Bench Draw

Hi All,

We have completed the bench draw for the NSW 4 Gun Starting in Newcastle this Friday.
Please check over the attached bench draw and let us know if you can see any issues. There maybe 1 or 2 that cant attend, we have left them in at this late stage, just in case a miracle happens and they can make it, even if only for 2 days.

We will still accept late entries, so please advise ASAP if you can attend.

The range will be open on Thursday for practice, from 8am - 2pm then frame and flag setting from 2pm.

Looking forward to seeing you all there.

NSW State 4 Gun

Just wanted to say a big thank you to Newcastle for putting on a great shoot over the 4 days of the comp, the volunteers did a fantastic job of making sure things ran smoothly for the competitors from start to finish. It was great to see Benchrest being so well supported.

Thanks to the Newcastle club for hosting the NSW 4 gun. The shoot was very well run, friendly atmosphere, good food and great people. Some phenomenal shooting by Michael Thompson, Barry Nichols and the ultimate four gun winner the old fox Ean Parsons. Well done Ean.
