Sports round-up: Anything is possible for Ken Lynn
The Murray Bridge Rifle Club shooter recorded his first possible,
This past Saturday, 12 shooters competed in the 14th stage of the Murray Bridge Rifle Club’s annual championship, this week shot from a range of 600 metres.
The breeze was strong and cold from the right and left many shooters scratching their heads at times.
However, that was not the case for F-open shooter Ken Lynn, who shot a magnificent 60.03 and 57.04 to claim both the F-open off-rifle and handicap win for the day.
Lynn also shot his first ever possible – the highest possible score – during the round, for which he was acknowledged during the day’s presentation in the clubrooms afterwards.
He was tantalisingly close to a double possible, only dropping the three points in his last three shots of the second round.
Everyone at the club congratulated him on the stellar progress he had made in the sport in a relatively short space of time.
Other notable results for the day were John Cranwell with a 57.02 and 59.03, also in F-open, only a point behind Lynn.
The top F-standard shooter for the day was David McDonald with 109.04, claiming top off-rifle by a single centre from Frank Marshall with 109.03.
Rob Paech secured the win in target rifle from a small field, shooting a double 48 for a score of 96.08.
Also worth noting was the rare occurrence of no one claiming the dreaded Magpie Award, with no threes recorded in counting shots.
This Saturday shooters will line up from 800 metres.
