National F Class Team Championships

Victoria F Class State teams are currently enjoying the Brisbane sunshine and some very stiff competition.
Day 1 included 4 x Practice Ranges and then a 15 shot Competition at 1000yds. Our F standard and F TR Teams performed well, but the stand out of the day was the F Open X-Men with a score of 433.22, who won the SA Match by just 1 centre over South Australia. It was tense times as the final shooter, Alistair Kevan held his nerve and focus to shoot well enough to hold on to victory despite being the only competitor left shooting.

Scores were: G Krake 86.5, N Nelson 86.5, T Rhodes 87.3,N Waites 88.7, A Kevan 86.2 Coach M Waites
