Grafton Rifle Club 30m Rimfire

Despite the gloomy outlook on Saturday morning a strong field of 34 shooters lined up for the 30m rimfire event. Despite some shooters having a less than perfect shoot there were some exceptions with full-bore, semi-convert Dave Grundy backing up after last week dominating every discipline he shot, to win his first glass as a B Grader. Another Young shooter who is showing great form is Kane Rose, who after dominating C Grade in the recent national championships and is the current national C Grade champion showed on Sat that he has his eyes on A Grade with a very nice 97(with 10) off the rifle, well done Kane and I’m sure the handicapper will be watching you closely. Top off rifle was very close and after a countback the winner was Greg Mills-Thom 97(with 11), Kane Rose 97 (with 10) and Liza Georgelin 97 (with 9). Seven possibles were shot on the day with Kane Rose and Nick Abrahall shooting two apiece and Dave Grundy, Liza Georgelin and Mort managing one each. A Grade aggregate scores… Liza Georgelin 100, Nick Abrahall 97.2, Mark Geary 99.6, Luke Bloomer 90.8, Andrew Geary 93.4, Peter Tyrie 94.2, Rob Durrington 82.2. B Grade agg….
