Shooters on target
MEMBERS of the Coffs Harbour Rifle Club have achieved outstanding results at the prestigious Queens shoot held at the ANZAC Rifle Range in Sydney.
Glenn Kitchner took out both A grade centrefire and rimfire at the championship in a strong field.
There was also hot competition in B grade where Lindsay McConachy won gold in centrefire and Andrew Veale won gold in rimfire.
Daniel Roberts, 13, and Ben White, 14, eclipsed the men in the open C grade centrefire.
This competition was desperately close between the two boys with only two v's between them after the first day of centrefire and it came down to the last event on the second day before Ben secured the winners badge.
In the junior team Arteom Kryu-chenkov won centrefire and Alex Young took out rimfire, while Martin Tisdell, Kody O'Neill and Shaun Alexander, showed there is more talent on its way.
The weather conditions on the third day of competition were terrible, the winds were so strong the competitors had trouble staying on their feet, but still managed to get some great shots in.
