Six Ravenshoe shooters attended the Atherton Prize Shoot 5th – 6th September 2015. There were 30 shooters on Saturday (TR 12, FS 13 & FO 5) and 24 on Sunday. F/TR was not included.
Ravenshoe was well represented in the scores. Conditions were quite warm with changeable south-easterly winds. On DAY 1 Jason Kuchel placed 1st at 1000 yards x 15 shot match and came 3rd in the Day 1 Aggregate in Target Rifle A. Kevin Chatfield came 3rd at 900 yards x 15 shots and 2nd at the 1000 yards x 15 shot matches. He came 1st in the Day 1 Aggregate in FSA. Kate Chatfield came 3rd at 1000 yards x 15 shot match and 2nd in the Day 1 Aggregate in FSA. Mick Wood was 1st at 1000 yards x 15 shot match and 3rd in the Day 1 Aggregate in FSA.
Not everyone who shot Day 1 turned up for Day 2. The two days were classified as two separate matches, so there was a new draw on the Sunday. As it was Father’s Day, Kate took Kevin & Kelly to the beach to celebrate the day, so they did not contest Day 2. That left the Wilsons & Mick to see if they could cut the mustard. As it turned out, Liz managed a 3rd at the 700 y in FSA , Mick had a 3rd at 500 in FSA and Murray got a 2nd at 300 and 500 & a 3rd in the Day 2 Aggregate in FSA.
GO RAVENSHOE!!…… Let’s take it all out for our OPM!!!
