A very busy day at the club yesterday with 30 shooters.  Unfortunately there were a number of scores not recorded on the scoresheet in the marking room.  It is vital that every score is written down, whether a practice card or a competition card.  Please ensure, if you are marking, that you remember to record the score once the target has been check-marked.

B Grade and D Grade interassociation matches were held last Monday.  Full results will be available at the end of September.

In the Triangular B Grade, Juniors and Women’s matches held on Saturday at the Keene Range in Petone, our Wellington women’s team scored a 25-point win (5 points per shooter!), while the B Grade team had a close match, finishing 6 points behind Hutt Valley, and our junior team lost by 16 points.  Top Brooklyn shooters were Meredith Ackrill 197.12, Erin Little 193.8 and Amalamo Simi 193.5.
