THE East Central District Rifle Association Inc (ECDRA) team won the 2014 McAuliffe Shield in the final shoot at the Karramomus range last Saturday.
The ECDRA team were to shoot off against the Shepparton/Nathalia Gold team but regrettably they could not field a full team, but arrangements were made to shoot anyway.
Karramomus were hosts to the Parker Cup finals as well between Katandra and Shepparton/Nathalia Maroon, so with five clubs present on the range it was a hive of activity.
The morning began under clear skies and a little wind, and as the day progressed there was a gentle shower of rain and the light was continually changing as the clouds moved in from the west.
This changing light clearly was a challenge to the open sight target rifle shooters with those in the Parker Cup shooting on the wrong target.
The local ECDRA team set out on a mission to shoot a perfect score with their handicap and this was achieved with some outstanding shooting, including six possible range scores off rifle.
