This was great (very challenging) last year, with serious winds during the sweepstakes and pretty breezy at the final range too, awesome! :)

But, I thought it was a 3 day event? The sweepstakes, then the DDDRC, then the Percy Gartner?
I guess the DDDRC and Percy Gartner are both on the same day then.

All good, I reckon I will have to make a weekend of it, its my birthday after all, so win / win less, its all good!
hahah..just fun to be shooting in such great company.

To me it reads, The Percy Gartner Grand Agg. So you'll have the sweepstakes day 1, DDDRA on day 2 and then the Percy Gartner for the agg of both.

I have planned to shoot this event but now am looking at the weather very closely. Any local knowledge on what the approaching weather is going to do? Saturday looks very ordinary on the bom.gov.au site. I guess its an excuse to tow the van out and have a drive anyway.

This happens every shoot at Gundy! The conditions will be perfect gale force winds that have come up from the recent SA Queens called the "Lower Light " Jet Stream !

Looking forward to it , my rounds are loaded , but the weather is always a gamble , still come !

At this Stage it looks like we will dodge the rain or may just get a little wet for tomorrow. 40 %
chance of some form of rain . We have had about 1 mm on the western downs .

Well Day 1 at the Gundy Dddra prize meet saw 37 shooter deal with flicky but calm conditions. Something us Western Qlds aren't quite used to ! It took a different skill and charm to wrangle the 180's 7 mm into the middle ! Lowell threw done the gauntlet early with an outstanding 90.12 with GS coming back from a 7 month hiatus to keep the AU rep shooter Honest with a 90.10 a personal best at 800yds/700 ms.
The Ammo was made of a standard charge master powder thrower !

Qld rep shooter D Reddan with his 6.5 edged out Dalby team mate J Mac on count back with a 90.7 .
Lowell saum ( Beepen Saums lol!)
GS .284 Bart smithed by M Fairbarn!
D Reddan 6.5 ??
J Mac 7 mm shehane


The weather was brilliant and sunny skies for tomorrow. Walk up start at 8:30.

Well I had to leave early so I didn't get to see the official results. But I'm Quite sure Lowell won it with only 2 points dropped for the whole weekend . Conditions were light but tricky with money to be made for those with the skills to do so ! I know I dropped 5 with 2-3 hours sleep not helping my cause . I definitely was firing at times on 4 cylinders instead of 8 , especially with the second 500m dialling the windage the wrong way ! Very sad !
I'm Quite sure D Reddan took 2 nd and after that not sure ! I may have salvaged 3 Rd after party animals at my motel kept me company aaaallllllll night !
I think Julie or Col got 4 th and 5 th .

But best to wait for the official Nraa scores to comes up. I could very well be dreaming about me being 3 Rd , could be last lol!
Lowell is in Hot form and is near ready for the big show ! Best of luck mate !
Regards Graham.
