  I know it seems we're endlessly thanking the people who run theses matches but I for one don't think we can do too much of it thanks to all the Wagga crew for organising this event in such a professional manner.

  There was no opportunity to become bored as the target crews were up & back so quickly you could easily miss your detail if you didn't keep an eye out!

  Thanks Chappo for posting the scores....very interested to note the quality of those scores!

  The Top five shooters in the combined categories finishing within 3 points of each other!
   8 entries scoring 250 or more .
   25 entries scoring 240 0r more....just outstanding!

To the Wagga club,

Excellent match very slick marking scoring and catering. The food was excellent and priced right very friendly people which always brings shooters to matches.

The target crew was first class fast and efficient a couple of little hurdles but finishing the days so early is just a credit to the blue heeler.

The Barrels being one of the sponsorship items is certainly a draw card and thanks to Pro cal and Bee Dee Bags.  The competition really reflects the mental approach to the match everyone wants to win and chase those highly sought after prizes.

thanks again Wagga club to an Excellent shoot Chappo, Buttsy and all the club make it the event it is.

cheers Les

shooting well is more a mental control of your thoughts than just pulling the trigger........
