Rifle Club — Keeps Up Traditions

Rifle Club

Keeps Up Traditions,

It is impossible to review adquately in a few words, a Club's sport for a full season, but the following notes may be of general interest.

The club fired rght through the season with aperture sights, and entered a team in the annual Wellington Interclub (Union Shield) Match.

The College entered a team in the Tournament event (Haslam Shield), and came thired, winning a Tournament point for the leading score in one of the practices (600 yards application). This was the first Tournament point gained by the College in Shooting since 1932.

Tournament time was very busy. TGhere was a conference of delegates to consider the formation of a University Shooting Council, and there were also two unique riffle matches. First an inter-College match between skeleton teams of two men each (won by Otago with V.U.C. second), and later a match between the four skeleton teams combined and a team of eight men drawn from outside Clubs affiliated to the Wellington Rifle Association. The University won by a small margin.

College Blues in Shooting have been awarded to Messrs. A. A. Gawith, B. D. A. Greig, G. T. Ryan and J. B. C. Taylor. These are the first Shooting B lues awarded since 1932-3, and the recipents are to be heartily congrtulated Space does not permit a statement of their performances, which, however, have already been enumerated in "another place."

Al together an enjoyable and profitable season, with the "Tangirira" wreck as a fitting finale.
