Ravenshoe/Mt Garnet shooters showed a great performance at the Mossman Open Prize Meeting held at the Mossman Rifle Range on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 July 2014. A good turn up of 37 shooters (11 from Ravenshoe) on the first day and 33 on the second day enjoyed sunny and hot weather. The heavy mirage was the biggest challenge for the shooters especially in the mid-morning and afternoon ranges. The first day was 400m, 600m and 500m after a delightful lunch. On Sunday it was 500m and then 600m to end the competition. Since the first range, the Ravenshoe shooters showed some excellent scores with Peter Burg and Kath Chatfield achieving a possible each at the 400m. Peter Burg kept up is good performance achieving a possible on both Sunday's ranges, while Betta Gianasi achieved a possible at the 500m range.

On day 1: the 400m range was a clean swipe for Ravenshoe F class shooters with Peter Burg winning F Open, Kath Chatfield and Liz Wilson winning FSA and FSB respectively. Mick Wood took out both the 600m and 500m in FSA, while Paul Padgett took out the 600m in FSB. Day 1 aggregate was taken in FSA by Mick Wood with Shane Green (Cairns) 2nd and Kath Chatfield 3rd. Paul Padgett excelled in FSB with Betta Gianasi 2nd and Brian Corkill (Cairns) 3rd. In F Open Peter Carter (Cairns) took it from Marty Lobert (Cairns) and Peter Smith (Herberton) 3rd.

On day 2: Betta Gianasi took out the 500m in FSB while the 600m was a clean swipe once again for Ravenshoe F class shooters with Peter Burg, Mick Wood and Liz Wilson winning F Open, FSA and FSB respectively. Daily aggregate in FSB was a convincing all Ravenshoe ladies win with Betta Gianasi 1st, Liz Wilson 2nd and Yvonne Burg 3rd. In F Open Peter Burg missed 1st place for only 3 centres to Marty Lobert, with David Stewart (Herberton) 3rd.

Grand Aggregate winners showed the great performance of our shooters with Mick Wood and Betta Gianasi 1st in FSA and FSB respectively. Liz Wilson 2nd in FSB, Kath Chatfield and Garry Venables 3rd in FSA and F Open respectively.

Thanks to the Mossman shooters and families for putting up such an enjoyable prize shoot with good facility and great food. We will see you all next year.
