Totara Rd & Awapuni Air matches

November 15th 2017


Totara Rd / Awapuni Air Rifle Champs
- 11-12 November 2017 - 

8 keen Air Rifle shooters attended the two Air Rifle Designated Matches held in Palmerston North.

The best part of the weekend was Owen Bennett shooting a Commonwealth Games MQS on both days and backing it up with two great finals.

Although numbers were down we expected that to happen, with the shoot being held shortly after the Oceania Shooting Championships.

In the Awapuni Championship the Women’s Final provided a cliff hanger when Helen Freiman was in the lead until the 23rd shot when Jess Burgess-Smith drew level with both shooters on 226.2.  The last shot saw Jess taking the Final by .1 from Helen.

Manawatu want to thank those Air Rifle Shooters that took part in this year’s shoot.
