Wendy shoots a Darling Downs double
Top Brisbane shooter Wendy Latham turned in a consistent performance in testing conditions to score a double at the Darling Downs Championship at Warwick at the weekend.
With the breeze up on Saturday, the Natives Rifle Club member and Geoff Grant from Mariners were the only shooters in a top class field to finish just one bullseye down over three ranges. Wendy, a member of the Queensland Ladies team, prevailed with 18 centre bulls to 14.
She again finished one shot down in the Darling Downs Open on Sunday, for a narrow fourth placing, but her score was enough to secure the two day Grand Aggregate.
Best shooters tested in the wild west
The Muckadilla rifle range lived up to its formidable reputation testing some of the State’s best shooters at the weekend.
Wind conditions on the open range were blustery and variable reflecting in many scores which went from excellent on one mound to ordinary on the next.
The final 11 shots at 900 yards proved most challenging with a big re-ordering of the leader board.
Biloela shooter Charles Arrowsmith was rewarded for a consistent performance across the five ranges of the Western District Rifle Association competition.
