The Spike or Victoria University College Review June 1926

Haslam Shield Competition

Haslam Shield Competition.

In this competition the Rifle Team put up a very disappointing performance. After the success of the team in the Imperial Universities Competition a good result was expected when the Haslam Shield was shot for, but the team failed to live up to its reputation. There was a certain amount of difficulty in getting the Range when it was wanted, and a good deal of delay owing to the Wellington Rifle Association's annual meeting, and this resulted in the team having to fire the match without much practice, but this fact is not sufficient excuse for the team putting up such a poor showing.

The day on which the match was fired was ideal for shooting, good light and very little wind. The shooting arrangements were under the supervision of Lieut. Sugden, whose experience in range supervision helped very much in getting through the various practices without a hitch.

Individual scores in the match were:—
Bollard, H. F. 112
Hislop, T. 112
Parker, C. E. 108
O'Connor, R. 107
Ainslie, A. 103
Macarthur, I. 96
Harris, W. 83
Bertram, I. 82
