2020 Taranaki Championship results

Posted by Helen Morgan

A smaller group of shooters this year at the Taranaki Champs held at Otorohanga on 15/16 February 2020.

Pictured are most of the prize-winners, except Paul Tidswell who took the photo, and discovered he couldn’t be in two places at once.

Johan Du Toit had a very good weekend, taking out all but two of the ranges, and collecting cups for longs & shorts aggregates, the Peter Williamson  handicap, the mid-field aggregate, and the two-year aggregate. Dave Woods was runner-up.

In the B Grade, fortunes were shared over the individual ranges, with Lee Houghton winning the two-day aggregate, one point ahead of John Ball.

Alan Drake had a great day at the office for a change, winning 4 of his 6 ranges, and taking out the aggregates. Bennie Durand gave him a hurry-up to be runner-up.

In the FTR competition, Graham Piper had a classy long range aggregate to edge out Steve Moffatt.

Paul Neal won the aggregates in  F Open with his typically consistent shooting, with Dyl Eyeington runner-up.

Many thanks to the Otorohanga Club for hosting our Championships again.

 Unfortunately, there is no prospect of a range locally that would have the capacity to host a championship match. We are always hopeful, though. And we may be in a position to at least have somewhere to go in the near future to practice, but time will tell.
