Ravenshoe Shooters Shoot Tasmanian Queens 2014

Following their shoot in the winning North Queensland Team’s shoot, Murray & Liz Wilson shot the lead-up to the Tasmanian Queens (The Davis Series) over 6th and 7th March 2014. Murray took out 1st place at 300 yards with 60.04 over Liz with 59.07. Liz also came 3rdon Day 2 at 700 yards. The whole two days covered 300, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900 yards. Liz Wilson took out 3rd aggregate badge with Murray coming 8th.

The Queens shoot followed over 8th, 9th and 10th March. Campbell Town Range in Tasmania is renowned for very windy conditions, but the locals said that conditions were not so bad this year. If 13 minutes of wind is benign we’d hate to think what bad conditions were like! Day 1 comprised double 500 and double 600 yards. Day 2 was over double 700 and double 800 yards. A 7.30am start on Day 3 was over 900 and 1000 yards. Murray took out 2nd Daily Aggregate in the Second Stage. There were no range medals awarded. Murray also took out 3rd Queens Aggregate and 3rd overall Grand Aggregate (for the Davis Series and the Queens). Certainly a good result for our Highlanders.
