number of ACT shooters have been competing in the ACT Victorian Championships held in Bendigo that finished Sunday 14 May 2019.
In conditions that were described at times as ‘Challenging’, members enjoyed the competition and we suggest you ask them about the social events including ‘Sandpit Play’ and Tassie Tiger hunt which have supporting photos?
