200 Meter Benchrest Rifle Match

August 31st 2014 200 Meter Benchrest Rifle Match Results

Sixteen shooters from as far away as Dryden, Emo and Brandon hunkered down under our new roof, as rain started to fall about mid-morning. At times it rained hard making it difficult to shoot through a sheet of water and distinguish bullet holes through the optics.

Two new range records were set. In Varmint Hunter class, a tie between Helene Rannou and Donovan Jack, both with 226 points was settled by X count with Donovan taking first place besting the previous record set by Barry Marciniac by one point.

In Hunter class Rod Jack annihilated the previous record of 215 – 3X set by Ken Chambers by 21 points.

There were some real three way horse races in Varmint Hunter and Varmint for Score/Open Classes with the outcome contested right down to the last target.

Three new Club range records were set. 14 year old Donovan Jack shot the first 50 score target in competition in Varmint Hunter Class with an unfamiliar rifle.

Also in Varmint Hunter Class Jacques Choquette set a new aggregate score of 237/250 beating the previous record by 14 points.

In Varmint for Score/Open class Matt Cyr made no mistakes and shot clean with 250 points out of a possible 250 points.

Good shooting! Thanks to the shooters and volunteers who helped make it a memorable day.
