Werribee Prize Meeting 2018

DRA No 11 or better known as Werribee Prize Meeting 2018

First Year Shooter Brian Houlihan and Marty Kelly went down Werribee to shoot the No 11 District Prize shoot.  What a start to 2018 Marty Kelly won F Class Target Rifle and Brian Houlihan took out 3rd  Place in F Standard B grade.  The shoot was over 500 yards with Three stages planned, the final stage was cancelled however due to the forecast of bad weather which could clearly be seen coming.

Marty shot 58.7, 60.6 and an aggregate of 118.13 he won the first and second stages as well as the aggregate.  A great effort Marty, one that sets you up for a great 2018, there are rumors that the state team selectors have their eye on Marty for the 2018 State F class target Rifle team.  This certainly takes his precision shooting to a significantly higher level. It was Brian’s first shoot at an OPM and a third place that stood out, as it was great result for a new shooter, his scores were: F Class Standard B grade 55.1, 58.2 (third place)  and an aggregate of 113.3 (third place).

A quick scan down the scores and we see a number of possibles 60.6, 60.7, 90.7 ect.  At Open Prize shoot you are on your own, no coach and definitely no external assistance.  It is so good to see our local mountain marksmen so successful.  This comes at the price of a lot of practice and a willingness to listen to other experienced shooters.  a feature of the ECDRA is the fact that time is taken to share skills, knowledge and experience so the new or old you have the best chance of enjoying the sport of precision shooting. 

It is the executive committee’s intention to sustain the features of our club and as always strive for the perfect score especially on the difficult ranges like Wellsford at Bendigo.  Come along or use the contacts on the web site new shooters are most welcome.
