The Coffs Harbour Rifle Club held a small memorial marking a hundred years since the last cavalry charge at Beersheba by the Australian 4th Light Horse Brigade. The ANZAC competition saw members using ‘As Issued’ Service rifles with open sights alongside traditional scoped rifles. Light showers started the day before clearing to a pleasant morning. The first discipline was 100M standing unsupported, where competitors used only a sling and their fitness to steady the rifle. The next distance was 200M however competitors lay down in the prone position which was also unsupported. On Sunday the competitors all shot from the 300M distance in the prone position. It was near on perfect conditions weather wise and we managed to complete the match before lunch.
