Prize Payouts for 2017 NIC Shooters went into the Association bank accounts on 7th September; it is up to the Associations to distribute the payouts to the shooters who shot at their venue.
Each Grade receives $145 for 1st, $125 for 2nd and $100 for 3rd. Then how many more payouts are made for each Grade depends on the number of entries in the Grade. So for 2017 payouts are:
To 5th place
To 8th place
To 11th place
To 6th place
To 4th place
The presentation of our first ever NIC medals took place at the North vs South dinner, and medals for those who weren't there have had their medals sent back with their local shooters.
Total entry numbers were up on last year, and with all the results coming through very quickly, a huge thanks must go to all the organisers around the country.
Master Grade was taken out by Ryan Taylor, very closely followed by Grant Taylor, and Helen Freiman was third place on countback from Pratik Tailor. A special mention goes to Ryan and Grant who both scored 400 – well done to you both.
In A Grade, Peter McCallum took first place, followed by Lanelle McArthur in second and Jeanette Kinsey in third.
B Grade had Ben Neumann, Ernie Maluschnig and Samantha Riddle placed first, second and third.
In C Grade we had two shooters on equal scores who couldn’t be separated on countback. Michaela Smith was first, Jim Dann came second, and Erin Little and Meggy Reesby were third equal. Both Erin and Meggy will be receiving medals and 3rd place prize money.
D Grade places were also very close, with first and second place being separated only on inners. Shania Harrison-Lee took first place, Greg Bengston came second and Rick Black was third
Prize money of $145, $125 and $100 for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places, plus further prize money depending on entries in each grade, will be sent to shooters via the Associations where they shot, once all entry fees have been sent into TSNZ.
Medals will be sent to shooters, and you are encouraged to arrange to have these presented at a suitable Club or Association event. If this is done, please send in photos for the website so we can properly celebrate our very first year of NIC medals.
