Congratulations to our F-Open and F/TR teams who competed in the World F Class Championships in Ottowa, Canada this month.  The Australian F-Open Team took out the overall lead in the teams event. Cairns shooter Stephen Lazarus was the mastermind coach behind this amazing victory and the team included Cairns shooters Peter Carter and Marty Lobert and former Cairns resident Rod Davies.  Rod also won the individual F-Open shoot taking the Gold Medal, while Peter came 8th with a Bronze Medal. 
Our very own Ravenshoe shooters, Betta Gianasi and Chris Allman shot in the F/TR team.  Betta came a very creditable 32nd and Chris 67th out of over 200 shooters in the individual shoot.  Chris coached our second Australian F/TR team to 8th place.  Our first F/TR team took out second place.  Congratulations to all coaches, shooters and back-up crew on a magnificent effort.

Next weekend’s shoot at Ravenshoe will be at 300yards.
