The Titipounamu competition is an annual "postal" style event run by Target Shooting Auckland, with Association teams shooting at their home ranges and the scores being combined.   Teams are of eight A Grade or lower shooters, who each shoot one 10 and one 20 shot card.   The trophy, a carved spear, is presented at the annual TSNZ Annual General Meeting. 

The name "Titipounamu"  very appropriately comes from the Maori word for the Rifleman bird.


The 2017 Titipounamu winners are Mid-Canterbury

Thanks to all the Associations that competed again in this years competition, and also to Mid Canterbury for the first time.
Congratulations to the winner and first time competitors Mid Canterbury. A narrow win but a win all the same.
Previous years scores for all the teams makes interesting reading.
The trophy (spear) will be presented again at this years TSNZ Conference. Last years winners, Waikato, please ensure it is engraved and transported to Conference.
Hoping you all have had a good 2017 season and will be back for another in 2018.
