Full Bore Match Results

2014 Annual Prize Meet Results

The Annual Prize Meet of the Royal New Brunswick Rifle Assn. – Fullbore Section, took place on July 12th and 13th, 2014 with 15 shooters attending. There was representation from Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and, of course, New Brunswick. The number of shooters was lower than expected and this may well have been due to the massive clean-up underway in New Brunswick after Tropical Storm “Arthur” passed through last weekend and to the fact that several Maritime shooters are presently at the British Nationals at Bisley.

The weather was beautiful with no hint of rain or even clouds. Both days were warm with temperatures up to 30C. The wind was the real weather story with gusty winds to 25 km/hr switching from 9 to 3 o’clock and mostly downrange. We would often dial in larger corrections than needed and would pay the penalty in scores. This made the whole weekend quite challenging for shooting. Despite this some shot very well indeed while others are still baffled by what happened. This is especially true of those unfortunate few who might have made other mistakes like turning knobs in the wrong direction!

A major event like this one, cannot happen unless there are volunteers who put in a good amount of work. We thank these people for their dedication to the sport and to our group of shooters. We were fortunate to have as Match Director, John Holleran, who worked for weeks before, and almost around the clock during the match looking after everything from setting up the range, opening the gate at 7:30, changing target faces, helping with statistics, cooking at the barbeque. He even managed to shoot every relay! Thanks also to Adam MacDonald who ensured that our electronic target system was calibrated. Thanks to Conrad Leroux who helped set up the range and who was chief statistician during the match. Thanks to Steven Stewart for serving as RSO during the entire weekend. Thanks to those shooters who drove many miles to join us in our beloved sport.To all those shooters who pitched in to help during the match, changing target faces, getting keys, tearing down the range, and putting up with tired grumpy organizers, etc – our thanks! To Chuck, Marcel and Leo – our thanks for your willingness to serve on the Match Committee. The fact that this committee did not have to adjudicate any difficulties is a testament to the work of the above organizers.

We want to acknowledge and thank the local businesses who donated the necessities for the BBQ. Victory Meat Market donated hamburgers and sausages that were devoured by hungry shooters. Trent Ford Enterprises, Canadian Bread donated buns, and Miller Motors donated water. Many thanks for your generosity!
