Welcome to the Titipounamu Competition for 2020. It's not been the start to the year we had all envisioned, however lets get shooting.
Recapping on last year’s event, a staggering 14 Association teams competed for the trophy from both the North (10) and South (4) Islands. That is 3 better than 2019. Welcome Horowhenua and Malvern MRC, first time shooters or have been absent for a long, long time.
The last 15 winners have been Horowhenua 2005, Waikato 2006, East Otago 2007, Waikato 2008 & 9, East Otago 2010, Taranaki 2011, East Otago 2012, Hutt Valley 2013, East Otago 2014, Waikato 2015 & 2016, Mid Canterbury 2017, Waikato 2018 and Taranaki 2019.
The competition is open to all Associations within New Zealand, with teams of 8 shooters each shooting 1 x 10 and 1 x 20. Results are due in by 31st August.
Congratulations to 2019 Titipounamu winners TARANAKI
Thanks again to all the Associations that competed in this year's Titipounamu competition. A few Associations didn't compete this year, hopefully they will return next year. Welcome to two first timers, Malvern MRC and Horowhenua.
Congratulations to the winners, Taranaki. A very solid performance averaging 294.875 points per shooter.
Previous years scores for all the teams make interesting reading. I've bold texted the winning score for each year as a goal for next year.
The trophy (spear) will be presented again at this years TSNZ Conference in Christchurch. Last years winners, Waikato, please ensure it is engraved and transported to Conference.
Hoping you all have had an enjoyable 2019 season with more highs than lows, and will be back for what is looking like an interesting year in 2020.
Target Shooting Auckland
