NSDRA 2015 OPM (7th-8th Nov)

Ten of our members attended the North Shore District Rifle Association  2-Day Open Prize Meeting at Hornsby.

 

Despite very bad weather leading up to the event, it still attracted a large field of competitors. Due to the soggy conditions at some of the scheduled ranges, all matches had to be relocated to the drier 600 and 700 metre mounds. Gosford was represented in all categories: Target Rifle, F Standard, F Open and FTR and members won medals in each category. Although the rain held off with only a few mild spits during the competition, the fluctuating wind was anything but helpful, causing grief for shooters right across the range which was reflected with some surprisingly low scores. However, it was a very well run Prize Meeting with many members of Hornsby Clubs foregoing shooting and putting in a lot of hard work to keep things running smoothly.
