F Class Teams Competition, Tasmania 3 – 5 March 2014

The Australian F Class Teams Competition, comprising 9 teams Australia wide, took place in Campbell Town, Tasmania, over three days in March 2014 prior to the Tasmanian Queens Shoot.
It was tightly contested with Victoria leading after Day 1 over North Queensland by 9.02. On Day 2 the 10 shot match at 1000 yards completed the first match of the competition. After some superb shooting by the North Queensland Team, this left Victoria ahead of North Queensland by 1.02 to win the first match. The second shoot at this range was a 15 shot match at 1000 yards and the combination of the two 1000 yard ranges comprised the second match. This was won by North Queensland. The grand aggregate of the two days was won by North Queensland (1433.58 over Victoria’s 1429.51), which gave North Queensland the National F Class Standard Teams Championship, Tasmania 2014.
The North Queensland Team comprised:
