Well done to all winners
Matt by 2 Xs - that’s cutting it fine!
I’d be feeling pretty confident if a competitor needed a 90:8 to win.

I will try and give some account of today and yesterday.

Conditions yesterday and today were the usual switching and fickle wind with the flags rarely steady and even more rarely agreeing with one another.

The tricky conditions meant many were using a good chunk of their allotted time yesterday, that combined with a rain delay cut us back to just one 800m range (very lucky for me after forgetting to pack my 284 ammo :( )

Those who took advantage of patches of a steady condition were able to score well but most of us were left scratching our heads at some time or another. Choosing when to fire your sighters was critical.

Congrats to Matt P with a sensational last range to sneak the win.

Ralph Garlick winning F standard with a score one point behind the winner in Fopen.

Brendon Crowe winning B grade in his first Queens appearance in 20 years.

I’ll be back next year, hope to see even more F-classers then.

Thanks everyone, I was very lucky at the last range and got a very nice patch compared to most.
Overall the conditions were challenging to say the least !!
To my surprise the ET's worked very well and Canberra ran very enjoyable shoot. Thanks to the Dovey Family, Group Solutions and Hardy barrels for major prize.
