Portsmouth City is well represented at the Bisley National Meeting

This weekend three of our members, Marian Nevatte, Jonathan Rowe and Michael McCormick, took part in the NSRA/ELEY final up at Bisley.  These three had already proven themselves by getting through the 1st and 2nd rounds of this national competition, so now they were able to simply enjoy the experience of shooting outdoors at the annual national competition.

I'm pleased to say that Mike McCormick, in his first experience shooting outdoors, achieved 9th place in Class F.

Jonathan Rowe, taking part in his second ELEY final, bested his 7th position last year in Class F and this year achieved 4th place in Class E.

And our club captain, Marian Nevatte, did us all proud by getting 6th place in Class B!

Here were their scores (they were shooting two sets of cards at 50m outdoors).

M. McCormick - 170 (79, 91), 182 (91, 91)
J. Rowe - 185 (91, 94), 192 (97, 95)
M. Nevatte - 192 (96, 96), 188 (95, 93)

If any of you would like to try this next year, let one of the committee know down at the club so that we can add your name to the list of competitors for the NSRA/ELEY match next season.
