THE Violet Town range of the East Central District Rifle Association (ECDRA) was at full capacity over Easter.
On the range were 37 precision shooters from Victoria and New South Wales, in seven different classes, contesting the annual Easter Monday prize shoot.
The brilliant autumn weather brought with it a breeze that proved quite a challenge at both the 300 and 600 yard ranges.
Two of the ECDRA’s newest shooters Des Coulter and Marty Kelly took on the challenge, despite the fact that they had been members for less than two weeks.
For the ECDRA Des Coulter won first place in F class Standard B grade at 300 yards with a 50.5.
Jack Muir was at his consistent best and with 58.3 and 57.2 and a total score of 115.5 won F class standard B and was top score for the ECDRA.
