Saturdays shoot.

Hi guys the concrete is going down, firing line tomorrow. But it will be very green still. It may be ok to walk on BUT traffic will be heavy if we shoot and I for one do not want to risk it being damaged.

Let’s let it cure properly.

So this Saturday’s Classic Calibre shoot, the 28th October is CANCELLED.

Next shoot is on November the 11th.

AGM this Saturday

Hi guys please be advised the AGM is this Saturday the 21st of October.

It will start at 4pm sharp. Note the AGM is for the election of office bearers and setting of club fees. Any other business must have been sent to the secretary as an agenda item.

Also please note site works have started at the club. I am quite doubtful that a shoot will be held Saturday. Please keep an eye out here and via email from Richard.

Cheers guys

Nationals Lever Action Wrap up 2017

Hi guys, well what a Nationals it was this year!

12 of us and their partners travelled to Adelaide to shoot the 2017 Lever Action Nationals. Pete and Bob flew the rest of us drove.

Kim and Sue have continued to Tasmania to shoot the Cowboy Silhouette Nationals. Good luck!

Para is a nice range, multi use  by many clubs. It is set deep in a valley in the Adelaide hills. Very pleasant.

Practice went well on Friday. The target system they use is, well not like ours, due to the multi use of the range and my practice target was not even visible prone at 50m.

Rimfire Saturday, day one. Despite the program saying practice from 10am till 11:30am it was run in details of 20 mins each, one crack at it. Some of us rocked up a little past 10 to have Kim rushing out telling us to get a move on, thanks Kim!

100m rapid fire is always fun to start with. But most shot it well.

As the day progressed the leaders were becoming apparent. I had a good start with a 48/50 100m rapid and this gap helped me all day.

So at the end of the day a new National Rimfire Champion was crowned.

1st David Sobik 471.03/500

2nd Dave McCarthy 461.09/500

3rd Steve Hurley 455.07/500

I was rather happy to win the National Rimfire!

Day 2 was Centre fire.

Another 100m rapid fire event to start with.

From the start Joel was shooting very well. Did hardly put down a bad target!

So winning his first National Centre Fire Title was Joel Evans! Great work mate!

1st Joel Evens 454.11/500

2nd Steve Hurley 448.01/500

3rd David Sobik 444.06/500

With these two days done the 2 Gun National Champion could now be worked out.

So the National 2 Gun Champion is….David Sobik with a score of 915.09! I was over the moon with this.

Silver place was Joel Evans on 905.17

Bronze was Steve Hurley 903.08

Classic was on Monday. I am sorry I do not have the scores to give, however it went like this.

National Classic Calibre Champion is Joel Evans!

Now the 3 gun can be worked out.

I give you the 2017 National 3 Gun Champion…..Joel Evans!!!

Silver was David Sobik

The State Team Shoot was won by WA!! The team was made up of 100% Albany Shooters. Not bad! Mick, Joel, Steve and David.

Now there were 12 of us at this shoot and plenty of medals were also won. Forgive my memory here.

Peter Tulloch was up and down collecting medals.

Bill Wellington was as well.

Multi Ladies National Champion Sue Knapp was edged out this year but collected a swag of medals and shot some very nice 100m targets.

Rob Gill got up for a medal.

And shooting at her first National Title was Suzanne Peacock collecting not one but two silver medals! Fantastic!!

If I have missed anyone please let me know.

Anyway a quick over view. Albany can be proud of our members who conducted themselves well at this shoot.

Next year it at our club so lets get ready and do it again!
