Congratulations to Ellie Mazey on setting a new personal best (PB) score of 87.1 yesterday.

With the AGM being held mid-session, no 20-shot scores were recorded.  96 was the score to beat in many grades: top honours in the higher grades goes to David Grain with 96.3, while Dianne Grain’s 96.2 was a point ahead of Mark Riley and Stephen Thessman in B Grade.  A flurry of 96s were shot in C Grade (very impressive!) with the highest score recorded by Cassie Truscott 96.5, followed by Inge Little 96.4 and Megan Brodie 96.4.  Top shot in D Grade was Josh Whitehead with 94.2 followed by Finn Ashby 92.2, Jaz Hamilton 90.2 and Daniel Johnson 90.1.

It was decided at the AGM to break up the club captain role to give ownership of various tasks to more club members.  Further information will be emailed to members later this week.  Have a look through the list and see if there’s something you think you’d like to be responsible for during this season.

Fees and membership forms will be sent through to TSNZ this week, enabling all members to compete in various competitions.  The first open champs on the calendar is being held on Friday and Saturday at Martinborough.

Thanks to everyone for their prompt responses for closed champs entries.  Almost all our current shooting members have opted in which is fantastic.  We hope to have targets available in the next couple of weeks, with the first deadline of two targets to be shot by Sunday 26 July.

Just a reminder to record all scores onto the scoresheet in the marking room and indicate P or C (practice or competition).  If someone has shot groups, please write “groups” so that we know a score isn’t missing.  All competition scores must now be recorded on the your grading spreadsheet.

  • Tuesday 16 June, deadline for membership fees and closed champs entries.
  • Friday 19 / Saturday 20 June, Wairarapa Open Champs, Martinborough.
