Northern IRB

TOWNSVILLE is hosting the first round of the Northern I.R.B Challenge; our shoot is sponsored again by TOWNSVILLE GUN SHOP AND NOW NIGHT FORCE SCOPES .
Our first of the five rounds will be held in Townsville, on the weekend of the 16th-17th of MARCH 2019 at the SSAA Townsville Range.
Directions and a map are on our web site northqueenslandbenchrestshooters.org or on our Facebook page North Queensland Benchrest Shooters Group, also SSAA Townsville.
Our range is located 25kms from Townsville City heading towards Hervey’s range. There are motels in the city and a caravan park is located on Hervey Range Road just past 1300Smiles Stadium. From 1300 Smiles Stadium to the range is about a 15minute drive to the gate.
Everyone is welcome to camp on range in the camping area and there is plenty of room for caravans and tents. Power is available for those that require it, a fee of $5.00 a night is charged. There are toilets and hot/cold showers and the culvert on the road into the range has been replaced so caravans can access the range easily.
Your match director is WALLY BAWDEN,
Nomination fees are $30.00 for the event, which includes breakfast and lunch on the Sunday the 17th, with practice and range set up stating at around midday on the Saturday the 17th. We welcome all juniors to join us and the nomination fee will be $15. Early nomination would be great for sorting targets, details and bench rotations as well if you are sharing equipment or a left handed shooter.
Our nomination form can be found on our website and forwarded back to use so we can cater for food and prepare targets ahead of the shoot.
Payment of nomination and camping fees if staying at the range can be made on the Saturday during the practice set up time, correct money would be preferred as we have limited change, and this can be paid when filling in the attendance book upon arrival to the range.
SSAA National Membership and Shooters licence must be current and sighted.
There will also be a short meeting after presentations on the Sunday to decide when and where next shoot is to be and any other items arising to put forward to help with future shoots.
If you have any enquiries please contact Wally Bawden via email: wally289@bigpond.com or by phoning mobile 0417 643 107

NORTHERN I R B CHALLENGE RESULTS

Was an excellent turn out with some 27 computers and some spectators the day was over cast and the threat of rain was ever present a minor shower during the first two cards was nothing to be concerned about the morning was amounting to a great shoot with some top scores after the first two cards breaking for lunch when the rain came down and was looking like washing out the last card but after the lunch break it stopped and lets us finish off the day some really good scores and a photo session that followed the top shooters in the three categories I run can be seen below in the score I have lots of photos to send out the sponsors for which made a very good end to the day with some very happy shooters going off with some very good prizes I would like to thank
NIGHT FORCE, TOWNSVILLE GUN SHOP ALSO THROUGH THEM T S A OUT DOORS
I hope that they will all come back on board for next year’s shoot thanks to them once again

Northern IRB Challenge

Great time and everyone enjoyed each others company, some difficult conditions between the showers and humidity off the scale at times. We hope to have more shooters join us and see what all the fuss is about next year so we can make it even bigger. Monday was real struggle after the effort put in and I know that Wally our match director was really feeling it. A big thank you to everyone who helped to make this years event the best in a round robin competition.

We had some great prizes and we are very grateful to our sponsors, who kindly donated them. Townsville Guns, Nightforce and TSA Outdoors have made our shoot the standout and with many travelling some 4 hours from the north and south to join us, it is great that to see see everyone again and we hope to see more new faces next year.
