Defence Rifle Club Gets New Lease of Life

Defence Rifle Club Gets New Lease of Life

At the last Executive meeting the go-ahead was given to the Sports Committee to give the De fence Rifle Club a grant to enable it to get underway. All records were lost two years ago due to the incapabilities of the then Club captain. Hence the club was not able to produce accounts to be audited and thus were not given a grant to cover their expenses.

However, due to the exertions of the present Club captain, and his committee, the club has been able to recover and with last night's okay Victoria will be able to field a team at the University Tournament at Easter.

A grant was urgently needed to enable the club to purchase ammunition for their weekly shoots, as well as to purchase new rifles.

With Don Brooker behind the Club, the grant went through unopposed, in the absence of the Association's Accountant, Mr. M. Mason. Mr Brooker pointed out that the club could not function with its present gear and that the Club Captain and others in the club had shown themselves keen and capable. Also the membership of the Club had risen markedly this year and the Club had a right to a grant regardless of the fact that audited accounts were not available due to no fault of their own.
