Geoff shot a possible 200 to win the Metropolitan Champion of Champions trophy at Belmont.

He then revelled in the rain to take out the QRA Championship in both the Open and Veterans categories on March 21 and 22, dropping just a single shot for a score of 199 with 23 centre bulls over four ranges.

Geoff rounded off a successful weekend in the 20-member City team which defeated Country with an aggregate score of 2833 to 2816 over a rain-shortened three ranges.

One 300 yard range had to be abandoned on Saturday afternoon and two 1000 yard ranges were completed around heavy rain on Sunday.

Country teams prevailed over City in scope classes winning F Open 868 to 840 and F Standard 845 to 838.

Two Goondiwindi shooters completed the scope double in the Champion of Champions competition.

Lowell Tillack won the F Open, scoring 234 and Gary Hausler prevailed in the F Standard championship with 232.

Dean Enslin, a member of Pacific Rifle Club, is the QRA under 25 Champion of Champions.

Dean, a student at Queensland University of Technology, followed his parents Darren and Gillian into the sport about five years ago.

He has represented Queensland twice in under 25 competition and is a member of the Australian under 25 team for the World Championships in Ohio, USA in July. His parents have both been selected in the Open team.
