Last night was our penultimate round of the Interclub matches. Howick won Division One by only 3 points, aided by Steve P shooting another 300 for the night. Division Two was won by Waitakere A with Waitakere B picking up second place from Howick A. Only one point separated 2nd, 3th and 4th. The individual scores are hotting up with one match to go, especially in B Grade, remembering that just the top five scores count for the season total. Check out the results.

Last weekend was the annual Auckland versus Waikato match that was held in Hamilton. Unfortunately, we struggled to fill our teams this year and were soundly beaten in all matches by Waikato. Check out the results here.
Our secretary has put together the latest Newsletter – if you haven’t seen it, a copy is posted here. It contains a number of teams so please check to see if you are in any of the Auckland teams.
This week also sees Round 6 of our Interclub series hosted by Waitakere. This will be combined with some of the Rep matches, so please check what matches you are shooting.

Next weekend is the annual Auckland versus Waikato match. It will be held in the Dey St Range, Hamilton. Our team selections are here. Good success for all our shooters.
4th August 2016
It was the fifth round of the Auckland Interclub competition last night hosted by Auckland SRC. The shoot was notable on several levels.
First was that Auckland managed to field a full team of its own shooters this year – welcome back to shooting Jonathan G who performed well despite a long absence from the sport.
Second was Steve P’s remarkable form with another 300.24, which included a 100.10. Unfortunately, Steve was an inner down from last years same match !!!
Thirdly, Howick A cleaned up in Division One while Waitakere A just held off Waitakere C (2nd) and Howick A (3rd). All the results are here.
The Auckland versus Waikato match is looming large – it is on August 13th. If you have been selected, please made sure you have confirmed your acceptance.
Finally, it is on a sad note that we note the loss of a great Auckland and NZ shooter, Bob Caie, who died on the 18th July 2016. He was the backbone of the Auckland Open team for many years and will be missed by all his team mates and follow shooters.
5th July 2016
Last night was the fourth round of Interclub at Howick. Howick’s home advantage ensured an easy win for them in Division One. In Division Two, despite having three teams shooting on the night, Waitakere A had a strong win over Howick A and Howick B. Results are here.

Welcome to the new indoor shooting which officially starts on April 1st.
Most shooters will be trying to get in some good practice before the grading begins.
All clubs are now back in business and old and new shooters are very welcome, as usual !!!
My tips to focus on for the year include:
- trigger release
- focus on the foresight – check your shooting lens matches your latest prescription if you have one
- dry firing training (lots of it)
Welcome to the new Committee – we have some fresh faces and they are keen to make sure shooting thrives as a sport.
The annual General programme for the year have been posted, along with the first newsletter of the year. Check them out.
Teams of Ten will be in mid May, so please nominate and getting training.
The 2016 season interclub has some new changes to the rules to make it MORE shooter friendly. Let’s all start with a BANG this year and join in.
