Well done to all at the W.A. state championships !
Great hospitality and atmosphere as always !

As you have mentioned Stuart, there were many targets where I could not see any holes even with a 30 cal !
It’s a certain skill that’s needed to be able to compete in W.A.
Not at all easy when the mirage commenced at 7.30am even though it was 2deg !

See you at the nationals this month and in W.A. year !
