Ashburton Sweepstake report 2011
Report from Coby Snowden
Ashburton hosted its annual Sweepstake meeting. Turnout was good with many shooters taking advantage of this meeting to get a decent shoot in before heading over the ditch in a couple of weeks. Shooters were keen to get started on time at 9am to ensure finishing before the arrival of the forecast rain (which still has not arrived at 4:35pm).
It looked like John Snowden would take the prize, however, halfway during the 700-yard shoot he faultered, where within a few seconds the wind moved from 1min right to 4 min left, earning him three 4s in a row and overall 3rd placing.
The overall winner is Karl Valpy, by a few centrals from Chris Kershaw. B Grade winner is John Fleming, C Grade Brian Hawksby and F grade Harvey Westland.
The range may look a bit rough but the view's pretty amazing!
