Teams of Ten / Andrew & Faulkner


 

The Teams of Ten (North) and Andrew & Faulkner (South) matches are the Islands' premier Indoor Associaton matches.  Venues vary each year and teams are selected by each Association, with the Teams of Ten match being shot annually in May, and the Andrew & Faulkner in August.  The winning North Island and South Island Association teams then compete against each other for the Candyman Cup later in the year.
 


 

Congratulations to the 2017 Andrew & Faulkner winners

Andrew & Faulkner 2017  was hosted by East Otago Association in Dunedin on Saturday 29th July.  158 shooters came together in a 12-mound range to shoot in 15 Open teams and 6 Junior teams.   Well done to East Otago for managing so many shooters on a range this size, and to all the shooters who closely followed all instructions to make the day flow so well.

Congratulations to Open winners East Otago, who were closely followed by Ashley in 2nd place and Marlborough in 3rd.  In the Junior Division East Otago again took the top spot, followed by Nelson in 2nd place and Southland in 3rd.  Division 2 (the Lindsay Smith Memorial Trophy) was won by Central Otago, followed by Southland, then North Canterbury.  North Canterbury also took out the Bottom 5 Handicap, and East Otago won the Top 5.  

T op Open Shooter was Amelia Hughson, and Top Junior was Tim Green.

Andrew & Faulkner - South Island

 

Each Association selects their open 10 team members and not more than two emergencies, Junior teams shall comprise five members and one emergency – this may be by shooting specific trials, using ranking lists, or whatever method suits them. The A & F shield teams event is the split into  two divisions, Division 2 teams compete for the Lindsay Smith Memorial Trophy and they can also win the Andrew & Faulkner Shield. Junior teams compete for the Greenhough Trophy.

Each shooter will shoot one 20 shot match and one 10 shot match in this order, and with so many shooters competing these matches may be hours apart.  A rolling total of team scores is kept, and the pressure and excitement builds as the teams can easily see how many points they need to catch up or to stay in front - this is part of the unique challenge of this type of match!

The event is hosted by different Associations each year and alternates each year North and South of the Waitaki River, and may be held either in a regular range if there is one large enough available, or in a temporary range such as a hall.  Wherever they are held there is ample time for socialising, checking out each others' gear, and making purchases at the trade stalls.  Presentations at the range will conclude the event.

Congratulations to 2017 Teams of Ten Winners!

 

This year's event was held in the PGG Wrightson Woolstore at Pandora in Napier. The area for the Woolstore (7.5 acres) was such that everything was under the one roof. The weather was coolish due to a rare southerly. We had had 20 degrees up to Friday and back to that again on Sunday.


The Rees Scroll was won this year by Waikato 1 with 3891.173. The Jim Hart Trophy was won by Hutt Valley 2 with 3828.127.

The top shot of the day was Roy Herbison with 400.25.

There were 23 100’s shot during the day. This included two 100.9’s. Two 200’s were shot, both by Roy Herbison
TSHB thanks those who assisted throughout the day and especially those who came from throughout the North Island to assist. The food was great too and the quality of the donated raffle prizes meant that the raffles were well supported.

TEAMS of TEN - North Island

Each North Island Assocation selects their 10 team members plus an emergency - this may be by shooting specific trials, using ranking lists, or whatever method suits them.  The team members are ranked 1 - 10 and the match is shot in ranked order, with all the No 10 shooters competing shoulder to shoulder first, then the No 9s etc, up to the top-ranked No 1 shooters.  Each shooter will shoot two 20 shot matches in this order, and with so many shooters competing these matches may be hours apart.   A rolling total of team scores is kept, and the pressure and excitement builds as the teams can easily see how many points they need to catch up or to stay in front - this is part of the unique challenge of this type of match!

The top 10 Teams from the previous year shoot in the Division 1 Rees Scroll match, and all the rest are in the Division 2 Jim Hart match.  At the end of the event the top ten teams will make up the Rees Scroll match for the following year.

The event is hosted by different Associations each year, and may be held either in a regular range if there is one large enough available, or in a temporary range such as a hall.  Wherever they are held there is ample time for socialising, checking out each others' gear, and making purchases at the trade stalls.  Presentations at a dinner (with shooters dressed in their best) concludes the event.
