Wellington Railway Ladies' Rifle Club Notes
Wellington Railway Ladies' Rifle Club Notes.
The shooting season is now concluded and will re-open sometime in April next, when, it is hoped, the interest displayed this year (combined with that which will no doubt be shown by new members) will result in an even more successful year than the one just ended.
The championship of the Club resulted in a very close finish, so much so, that it was necessary for a shoot-off for the honour. In this final shoot Miss Armstrong won from Miss Carr by a few points. We have to congratulate these two young ladies on their very consistent shooting during the year. It is pleasing to record that they were second and third respectively in the “aggregate” for the year in a competition for ladies in the Wellington district. Taking into consideration that this competition includes all the ladies who have taken up shooting for quite a number of years our two representatives have done remarkably well to finish so near the top of the list.
Miss Minogue should have been further up the list but she left her run of good shoots too late. This young lady can shoot straight when she wants to as is evidenced by her last few shoots with the “A” grade.
The other members are still “triers” and it has not been their fault that the “bull” does move a little.
We are looking forward to next year when we hope to keep some of the “old timers” thinking.
The Rifle Club held their “Wind up” dance on Wednesday, 12th October. The hall was crowded, the orchestra good, and everyone seemed to have had a most enjoyable time.
