Eighteen hearty souls attended for a program of 30 targets double barrel, 30 targets point score and 20 pair of double rise.
Event one, 30T double barrel, saw Alf Niesar shoot 30/30 to win AA Grade with Charlie Smith taking second prize, 29/30.
Phil Craig and Tony Gray took four extra targets to sort out A Grade after both finished the main round on 29/30. Phil took the honours with 33/34 to Tony's 32/34.
An executive shoot off was needed to sort out B Grade with president Chris Brown scoring 32/35 to win from vice-president Keith Pearce on 31/35.

AA saw a reversal of the first event results with Charlie Smith shooting 84/90 for first and Alf Niesar taking second, 82/90.
