Aus Nats 2018 3 red.jpg

Congratulations to the 2018 Slazenger, Womens, and Junior Teams who shot their 50m Prone match at the TSNZ Outdoor Nationals in February this year – Australia have just held their TRA National Championships in Brisbane, and NZ had a win in ALL three sections!

 

The Slazenger match was incredibly close, with NZ’s winning margin only 1.3, this being after a 60-shot match for 20 shooters gaining over 1,200 points.  The other teams had stronger wins, so well done to them all.

 

 

Congratulations also to Ross Lomas, who won Bronze in the C-Grade 50m Prone at the Aussie Nationals. 

Only a small group of NZ shooters travelled to Brisbane this year to shoot, possibly due to the change in timing – the event is usually held over Easter but was later this year due to the Commonwealth Games.   It’s a great event to go to whatever your Grade, the Australians are all very welcoming, and it’s always a fun week away.  And yes, there WERE wallabies up on that hill behind the range!

 

 

The next Australian Nationals will be in Perth over Easter 2019, so if you’'ve been looking for a reason to head west, here it is.  Keep an eye out on our website for information, which will be posted as it becomes available from Target Rifle Australia.
