The Cairns Prize Meeting was held over 21st and 22nd June 2014 at the Cairns Rifle Range, Wangetti Beach. A good turn up of around 41 shooters (13 from Ravenshoe) enjoyed warm weather, if often- times a fickle wind prevailed. The first day was 300, 500 and 700 metres and Sunday’s matches comprised 700, 800 and 600 metres. There were some great scores recorded with Peter Burg, Kevin and Kate Chatfield achieving 2 possibles and Betta Gianasi, Mick Wood and Chris Allman with one each.
On Day 1 Yvonne Burg won 300m in FA and Peter Burg won 300m in FO. For 500m Kevin Chatfield won FA and Betta won FB. At 700m Mick Wood took out FA and Chris Allman FB. The Day 1 Aggregate was taken out by 1st Kevin Chatfield, 2nd Mick Wood, 3rd John Lorimer (Townsville) in FA. In FB Chris Allman scooped the pool with John Farmer (Townsville) 2nd and Arthur Simpson (Mareeba) 3rd. In F-Open Peter Smith, Dave Stewart (Herberton)and Peter Carter (Cairns) excelled.
On Day 2 at 700m Kate Chatfield came 1st in FA; Chris Allman in FB. At 800m Chris Allman took out FB. At 600m Jason Kuchel was 1st in TR1 and our adopted Mareeba shooter, Steve Durham, was 1st in TR2. Yvonne Burg was 1s in FA and Kevin Randolph in FB. The Daily Aggregates were: Jason Kuchel 3rd in TR1; Steve Durham 1st in TR2; Kevin Chatfield 3rd in FA; Chris Allman 1st, Kevin Randolph 2nd in FB and Peter Burg 3rd in F-Open.
