2016 SSAA NSW Muzzleloading Rifle Titles

29-30 October 2016 - Windamere Range, SSAA Mudgee

[ Muzzleloading ]

Roger Awcock, Mark Sobierjaski, Shayne Barnsley and Ian Hanlon took the honours with some impressive performances in the 2016 SSAA NSW Muzzleloading Rifle Titles held at the Windamere Range over the last weekend in October.

The weather was fine and warm, with the winds light as Awcock, Sobierjaski, Barnsley and Hanlon made up the top four in the overall aggregate after each enjoyed success in a series of disciplines.

There were fewer shooters than expected but this may have been caused by a change of venue at short notice. Only one lady shooter, Patricia Hanlon, took part but she was happy to complete the formalities in her categories.

Thanks were in order to the outstanding efforts of Frank Colzato, who made up the target frames and transported them to the site. Frank also helped to move them during the competition with assistance from Burt Wise and Ian Hanlon.

Organisers were also grateful to Andrew Prowse and the Windamere Range Management Committee for making the location available at short notice.

Also playing their part were Tricia Hanlon, chief scorer, and Barrie Pennings, who looked after the barbecue as well as other competitors who pitched in as required.

At the AGM, Shayne Barnsley took over the State Muzzleloading Chairman’s role from Ian Hanlon, who wished his successor well with that job.
