Maryborough Rifle Club successful for the second year in a row at the Skene Shield

Back L/R - Trevor Rhodes, Adam Davies, Brett May, John Hedges, Max Hedges

Front L/R - Barry Davies, Tony Anderson, Jenny Davies, Donna Kelsall

Maryborough Rifle Club members won the final stage of the Skene Shield, which was shot at Stawell Rifle range on November 4th.
Thomas Skene presented the Skene Shield in memory of his son Lieutenant William Skene who was killed at Nooitgedachte in the Transvaal South Africa on December 13th 1900 during the Boer war.

District Rifle Clubs have competed for the Shield ever since its presentation with 8 clubs currently competing.
Maryborough shot against Stawell and Natimuk in the F class division. Teams consist of 6 shooters and a wind coach with the top 4 scores counted in the overall tally. Despite a tricky wind and varying mirage conditions all Maryborough members shot extremely consistently.
This year saw Maryborough win easily with a total score of 485.38 followed by Natimuk with 466.19 and Stawell 459.11. Maryborough shooter Adam Davies also won the top individual score for the day only dropping 2 points overall.

Competition was over 3 ranges of 300, 500 and 600 yards with 7 scoring shots per range. Competing for Maryborough was Trevor Rhodes (122.10), Donna Kelsall (117.7), Adam Davies (124.11), Brett May (118.6), Jenny Davies (119.7) and Tony Anderson (120.10). Much of the credit must go to the coach Barry Davies whose excellent coaching skills kept the shooters consistently in the centre. Thanks also to brothers Max and John Hedges for providing scoring and marking services.
