Shaun – winner Match Rifle

Firstly to congratulate Shaun Wingrove on winning the 2019 NSW Match Rifle Championships at Ungarie on the 4/5 May. The event provided an opportunity for many to tune their skills as part of the Australian Team which will compete in the match rifle event at Bisley (England) in July 2019.

It was a big day on Saturday 18 May for Canberra and Bungendore Clubs taking part in the Shooting AustraliaCome and Try‘ day.  Thankyou to everyone for your help and the friendly atmosphere created for the many visitors. Whether it was coaching, cooking, cleaning up around the club house or simply talking to our visitors, it was much appreciated and goes to show what a vibrant association we have for future members to enjoy.
