Natives Rifle Club's youngest member, Josh Pratt, scoops the C Grade pool
at the NRAA Championships!

The National Full-bore Rifle Shooting Championships were held at the Belmont range
 from June 21st to 25th in wonderful Queensland winter weather.
The weather was at it's most benign throughout the week and this was reflected in the scores. 
Heading into the last 1000 yard range there were seven competitors who had not dropped a shot
and two emerged from that match with a perfect 500 point score. 
Geoff Grenfell of the Bendigo club emerged as the 2017 Queens Prize winner on 500.69
from Duncan Davies of the West Wallsend club only 3 centre bullseyes behind.

From the Natives Rifle Club prospective the BIG news was the success of 14 year old member,
Josh Pratt, who practically scooped the pool in C Grade.
In the Presidents match, Josh won the first day's aggregate and the Grand Aggregate.
In the Queens, Josh won all aggregates and won the C Grade Queens with a score that would have
earned him 10th badge in B Grade!

Brian Carter of Te Puke, New Zealand, put on a wonderful display of marksmanship to win
 the Les Perrin Memorial Grand Aggregate in the 2017 Natives Prize Meeting held on June 18th and 19th.   

Saturday was a near perfect day for shooting and scores were generally high with George Edser of Albert & Central club
 winning A Grade with the excellent score of 150.23 from Natives member, Kim O'Loghlen, only 1 central bull behind.  
Sunday was very different day weather-wise with blustery, quick-changing winds playing havoc with scores at the long ranges. 
However, Brian Carter mastered the weather and produced the only 150 point possible on the day. 

Brian then went on to win the shoot-off at 1000 yards between the top 10 TR competitors in the Grand Aggregate
to collect the Keith Affleck Belt trophy.

Cock-of-the-Walk Trophy

The Menzel Family has very kindly donated a new trophy to the Natives Rifle Club called the "Cock-of-the-Walk" trophy which will be presented to the member who shoots the most number of 105 point possible scores in Club Championship matches each year.

The inaugural winner of this magnificent trophy in 2016 was Kim O'Loghlen seen below with his trophy.

Congratulations, Kim, and sincere thanks to the Menzel Family for this wonderful perpetual trophy
 which is sure to become a great feature of the Club's history.



The Natives Rifle Club now boasts three MDRA Champion of Champions after the competition held last Saturday morning.

Rowan McNaught won the Under-25 competition while Brian Pickles won F-Class Standard and George Constantinou won F/TR.
