Grampian Air Rifle Club paid a visit to Tayside on Sunday, February 17, for the return match of the Northern Challenge Trophy.
Grampian led with 18 points from the first leg, so it was all to shoot for. In turn, they took down a team of 14 shooters determined to bring the trophy back to Grampian.
The scores at the end of the day were tight with Tayside coming out on top with 204 points to Grampian’s 203.
Taysides round two fight-back did not have much of a effect on the final outcome, though, with Grampians domination in round one continuing. Grampian won by a total of 17 points to retain the trophy.
Tayside chairman Kathleen Male presented the trophy to Grampian’s gold medal winner (again), 10-year-old Sophie.
The official SARPA HFT competition season starts very soon with the first shoot being held on March 10 at North Ayrshire followed by the World Championships, held over two days, at Kelmarsh Hall, Northampton, at the end of march.
The next club event is at Waulkmill, New Deer on Sunday February 24, at 10:30am.
