The Australian teams are going strong at the 2019 Long Range World Championship and the 158th New Zealand National Championship, Ballinger Belt & Associated Events. This 2019 LRWC is held in New Zealand this year and Australia is represented by our U21, U25, Palma Rifle Team and Veterans.

So far, the U21, U25 and Australian Veterans, have brought home the GOLD medals!

The Palma Match will be held this weekend and we are hoping for a clean sweep.

Ozzies at their best! Only a few more days to go before we welcome them back home.

A QRA member for 70 years and still going.

Glen joined the Darling Downs Rifle Club at the age of 17 and had his 87th birthday Tuesday the 18th of December 2018, making him a member for the past 70 years.

He is a member of a well-known shooting family from the Darling Downs with brothers Les and Joe competing along with his father Albert and his uncles.

Glen’s shooting history is very impressive.

INDIVIDUAL SHOOTS

His 57 Queens badges include wins in North Queensland in 1955, 1957, 1959 and 1962.

Over his career he won 40 prize meetings (Can you imagine – not participating only, we are talking winning!) and he was the Club Champion 27 times. He was also successful in winning the State Champion of Champions twice.

As you can see, he was an excellent individual shooter, though as a cherry on the cake, he accomplished fantastic achievements in Team Shoots as well.

TEAM SHOOTS

He represented Queensland 15 times between 1954 and 1976. He represented Australia 3 times. Firstly in New Zealand in 1961, then twice in 1968 in Melbourne followed by Bisley (see photo).
