The Pro Sporting layout which was shot from the high bank had some very good targets on it and once all had shot we had the following results. In C class Mike Whitehead was in third place on 149 with Andre Visnjov taking second place on 158 but winning C class with 162 points was lady shooter Irene Stockil. We had a tie for second place in B class between junior Joe Faragher and Dave Corlett on 182 but winning B class with 188 points was Will Rand. John Moore was third in A class on 187 with Mark Barnett taking second place on 188 and winning A class with 195 was Paul Mihailovits, but the performance of the day has to go to Mike Walker who was the only shooter to stay in the twenties and break the two hundred barrier to win the Winter all Round with a grand total of 205 – well done Mike!
