50m Prone Rifle 2018 Summer Series: GP4

The Prone GP on Sunday ran to time but had some tricky wind conditions and the rain came in on Sunday afternoon the making the light conditions vary quite considerably.

The prone saw 28 people turn out on Sunday and the results for the open were as follows:

Class 'A' - Tony Lincoln, Gary Duff, Ruaraidh Macleod Class 'B' - David Strachan, Brogan Smith, Mary Melvin Class 'C' - Robin Shand (with a personal best), Isabel Stark, Robin Thomson Class 'D' - Bertie Galloway, James Galloway, Mike Smith

Thanks to RWS for the sponsorship of ammunition for 1st and 2nd in class.

The C and D final saw Robin Thomson take first place followed by Isabel Stark and then Robin Shand.

The A and B final was a very close affair. Gary Duff held on to take 1st place, with David Strachan, in his second ever final, in 2nd place, and Jim Godsell took 3rd place.

Looking at the 2018 Prone series points table in the pdf file, in A and B class Gary Duff tops the table with 24 points but Lenny Thomson (19pts), Neil Stirton (16pts), Ruaraidh Macleod (14pts) and Jim Godsell (14pts) all stand a chance of taking the 2018 series.

In C and D class, it looks like GP5 will be important for Robin Thomson (33pts), Robin Shand (24pts) and Ian Henderson (23pts).
