The Spike: or, Victoria College Review, June 1910

Rifle Shooting

Rifle Shooting.

"Fasting must be the correct cure-all because it is Nature's only cure. Any dog knows that."

Henry Bodley,
Letter to "The Times."

Early on Saturday morning, a rifle match for the Haslam Shield, between teams representing Victoria College and Canterbury College, was fired off at Redcliff's range. By reason of rigorous abstention from breakfast (so it is rumoured) our men scored 659 as against canterbury's 580, and the Haslam Shield now adorns our show case. This competition was not an official tournament event, but it is pleasing to record such a meritorious win.
