Congratulations to Graham and Wynter Tickle on setting new PBs again this week of 89.3 and 90.0 respectively.

There were some fantastic scores shot last night, particularly D Graders Jaz Hamilton 98.5 and Jack Day 95.3.  Clive Brodie scored best in C Grade with 96.4, and Stephen Thessman’s 99.5 led B Grade.  In the higher grades, David Grain top-scored with 98.6.  And only two inners separated the top three in the 20‑shot competition (Becky Baines, Meredith Ackrill and Stephen Thessman).

The Interassociation A Grade and C Grade matches were held on Monday.  Erin Little top-scored for the A Grade team with 195.7 and Clive Brodie shot best in the C Grade team with 190.6.  Both teams achieved similar results to last year.  And the Women’s interassociation match was held last night.  Unfortunately this team score was lower than previous years; however top shot was Becky Baines closely followed by Meredith Ackrill and the emergency, Sascha Thomson from Melrose club.  Full results will be published in October.

Round 2 results of the Triple S (secondary schools) competition are now available.  At the half-way point, in C Grade Cassie Truscott is 2nd and Megan Brodie 4th.  The deadline for Round 3 targets is Sunday 23 August.

Brooklyn have byes in all grades in the next interclub round being held on Wednesday 19 August.

The Wright Cup and Osmond Shield matches will be shot on Saturday 29 August, with the first squad commencing at 7.30pm.  This is probably the most interesting and hotly contested club competition on the calendar.  The Wright Cup match comprises teams of six shooters (all C and D Graders) with the best five scores counting, and the Osmond Shield match comprises teams of eight shooters (only four of whom can be A Grade or Master Grade) with all scores counting.  Please let me know by Thursday 20 August if you are NOT available for this match – teams will be selected on Friday 21 August.
