Club Shooting

It was a tough competition amongst the D Graders at the club last night, with all five present shooting in the 90s. Ewan Mirza's 94.3 came out on top ahead of Kate Yu's 93.3 and Analin Rudd's 93.1. Jaz Hamilton continued his on-form shooting, scoring 99.2 to lead C Grade ahead of Jack Day's 95.3. 96.2 was the score of the night for our B Graders, with four members (Clive Brodie, Inge Little, Stephen Thessman, and Cassie Truscott) achieving this score to share top honours for the grade. Top spot in the higher grades was also hotly contested. Evan Little's 100.7 came in one inner ahead of Megan Brodie's 100.6 - great shooting from both! Megan's fine form continued with her 197.13 the highest 20-shot of the night, followed by Meredith Ackrill's 196.9.
