Well the WA Fly State Titles are done and dusted and was sponsored by Nightforce and Barry and Sons Firearms
on Saturday we the 500m DF LG and then HG. we were not blessed with good weather but storms and winds up to 50km/h but we soldered through with some rain during the shoot and very tricky winds coming straight as us flicking all over the place and nothing consistent..
Just as we finished LG the heavens opened up and we were delayed for about 1.5 hours over lunch.
When then got started and completed our HG warmers then the rains came again and another 30min delay as we couldn't even see the targets.
but once the rain stopped the conditions got better and we had a consistent wind straight across the range left to right and score picked up for HG
