Spring March Shoot Report

We had a beautiful weekend with some of the best and calmest shooting conditions I have ever seen.

We shot both 300 and 500 meters. We shoot these ranges in the spring and fall as the weather can be unpredictable.

29 shooters showed up and the interesting thing was 5 shooters came from Alberta and several more form the LML. We are getting more and more interest from the LML.

The highlights of the shoot included not one but two perfect 75-15V targets. Brad Trayner shot a perfect score at 300 meters and Greg Delinheer shot the same at 500 meters. In our rules if you shoot a perfect score then you keep shooting until you drop a V. Greg actually shot 19 rounds in a row into a 2 1⁄2” circle at 500 m!!

This is extremely hard and the last perfect score was in 2016 by Sue Baardsen in the Frosty Farky in Ocotber at 500 m.

This match featured competitor pulled targets saving a large amount of money which was returned to the club.

Great time was had by all marking the beginning of the shooting season.

George Farquharson inducted in to the Kamloops Sports Hall of Fame

The late George Farquharson made a tremendous impact on the sport of target shooting.
He created the F-Class, a category of competition named in his honour.
George Farquharson passed away in 1995.

“It’s made shooting in many places more popular,” says his son David Farquharson. “It’s spread it to various places in the World – he started it to make it possible for older guys to still be able to compete. At the same time it made the younger guys enjoy the shooting more, because it was more accurate.”
