Geoff James Awarded Life Membership

Geoff James was awarded life Membership of the East Central District Rifle Association Inc at its annual dinner held at the Delatite Hotel in Mansfield on Saturday night.   Geoff has been an active member of the ECDRA for more years than most care to remember and during these years he served a Captain for at least 15 of these years.

 Geoff is a very experienced wind coach and many of the recent wins by the ECDRA team are as a direct result the application of his considerable skills in this area of team shooting.   Very recently Geoff was the prime mover in the acquisition of a second electronic target system for the ECDRA home range at Violet Town.  It was not a surprise then to learn that at the shoot earlier Geoff top scored for F class Standard with  58.02 55.03 and a total score of 113.05.  The Life Membership of the ECDRA is recognized by a unique gold badge and it was very clear that Geoff will wear this with a sense of considerable pride, a just reward for outstanding service to the ECDRA and to precision rifle shooting in general.
