We are hoping those competitors north of Brisbane that are heading down to the Nationals at Coff Harbour the Easter Weekend will take few days off earlier and call in shoot this competition on the way and get their eye in. That also goes for the guys from down south heading to the Nationals at Coffs Harbour, this is a great warm up and it's only a couple extra days, a great weeks shooting, total 3 events in two weekends.

A small group of dedicated Brisbane club members spent the the day fixing and preparing the target frames in preperation for the Harry Madden today.
All new coreflutes fitted for the Everyman targets. New coreflutes and attachments for the moving backers. Not 100% finished but we will have it done in time for the shoot.
If you are still on the fence as to whether or not to compete, please come and support our shoot. More registered matches means more opportunities to shoot. More registered shoots will hopefully entice more shooters. More shooters means our sport will survive into the future.
Thank you to all those who have nominated.
Should anyone who missed the deadline to nominate please contact SSAA Brisbane on their main phone number and speak Michael before 12 noon today in regards to a late nomination.
