The Natives Rifle Club held its annual two-day Prize Meeting at the Belmont Rifle Range on Saturday and Sunday June 13th and 14th
and in doing so created it's own piece of history by conducting the competition entirely on Hexta Electronic Targets, the first time
these targets have been used for an open prize meeting in Queenland.

The feedback to the Natives Rifle Club has been overwhelmingly positive and the Club has judged the event to be an outstanding success
for the Club and the eleven Hexta Electronic Target systems which proved their reliability in the drizzle and light rain which was
the only disappointment in an otherwise enjoyable experience for the almost one hundred competitors who participated over the two days.
The rain forced the abandonment of the pairs match and the 1000 yards match where the area is still recovering from a reconstruction program.

Hexta system designer, Dmitri Kazakov, a member of the Roseville NSW club, was on hand to compete in this historic event
 and to watch over his creation with the help of local volunteers, Natives Club members and members of other MDRA clubs who
assisted any unfamiliar competitors with the set up and operation of the shooter and scorer monitors.

Mirko Teglasi of the Brisbane Rifle Club dropped just two points to win the event for the second consecutive year
 by a single central bullseye from fellow club member, Geoff Grosskreutz.

Mirko Teglasi displays his number 1 badge

The Keith Affleck Belt match, competed for as a separate competition by the top eleven shooters in the Prize Meeting Grand Aggregate,
was altered to a seven shot match at 900 yards.  The winner of the Belt was Kim O'Loghlen of the Natives Club with an excellent score of 35.7.

A couple of stand-out performances were achieved by Natives Club members.
Luke Baker won the Day-1 C Grade Aggregate with an A Grade score of 147.11. 
Well done Luke and congratulations on your promotion to B Grade!

Wendy Latham suffered a "sabotage" by husband, Wayne, who knocked her rifle over and bent the wind arm on her rear sight!
Despite this, Wendy recovered from a couple of resulting wayward inners for sighters to shoot a magnificent 50.10 at 800 yards on Day-2.
Congratulations Wendy on this wonderful-to-watch shoot.
