Smallbore Rifles

The Ici Shield was won as usual by CU, with VUW second and CAC third. Bruce Ward was the best of the VUW shooters in this section, with only two CU shooters in front of him. In the North v. South match, VUW's D. Fox shot brilliantly to take the highest individual total, even though South defeated North 1944.125 to 1879.84. Ward. Fox, R. Edwards and M. Burch were VUW shooters selected for the NZU team that was narrowly beaten by Wellington, and Burch provided the surprise here by shooting the second highest score for NZU.

CU shooters headed the overall Tournament aggregate, with Fox 4th (982.68) and Ward 6th (979.58) the only opposition to an all-CU list. Armchair criticism—but the obvious fault of the VUW riflemen is a certain lack of consistency.

ICI Shield: CU 2364.161, 1st; VUW 2339.136, 2nd; CAC 2295.107, 3rd; OU 2239.79, 4th; AU 2070.39, 5th.
