Ravenshoe shooters Murray and Liz Wilson left home after the C&IDRA Prize Meeting in Cairns to shoot the Queens in Brisbane. It was well attended with 105 target rifle, 28 F Standard, 21 F Open and 6 F/TR shooters attending from Australia and New Zealand in the Duncan lead-up and 148 target rifle, 42 F Standard, 37 F Open and 8 F/TR shooters in the Queens.
Liz scooped the pool in FS B taking out the aggregate in the Duncan, the Queens and the Grand Aggregate. She also took out the Day 2 Short Range Aggregate, the Day 3 Long Range Aggregate and the 900 yard Aggregate. The last day’s shoot at 1000 yards proved extremely difficult, with rain and very low visibility taking its toll on many shooters, with a number retiring.
The Belmont range is a credit to all involved, with the range a picture of perfection and the presentation went very smoothly.
