  • North Island & New Zealand ISSF Champs 6 Feb

    ISSF Trench North Island HOA: O. RobinsonNorth Island ISSF Trap.

    6 squads made up the 31 shooters, including four shooters from the Papua and New Guinea shooting team plus their Team Manager arrived for the start of North Island ISSF Trap Championship on Thursday 1st February, along with cyclone Fifi which blew through and took several targets with it as you will see with the scores. Cyclone Fifi also took out the power for about an hour and a half, the power coming back on just as we were about to connect a couple of generators arranged, one from the Army and one from Aquaheat Industries, courtesy of Emma Whittle and Jamie Cane respectively. Due to the delay attributed to the power loss, the Club decided on completing only two rounds on Thursday with three rounds and the finals to be shot on Friday.

    After 2 visits to the trap on Thursday, Owen Robinson and Ahmed Shafik were setting the pace on 44’s with Myles Browne-Cole and Gavin Paton on 43’s and Geoff Foster, John Hillock & Tim Fuller on 42’s.


    The 3 rounds on Friday in not so blustery conditions saw 25’s posted by Chris Robinson, Ahmed Shafik, Morgan Kircher and Natalie Rooney with Gavin Paton charging up the leader board being the most consistent on the second day shooting three 24’s for a 72 and finished as the top qualifier for the final on 115. Also qualifying for the final in order was Owen Robinson 113, Geoff Foster 111, Ahmed Shafik 110, Daniel Wanma 110 and Myles Browne-Cole 106.
