Thanks to everyone who made the shoot possible. It was a great weekend.
Congratulations to all those winners, very tricky conditions on both days.
Thanks for the Wagga club for hosting such a good event, so many helpers that made it a great day. We had plenty of great food from the BBQ which was running all weekend, the RO's and target crew did such a great job as well as those helping out in the kitchen. The scorers did an excellent job so and had the scores posted very quickly which got us all away early on Sunday. It was my first time to Wagga but I look forward to comming back to shoot again soon.
All the Fly shooters are such a good bunch it makes it enjoyable to be part of the event and would not of wished to be anywhere else.
It was great weekend indeed & well said David.
There were some really fantastic scores posted with 12 shooters scoring over 250..... 5 of these topped the 260 mark in the centre fire & 3 shooters in the Sunday rimfire scored +250 with Mark Anstee cleaning up by scoring +260......fantastic!
Got to hand it too Vince (I'm in meat mate!) Vaina who blasted his big win mag to an unbeatable 268 with 6. He then backed it up by posting a +250 on the Sunday. The Italian Stallion is in fine form for sure!
Well done to the club for the organising & also for the improvements to their infrastructure which will be fantastic when completed.
