High class performances at annual prize meeting at Ripley

DALBY-TARA shooter Cameron McEwan and Kim O'Loghlen from Natives club in Brisbane lead a high class field in the Ipswich Rifle Club annual prize meeting last Sunday.

McEwan and O'Loghlen hit all 30 bullseyes to win the F open scope class and the open target rifle aggregate respectively.

The three-range match at 600 metres twice and 800 metres attracted 79 shooters, more than half of them contesting scope rifle events.

Shooters had the best of conditions at 600 yards, with many caught by the challenging breeze at the final long distance range.

McEwan scored his possible 180 with 21 centres in the F Open scope class to beat his wife Julie who finished on 179 also with 21 centres.

Julie is a member of the Queensland team which will contest the F Class national championships in Brisbane next month.
