2016 Auckland Championship

Posted by Helen Morgan

Auckland Championship was held over a weekend of two weather conditions.

Day 1 had the treat of rain all day but luckily did not arrive until we were on the way home.  Conditions were light winds and high scores, with Gareth Morris, Irene Cameron and Mike Young going clean for the day.  After the individual shooting a teams match was held between Clevedon and Te Puke with Clevedon winning the Waihi Rooster.

Day 2 had strong south westerlies brewing all day causing big changes in competitors placings and scores. Mark Lane won the long range with a wrong target at 900 but managed the only score in the 70's at 1000 to win the longs. Through the wind came David Woods, beating out many top shootings to win his 1st TR Championship. Larry Meredith managed his wind picking and topped FTR for the win and Mike Young continued his form from the Saturday to win F Open.

Barbecue and refreshments completed both days with a great effort from the Clevedon club members made our first competition on E-Targets a success and ran smoothly.
