North Arm Rifle Club member Colin Cole added to his impressive shooting career with his sixth Queen’s Prize victory at Belmont range in Brisbane.

Colin was the last Sunshine State shooter to win the Queensland Rifle Association event back in 2006, giving him a tally of 3 QRA Queen’s and 3 National Rifle Association Queen’s titles.

He was a convincing winner in the three day match. With a third placing in the Duncan lead-up match, he also secured the Grand Championship at the 123rd running of Australia’s oldest Queen’s Prize.

He finished with a Queen’s score of 496.63 in the 100 shot match over ranges from 300 to 1000 yards.

Ashley Bidgood from Crows Nest-Goombungee Rifle Club finished second in the Queens with a score of 493.51.

Kim O’Loghlen from Natives Rifle Club in Brisbane was third on count back from Brisbane Central member George Edser who both shot 492.53.

A field of more than 200 top shooters took part in the Queen’s Prize, from around Australia and New Zealand with a team of competitors from Japan.

A celebration of 45 years of the Queensland Ladies Rifle Team has been part of a big QRA Queen’s Prize week at Belmont.

The Queensland team has been in action since the inaugural championships in 1967 and is enjoying success in the modern era winning the last two national titles.

More than 50 women have been in the Queensland team over the years with a number attending a reunion on the eve of the Queens when a museum display was opened.

A one-off Ladies versus Gentlemen match was named in honour of Lizzie Savage, the winner of the first ladies fullbore match in Australia in 1901. The Gentlemen gave no quarter, scoring a convincing 249 to 241 win over 600 yards.
