Shooting report – Minyip 2015

October 22, 2015

On Monday, October 19 students from the College travelled to Minyip in Western Victoria to compete in the 16th Annual Minyip Field and Game Shoot.-

The program was a Field and Game targets event with a variety of targets offered and somewhat more of a challenge than Down The Line (DTL) discipline.-

The Minyip contest consisted of the students shooting at 24 targets in what were perfect conditions.-

The students shot at 12 targets on each side of the quarry where the event is held.-

The competition attracted 470 students from areas as far south as Geelong and Warrnambool right up to Swan Hill and Ouyen.-

St Patrick’s College had the largest contingent of shooters with 53 boys making the two and a half hour trip. Many of the students had never shot Field and Game before. This offered a great experience and all students represented the College in the highest standard throughout the day.

The leading shooter from the College included Kyle Borg in the junior division and Jack Cullen in the seniors who both managed to shoot 17/24 during competition.-

All students thoroughly enjoyed the day and the air of competitiveness amongst the groups was always friendly and encouraging.-

Special thanks to Sarah Kochskamper and Rick Balchin who took time out of their day to support the boys in yet another fantastic event.-

I would like to also thank the parents of students who came along to support not only their sons but all the boys in their efforts throughout the day.-

Well done to all students listed below who took part in this event representing the College.
