Small-bore Shooting . . .
Although the team chosen is not as strong as would have been had the tournament been held during August Vacation, nevertheless it is certain to compare more than favourably with the teams from the other colleges.
This year will be a memorable one for University small-bore riflle shooting since this will be the first time that a University team has included women members.
- G. Harris: Shot for V.U.C. at Dunedin where he represented N.Z.U. against Otago last year, and was a Wellington B grade representative in the same year. This season he has again reached a high standard and it is expected that he will shoot very well in Christchurch.
- Ed. Williams: An American Full-bright student, has had plenty of match experience in U.S.A. On several occasions Ed. has shown us Just what he can shoot when "the pressure is on" and is certain to be among the [unclear: top] scorers at the Tournament.
- Ysabel Corkill: Although new to shooting this year, has made remarkable progress, which she has confirmed by gaining fourth place in the "C" grade at the Wellington championships and third at the Hutt Valley championships. She has shot well in all competition shoots, and is probably the most consistent shot we possess.
- Pam Beck: Pam is also new to shooting this year and has shown promise right from her very first shoot. In the "C" grade at the Wellington championships she gave us a sample of what she is capable of shooting by gaining second place and in inter-club matches she has helped to keep the team in first place.
