Skill and talent to the fore

By Casey O'Connor

Conditions on Sunday could not have been less ideal for the shooters from the Southern Downs Rifle Club. When members hit the 400 yard mound on Sunday morning they were greeted with strong, gusting winds that varied in direction and speed. If that was not enough there was also mirage to contend with.
