Perfect conditions, but low scores for competition at Sinclair

Sat, 14 May 2016


Perfect conditions did not necessarily convert to excellent scores on Monday evening at the IoM Shooting Club’s Monday competition series. Range Officer, Brian Fozard held back the start for several minutes to allow the setting sun to disappear behind Slieau Whallian but even with non-existent wind, the scores were very low throughout the field. 17 shooters had registered for the match which allowed just 3 spare firing points spare however, a second detail may be required in future weeks as only 20 firing points are available for competition.
