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!
CONGRATULATIONS JOSH, ON A WONDERFUL PERFORMANCE
