SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 2017 - INTERMARITIME MATCH
New Brunswick hosted the Inter-Maritime Team match on Saint Antoine Gun Range Ron Surette as the Match Director, Range Officer, range preparer. Both he and Michelle Cormier worked very hard to make this a successful event once again. Ken Kyle took over RO duties while Ron was shooting.
The event was postponed during the morning due to rain and was re-started at 1:00pm after everyone had enjoyed lunch of sandwiches, sweets, chips, fruit, veggies
and water / pop / iced tea. This was provided by Michelle Cormier with financial support from the RNBRA Fullbore Section.
To save time and to save the condition of the range, the event was shot 2 + 7 rounds all at 600m which is located next to the road.The range was too wet to take vehicles down range to the 300m and 500m firing points.
Nova Scotia won the day shooting a very nice score of 801V62. It is noteworthy that the Nova Scotia Team had, as members, both the youngest team member (Braden Coleman-Sadd who is 15yrs old) and oldest (John Marshall who is 86yrs old).

JUNE 18, 2017 - BRITISH TEAM MATCH
The weather was forecast to be better for today, but it was still dreary in the morning. The range was a bit drier, and were able to compete at the 300m. We were not able to shoot the 500m range due to soggy grounds, so we shot the 600m twice. All 2 + 10 rounds.
The winner again was Team Nova Scotia. New Brunswick shooters seemed to have some technical difficulties with their rifles, which sent them to the 100m range to try to figure it out. Unfortunately, too many points were already lost and we were unable to catch up.
A great time was had by all, all seemed to enjoy our range and facilities. Lunch today was leftover breads and meats, chips, etc, and BBQ burgers.
Start time was and we finished by , then had some lunch, tore down of the range and then all assembled for the presentations. All competitors were on their way home by .
