Champions at the Ravenshoe/Mt Garnet Annual Prize shoot

On 5th October, the first day of the Ravenshoe/Mt Garnet Rifle Club shoot, Marty Lobert (a member of the Australian F-Open team who won the F-Class World Championships at Raton, New Mexico, USA, in August 2013), along with five other members of the Australian team were present to pay homage to Peter Smith, who was very much instrumental in the design and manufacture of the coaching/plotting system used by wind coaches David Stewart and David McNamara.  Marty presented Peter with an Australian team T-shirt signed by all members of the Australian team, an Australian team cap and a winning team gold medal presented by the American organizing committee.  Peter was also presented with a blown-up group photo of the whole Australian team.  The striking yellow colours of the team shirts really stood out and made a colourful picture with the gold medals gleaming in the sunlight.  It was a very touching ceremony expressing the team’s gratitude to their mentor.  Peter Smith was very honoured by the gesture.  Thanks Peter for an extraordinary contribution.
On Sunday 6th October, Cnr Shaaron Linwood took the opportunity to congratulate Marty Lobert, Shane Green, Steve Lazarus and Peter Smith on their great success in America.
