The 50m Prone National Championships took place on the 9th of September hosted by East Coast Shooting Club. Blazing sunshine, great hospitality and a fun shoot for all.
After a closely fought final, Siobhan Scarlett (DURC) took the top spot, retaining the 50m Prone National Champion title for another year and taking home a gold medal. Sandy Wilson (ECSC) took 2nd place and a silver medal, while Sean Baldwin (DFST) finished in 3rd place winning the bronze medal.
Four clubs contested the team of three championship with the Defence Forces Shooting Team taking a commanding lead and retaining the trophy. East Coast Shooting Club were second, with Dublin University Rifle Club in third place and Wilkinstown Target Shooting Club in fourth.
A huge thanks to all competitors who travelled from different parts of the country to compete. Thank you also to our hosts for the competition, East Coast Shooting Club, who were welcoming and ready and willing to help get the target system set up, along with the Defence Forces Shooting Club who provided the target system and transported all the kit for it.
Finally, a massive thanks to our President, Liam Crawford, who coordinated the event, arranged set up, transport and managed the target system scoring, details and final on the day.
