The Guyana National Rifle Association (GNRA) Smallbore section staged two major tournaments last weekend at Eve Leary and Timehri ranges which produced some outstanding performances especially among female members of the organization.
The .22 Calibre Precision Shoot at 15 and 20 metres distances for junior and senior shooters, saw the female shooters made a clean sweep with Petronella Hally capturing the top position followed by Candacie Frank in second spot and Edol Castello third. Dr. Johan DaSilva was once again in top form winning the senior category from Ian Rogers and Gordon Richards.
Second day action at the Timehri Pistol ranges produced another competitive day in which the shooters braved swelteringly heat to participate in what some considered the most challenging and fun shoot for the year so far.
There were three events for the day, which saw only the seniors turning out for this event.
In the first stage, which was an IPSC (International Practical Shooters Confederation) styled stage, considered a moving shoot, the contestants were required to move through a series of obstacles, (doors, barrels, walls and windows) in order to shoot at the target.
Ryan McKinnon finished in first place followed by James Singh second and Joseph Chin occupying the third position.
Chin turned the table on the other competitors in the second event with Ryan McKinnon 3rd behind Mohamed Qualander who was 2nd. The third shoot, which was a fun stage, did not add to the overall standings. This was a falling plate speed shoot, where two shooters tried to hit the plates down before each other with limited rounds.
This saw David Dharry coming in 3rd, Mohamed Qualander 2nd, and Dale Hing 1st. The overall standings for the day saw Joseph Chin taking the top spot ahead of Ryan McKinnon and Dale Hing respectively.
The scores, and any other information relating to upcoming, and past events can be viewed by visiting the GNRA website at http://www.guyana-nra.org or joining their fan club on Facebook to receive the latest notifications on future events.
The GNRA is expressing thanks to all the participants that came out to support these events, and looks forward for continued support in the months to come. Special thanks are also extended to Azzarudin Mohamed of Mohamed’s Enterprise who generously donated the trophies for last weekend’s competition.
