2015 Canterbury Spring Meeting

Posted by Helen Morgan

The weather was rather miserable this morning, good to see a good turnout anyway and the rain did stop for a while and nobody got soaked.  But we did have to reduce to just one round of 15-shots at 900 yards.  Prizegiving was then held at a warm Coalgate Tavern.  Ken did well to maintain his overnight lead, it was a great turnout from the Invercargill members!

19 Target shooters took part on Saturday, unfortunately not all returned today and we didn't quite make the 15 shooters to qualify for a grading meeting.  But we all had a great time!  Malvern did well to get the range in order, a lot of work was required for us all to have access to all the ranges after extensive damage by the logging trucks.  As well as the obvious results, other trophies:

Team shorts, longs and aggregate were won by Ashburton.

Veterans trophy John Miller

Ladies Trophy Kathryn Lange 

Special mention to new shooter Megan Snowden, cleaning up in C grade, with dad's help (she can start winding her sights herself from now on!)
