Its been a busy period with many major shooting events since our post on the FT/R team heading off to South Australia for the National Teams matches. The ACT has been well represented at many of these events and we should acknowledge the success our members have enjoyed.
All the best to the ACT – FT/R Team heading off to South Australia later this week to compete in the F Class National Interstate Teams Matches. In the final practice and rehearsal on Saturday, Steve (captain), Anthony (coach) Daniel, Shane, Tony, Dennis and Frank are all happy with their preparation for the matches.
