Local members travelled to Griffith SSAA range on 26th October to compete in the first round of the 2014 selection shoots for 5 Stand. Two ranges presented challenging targets for all competitors set atop of the hill in amongst the pine trees and rocks.
Local Griffith member Greg Allen demonstrated some excellent shooting over the weekend, with a score of 88/100 winning him the High Gun Prize.
Local prize winners:
AA Grade: 3rd Darren Macartney (Hay) 83
A Grade: 1st Peter Jacka (Hay) 79,
B Grade: 1st Romain Devaud (Hay) 64,
Ladies: Jan Jacka (Hay) 68, Casey Jacka (Hay) 67
It was decided at the SSAA NSW State and National AGM to adopt the new percentage scoring system so that all competitors receive a percentage score of the High Gun total regardless of the number of targets shot. To be eligible for 2014 NSW Team Selection, you must attend three Selection Shoots and the NSW State Titles.
