Well the Queensland cup has been run and won for another year
Actually there is no actual cup well not at least for the bench rest shooters
The cup is presented to the prone shooter that wins both days.
With the commonwealth games just around the corner it is an important time for the Olympic shooters and all the superstars were in attendance.
Warren Potent was there to help with the preparation of our Australian team men and women
I must admit that at first I wasn't sure it was in fact him so I introduced myself and said that he looked familiar
Very nice bloke and told me that he had actually been in four Olympic Games which is some kind of achievement indeed.
Anyway back to the competition, both days were hot and there was a fair bit of mirage happening which was at its worst when the wind died down
Sunday was the hottest and of course the worst for mirage, Didn't seem to bother Billy Simmons though as he shot very well and won the second days competition
Digs won the overall competition with a second place on the Sunday and beat out Billy by 0.1 of a point for the two days which he seems to be making a habit of as he beat Caden at the Queensland Champs by the same two day combined score
The range is looking really good now that it is finished and the next time we see it will be on the television for the Commonwealth games.
It was a fun little competition and the first three places were all within 0.6 of a point with myself getting the bronze.
I got first ,Murray Cole got second on the Saturday and Roy Muller got third
Billy got first, Dig second and Marley third on the Sunday
Young Marley Blacklock shot great all weekend and beat out Caden for top junior shooter which many of you know is a accomplishment as Caden shoots very well.
Fun competition and a good time was had by all, special thank you to Johnny Plazwald for helping me with my rifle he is a terrific bloke no doubt.
Actually just thought that was first second and third to Team KAOS as well.
