Re: QRA Queen’s

Any thoughts for or against the way that there was no check scorer and shot results were not recorded on the blackboard only the shooters overall score? (Some shooters were very reluctant to put their scores up) I didn't like having to check my phone to see how shooters were going and think it took...

Re: 2019 National Teams Match WA Queens

Stupid Vertical is an understatement!!! The Range is very flat but the trees on the left cause you Vert issues and you only need a tiny bit of sun and the sight picture is horrible because the targets are so low to the ground. The single firing point is 4.5 degrees slope so can be a bit harsh on yo...
