The Merton Vale 1500 yd match was shot the day after Match Rifle had finished. We had some rain that night but conditions for the long range shoot were still very difficult for the 9 brave shooters who had a go.

1500 yds mound

All shooters shot 1500 yds, 3 times. Some felt like it was more, but it was a great fun shoot and we are lucky to have such a great range to shoot on and a land owner who gives us such support.

Now for the scores and winners:

Lew Horwood – winner 52.1 60.0 48.0 160.1
Peter Maher – 2nd 46.1 50.2 63.0 159.3
Steve Clark 42.1 57.0 57.2 156.3

Terry Sheedy 39.0 71.0 61.0 171.0
Kevin Thomas 50.1 48.1 47.1 145.3
Neville McKinnell 29.0 41.0 60.1 130.1
Mark Walters and the winner, Lew Horwood.

As can be seen from the above, some good scores and all had to work hard to get them.
