It was a cool but fine day and we were lucky to be able to borrow Roseville Rifle Club’s HEXTA Electronic targets for the shoot. The shoot was 2 sighters and 10 counting shots over distances of 600m, 500m and 300m and 12 shooters participated. The Doug King Master’s has been a prestigious event on our calender for over 34 years, for the top shooters in the club,  and this year it was won by our current club champion Cathy Burnitt with a score of 147.13 from Alan Ashworth on 146.16 and Geoff King on 145.11. The Captains Trophy is another of our long standing prestigious trophies and is competed for by our top B and C graders and  this year was won by Ian White with a score of 133.05. The Ku-Ring-Gai Pistol Club has very generously donated a trophy to HRC for our top F Class shooters and this was the inaugural year with the winner being Andrew Beavis with score of 175.14.
