6 Comments to “2013 NZ Grand Prix results”

  1. Ron Madden says:

    Lots and lots of hard work I must say.
    Great shoot and very well run indeed. Congrats to all the effort from the workers!!
    Hopefully we will be back in Rotorua for next years Nationals, if all goes to plan!!

    • Rob Carruthers says:

      Yes fantastic effort by the club. Well done to Mike, Geoff, Geoff, Tony and the crew. I really like the New Style format with 4 Stands per field.

  2. Lance Dickey says:

    Well done Rotorua great weekend of enjoyable targets will keep coming back to your shoots.

  3. Ron Madden says:

    Agree Rob, throughly enjoyed the New Style with 4 stands. 3 singles and 2 pair, then only 1 pair for the other 3 stands, I think we will look at that way down the track!!

  4. Geoff Hay says:

    Thanks for the comments,the Rotorua Rod and Gun club appreciates that most shooters like to shoot over new ground so with this in mind we have continued to open up more tracks and better utilize our fields.
    Our other objective is to set more technical type targets that require shooters to ‘read’ them, with the odd long testing one in the mix.
    I thought when we set the fields, it looked relatively easy but the scores showed otherwise,even the field setter could’nt read some of the targets!
    The positve comments will boost our enthusiasim for the next match.

  5. Ron Madden says:

    Thats interesting Geoff, as we thought we had it right for Cromwell but history would prove us very wrong. Looking at the targets down there we though ‘thats OK’ but totally different when an actual gun is involved.
    Loved the longer targets I must say and like most got caught on the closer ones, lots of them!!
