OCTOBER 13, 2018 - ALL COMERS MATCH - RESULTS

Thanks to Don Coleman for sending this report.
The last Fullbore Match of the season indicated that winter was on the way. Cloudy conditions and a temperature of 5C and Westerly winds at the start of the match continued until the end of the day. It warmed up to 7C with a few rain drops just as we finished putting targets away. 

At the end of the All Comers Match we moved back to 900 meters and Adam MacDonald had the highest score with a 50. Andrew Justason had problems with two rounds at 600 which dropped his score considerably.  A very enjoyable day.

Thanks to Adam MacDonald for the report on this match.
"Six shooters came out on Saturday for the Any Rifle/Any Sight match. We fired at 300, 500, and 900 meters and had a great time. We kept score for fun even though there was quite a variety of rifles, and we all fired on the TR targets. We had a lot of new shooters, Perry Wright shooting his first match, and Andrew Justason, Dick Platt, and Paul Plume all within their first few matches.

SEPTEMBER 1 TO SEPTEMBER 3, 2018 - ATLANTIC CHAMPIONSHIPS - RESULTS

The RNBRA Fullbore Section had the privilege of hosting the 2018 Atlantic Fullbore Championships on September 01-03, 2018.  The shoot was held on Batouche range located in the 5 CDSB Gagetown training area.
The event was well attended with 26 competitors from PEI, NS, Quebec, and the host province NB.  We had 17 F-class and 9 TR shooters. The Atlantics consist of 4 separate matches, one for each Atlantic province.  
The Lady Slipper match was shot Saturday, September 01.  The morning had some fog, but it cleared off well before the shooting began.  Final setup and preparations went smoothly and the shoot began only slightly behind schedule.  Conditions were fantastic during setup, with no wind at all. By the time it came to shoot the wind had picked up and the temperature had soared.  Shooters dealt with a tricky tail wind all afternoon, resulting in more than a couple magpies.
The Blue Noser and Herring Choker matches were held Sunday, September 02.  Sunday morning was cool, and a little overcast, with calmer winds than the day before allowing for some good scores.  The afternoon was warm, and competitors once again had to deal with a challenging tail wind. An informal dinner was held Sunday evening at Minglers restaurant in Oromocto.  Presentations for the completed matches were made after the dinner.
The 3 day match finished with the Down Easter on Monday, September 03.  We took advantage of Batouche range and shot 2 relays at 900m. Rain threatened all morning, but the weather held, and we finished the match without getting wet.  We ended the weekend with a cornboil and final presentations.
A big thank you goes to Laura Kaderly and Dollard LeBlanc.  The match would have been impossible to run without their help.  Laura dealt with any e-target issues and looked after the stats, and Dollard was the RSO for the weekend.
Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the competitors’ and volunteers who helped make it a success.

Mark McMullin

Match Director

JULY 7 and 8, 2018 - RNBRA - APM - RESULTS

This from Mark McMullen (many thanks to Mark for organizing a very fine APM this year):
On July 7 and 8, 2018, the RNBRA Fullbore section hosted our Annual Prize Match at Batouche range on 5 CDSB Gagetown. I’d like to thank all the competitors and volunteers who made it possible.  We had competitors travel over from PEI and up from NS. It’s always great to see the familiar faces from other provinces.
The weather was hot and humid on Friday afternoon, but the volunteers managed to get the range setup before the rain hit.  Saturday started cool, but did warm up by the afternoon. The wind was steady, but still caught us off guard at times. All 300m and 600m matches were shot on Saturday.  An informal dinner was held at Griffins Pub, located on base in the Canex mall, and the food, drinks and company were enjoyed by all.
Sunday was another beautiful day, with the forecast calling for a very hot and humid afternoon.  The match committee decided to move everyone to one relay on Sunday, to try to finish before the heat got too bad.  The wind was very switchy, with the flags and mirage often disagreeing on what was happening downrange. It made for a challenging long range day, with the 800m and 900m matches being shot.  We managed to finish ahead of schedule, and get our competitors on the road home early.
Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who came out.
