The Castlemaine Rifle Club was finally back in competition on Saturday. The club held its ‘Invitational Prize Meeting’. The first for two years.
A good number of shooters from around Victoria competed for some excellent badges and trophies. The first two rounds were shot over 500 yards, and the third round over 600 yards. Each range consisted of 10 scoring shots for a total of 30 scoring shots.
Medals and trophies were awarded to placegetters in ‘Target Rifle’, ‘F Class’ (two grades) and ‘F Open’. Conditions were pretty good with shooting finishing just as the rain came. See the Mail for the full story.
