A tailor made day for the club champions of Canberra and Bungendore to contest the honor of being the Association Champion of Champions. Challenging wind conditions, shooting from 3, 6, 7 and 800m set the scene for a great competition. Going back to 800m that coincided with the start of the afternoon shoot there was a great roll out of some 60 members to watch the final.
Congratulations to: David Daniel (Bungendore) in Target Rifle, Dave Phipps (Canberra) in F Standard, Russell LeMaitre (Canberra) in F Open and Anthony Pedersen (Canberra) in FTR. Well done to everyone and best of luck for the 2018/19 year. See full results.
