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.
