BRITISH FREE RIFLE CLUB
FREE RIFLE CLUB 50 METRE SPRING OPEN MEETING 2009
50 Metre Open Meeting was held on the
I was hoping for good weather so as to enable shooters to get a good idea how their winter work was progressing but as last year I was disappointed. A cold & rather variable northerly wind persisted on the Saturday but even so some good scores (for the conditions) were obtained. There was some sunshine but as that does not penetrate into the range by the end of the 2nd prone match many shooters were suffering from the cold. The Sunday saw some improvement with the wind a little lighter & more sunshine, the main benefit of which was the possibility for shooters to go to the front of the Centre to warm up a little.
Comp 1 was an English match for a full squad of entries. The best score was put up by Mike Babb with 592, closely followed by Dave Phelps, 591. Third was Duncan Farmer with 589. There were 2 scores of 588 & 4 on 587 so the old phrase the every point counts was proved to be true.
Comp 3 was a 3 x 40 3P-match shot on Sunday morning with 20 competitors entering the event. Top score was by James Huckle with 1139, 2nd place was 1119 by John Croydon & 3rd 1116 by Kenny Parr. The winner of B class was Jonathon Andrews on 1090, C class winner was Dan Rivers who was entering his 1st competition using his new rifle, his score was 1084.
