Smallbore Rifle Shooting

Smallbore Rifle Shooting

Vic's team, although gaining a higher score than in the last two years, were still unable to break Canterbury's 11 year hold on the ICI Shield, and also had to concede 2nd place in the closest competition for many years to an infinitely improved Massey team. The margins of ten points and three points in 2,400 possible were evidence that had our more experienced shooters maintained their standards as well as our newcomers, victory could have been ours. Vic shooters K. McGregor. B. Cossar, G. AdIam and I. Cossar contributed to a North Island, victory over South Island Universities, and G. Adlam and I. Cossar gained N.Z.U. team selection, with B. Cossar as reserve.

There is no doubt that even if our team came home empty handed, we enjoyed ourselves and gained valuable experience for next year at Auckland.
