Marlborough Spring Meeting 2012

Final scores and report on the Marlborough Spring meeting at the Kaituna Blenheim Rifle Range.

Day one dawned cool and fine. The rain that was forecast did not eventuate, however the very strong north westerly did show up with a vengeance.  Day one saw the first four ranges of a ten range grand agg.

The wind at 800yds was nearly unreadable constantly on the move from 4 to 9 mins right.

Malvern were winners on the day by four centrals over Petone
