The Austrian Air Rifle Club

 

There are no monthly results available at time of print.  I will have them for the next Kurier.

 
The end of the year is always eventful for the Air Rifle club with serious and not so serious competitions being held.  It’s also the time of year when we chose the King or Queen of Shooters (Schützenkönig / Schützenkönigen), from targets that have been submitted throughout the whole year.  The most perfect “bull” was submitted by Walter Roth and entitled him to be crowned our “King” for 2018. Hail King Walter. 


A serious competition is that of Club Champion.  Always an exciting but tense competition as everyone tries to get their very best score.  The 2018 clear winner and holder of the title “Club Champion” was Larissa Kalt.  Hard to beat! 

The not so serious competition is our fun night held on the last shooting night for the year.  It was a new style of competition with only 20 shots required but each shooter had to nominate what their handicap would be…… before they shot, to get the closest score to 200.  It was a funny night with lots and lots of discussions, dodgy estimates and the ever hopefuls of scoring high.  The prize, a wonderful Gingerbread House donated by member Andrew Iggo, was worth winning.  Our winner (perhaps he with the crystal ball) was Alan Price who scored a perfect 200.  

Congratulations to all our winners – very well done.

If you have never seen the rifle range in action and are intrigued, come down one Tuesday and take a look.  You can have a try of shooting without a licence once the required paperwork is done.  A phone call or message that you will be there would be appreciated. 


  

The air rifle club meets at the Austrian Club Sydney every Tuesday night at 7:30pm.
