Summary of Results from ACT Championships:

 Conditions were relatively benign for Canberra except for the 2nd 800 metres on the afternoon of the second stage when strong winds fishtailed down the range, flicking from side to side and catching many shooters on the wrong side of zero and resulting in quite low scores, including those of  very experienced competitors!    During the Queens, temperatures reached 30 degrees on each day creating challenging conditions for all competitors.  Nothing too unusual about that for the Canberra Range!

The Natives Rifle Club proudly acknowledges Ro's string of successes in recent months.

Congratulations Rowan



Natives Rifle Club member, Rowan McNaught, won the MDRA Under-25 Champion of Champions competition held on Saturday, February 27th fired over 300, 900 and 1000 yards on Hexta electronic targets.

The conditions were very challenging with the effects of the aftermath of a tropical cyclone causing fresh to strong, quick changing winds switching from 9.00 to 12.00 o'clock.

The weather conditions challenged even the most experienced competitors resulting in quite low scores across all of the disciplines competing in the Champion of Champions matches.
