GOSFORD DISTRICT RIFLE CLUB
OPEN PRIZE MEETING 2016
Another successful Prize Meeting. Initially the un-seasonal wind played havoc with the scores of some of the 77 competitors but as the day progressed the average scores began to climb. All three matches were fired from 500m under cover on our Astro-Turf mound. Once again the HEXTA target system proved it’s worth, providing accurate and faultless results. Ted Boreham did a great job on Stats, monitoring all the scores and cards. Thanks also to John Slack who entered all the scores on the NRAA Results database.
We had a great team working to keep the things running efficiently, in the Canteen it was Jill, Kim, Karen, Stuart, Kara & her daughters. On the mound: Mark, Dale & Darren. On Stats: Ted. Entries: Gail & Linda, Ticket Sales: Stuart & Linda. Many other members baked and prepared all the excellent cakes and slices. In the lead-up, Sarah did a lot of work hunting up sponsors and picking up prizes and banners.
As all clubs are aware, these events could not be run without the tireless work of members who helped in preparing the range, the setting-up on Saturday and pack-up on Sunday.
A big thanks to all the competitors who supported our OPM, many of whom travelled long distances to be there. Thanks also to our sponsors and the many members who made generous donations of cash and prizes which were so important to the success of the event.
