Karori Rifle Club is pleased to announce the winner of the Dick Travis VC 303 National competition for 2016 – Richard Liddell.

Richard was sitting in 3rd place after day one but secured top place by the end of 500 yards on day 2. He showed his skills and kept his cool in demanding wind, retaining his lead to the end.

2nd Place went to last year’s winner Nicole McKee and 3rd place to John Ball from Opotiki.

Visitors from all over the North Island entered the competition, the weather held (although the wind didn’t) and we thoroughly enjoyed the camaraderie amongst competitors.

We again hosted the family of Dick Travis VC to Seddon Range, a very special addition to the commemorative shoot. Dick Travis’ great great Grandson paid a visit too.

Thank you to the Karori Rifle Club members who got in behind this event and helped make it the success that it was.

Richard picked up the $500 prize money sponsored by Firearms Safety Specialists NZ as well as earning another shield on the Dick Travis VC trophy.
