FUN Day

Report of the FUN Day on 29th June.

We had a good day wind wise with about 6 degrees right on at 600yards.
An excellent turnout of 29 visitors including 11 that were under 20yo.

We used all 3 targets from 10.30am onwards until 4.30pm with a short break for a bbq lunch.
We soon realised time would run short if we didnt use bipods and rests, altho a few tried the sling both times. Malcolm Hill and Alan Talbot from pirie had brought scoped 223's RH and LH with top scopes and the youngsters really shone out with a 15yo boy being top score and equalled by a 18yo girl with 89/96 in fclass.

Everyone had fun, and without the help of surrounding clubs yunta3, jamestown2 pirie 2 pt. augusta2, and advice from sooty, it would not have been nearly as successful.

Reserve soldier wins Gold Medal at Commonwealth Games

23 March 2006

Four years of training have paid off for Reserve soldier Bruce Scott at the Melbourne 2006 Commonwealth Games. Brigadier Scott, who is the Commander of the 11th Brigade in Townsville when on military duty, won the gold medal for the Full Bore Rifle Individual competition in a white-knuckle finish.

Brigadier Scott was in second place prior to the final shoot at 1000 yards, but managed to aim true and beat Englishman Parag Patel by one point (Scott: 403.57 points, Patel: 402.57 points). Besides being awarded the Gold Medal, Brigadier Scott was carried in the Queens Chair after the medal ceremony by his fellow shooters, a tradition that dates back to 1860 when champion shots would be carried by sedan chair from the firing mound and taken to Queen Victoria to receive their prize.

Brigadier Scott's win follows his success at the Open Full Bore Rifle Pairs competition, in which he won the silver medal with his partner James Corbett. Mr Corbett also won the bronze medal in the individual competition, scoring 401.57 points.

The Full-Bore Rifle Individual competition was conducted at the Wellsford Rifle Range in Bendigo, northwest of Melbourne.
