A number of club members scored particularly well last week (3 March).  Of note Meredith Ackrill 195.9, Evan Little 98.6, Mark Baines 98.5 and Erin Little 97.3.

Our new shooters are taking on board coaches’ comments and putting these into practice well.  This week the emphasis was on the two-stage trigger, shot release and follow through.  Top shots on the rest were Lauchie Grahame 88.1, Ryan Day 85.2, Maia Lapointe 84.1, Finn Ashby 82.1 and Cassie Truscott 80.0.

The first of the 2019 open championships is being held at the Colyton Range (Manawatu) on Saturday 6 April.  It is hoped that many club members will take part in the various open champs held throughout the season.  These provide a good level of graded individual competition, enable shooters to have a go at many different ranges, and offer the opportunity to get to meet other people participating in our sport.

A reminder that the WSRA AGM is being held this Friday at 7.30pm.  There are two vacant positions on the Executive, so if you are keen to be involved, please put your name forward at the AGM.

Our club AGM will be held at 7.30pm on Sunday 24 March followed by club competition shooting.  The membership fees will be set at the AGM – prompt payment in the next few weeks following the AGM would be appreciated.

Attached is the TSNZ membership form.  If you haven’t already done so, could you please fill this in and bring it to the club or email it to me.  Please do not email your form to TSNZ or pay the membership fee direct to TSNZ – Brooklyn club will organise a bulk payment for all members.

The club competition commences next week.  Please advise if you are not returning this year, so that the scoreboard can be as accurate as possible.

And finally, don’t forget to wipe your club rifle down with an oily rag before leaving each evening to ensure the rifle is kept in the best possible condition.
