Club Championship round September 7

The warmer weather and better light conditions is bringing many small bore shooters out of winter hibernation with a full house turning out for last week’s club round.

This week’s good return to form by the Russell brothers was the highlight of the night. Shane Russell’s score of 189/200 was his best of the season, whilst brother John’s score of 188/200 now places him within six points of Chris Barnard for third place in the championship.

New junior shooter, Connor Flannigan scored a personal best of 164. Meanwhile, the scoped competitors had their first shoot on the new bench rest targets and definitely found them to be a little more challenging.

Full scores for this week’s round are:

  • Tony Moon 194
  • Shane Russell 189
  • John Russell 188
  • Chris Barnard 186
  • Brian Mavin 184
  • Barry White 181

  • Sharron Ashby 175
  • Rhonda Cassar 172
