It was another quiet week at Dubbo Pistol Club with most members looking after mums and partners on Mother’s Day.
There was a good roll up for the Five Metre Small Bore Rifle match on Saturday.
Brett Pengilly took top honours with 601 (587, 14). Mike Root was a smidgen behind in second place with 600 (581, 19) and Theo Scholz had a terrific score of 597 (583, 14) to take third. Other results in no set order were John Salter 578 (559, 19), Nev Scholz 584 (582, 2), Alan Scholz 592 (586, 6), Doug Elliott 572 (550, 22) and Bob Dowling 591 (590, 1). Bec Pengilly, Chris Slapp, John Slapp and Mal Bootle were training.
Seven members took part in a 25 Metre Standard Pistol match on Sunday afternoon with Terry Greer as Range Officer. Rebekah Watson shot well to take first with 580 (280, 300). Warren Johnson overcame some bad ammunition to take second with 547 (452 – best off pistol, 95) and Brian McMullen (342, 184) and Joan Boyle (331, 195) couldn’t be separated for third place with 526. Other results were Zac Bohan 498 (260, 238), Laurence Campbell-Rogers 487 (307, 180) and Bob O’Keeffe 461 (398, 63).
This weekend will be the third of the month so a 25 Metre Centrefire/Sports Pistol match is on Sunday.
The committee will hold its monthly meeting next Sunday at 11am. Planning will commence for the Western Plains ISSF Championships to be held later in the year. On topic for discussion will be the creation of a roster of members available to help out on that weekend. About five or six people will be needed to work each range 5-6 people per range.
Also, the cooler weather means it is now appropriate for the Black Powder match for this month to be held on the fourth Sunday afternoon.
