    Leo placed 7th in the 59th Grand Australian Handicap at the National grounds in Wagga Wagga New South Wales Australia. It was won by Craig Bentley with the only 50/50 from 25 meters = 27yds with 437 competitors.(windy conditions) but two shots per target.

    This is good news, since Leo has been gone two weeks and has not had time to call home....Before he left, he didn't really know what to expect from his shooting since he didn't take a gun (just too much paper work to get approved at the last minute) so he is shooting a borrowed gun. If anyone sees him, tell him the family says "hey" and all is well at home, except for the tooth I broke and had to make an emergency visit to the dentist and his dog refuses to eat while he is gone.....

    Leo Today Friday Won the Australian National Single Barrel Championship the only shooter from USA to win one of our National Championships since the last time Leo was here in Perth, Western Australia, in 1980 with Joe Loitz who won the double rise and Leo won the Overall High Gun.
    I would think he would be well in the running for another High Gun this year.

    Regards Stubbie

    Glad Leo could make the adjustment to shooting targets in Australia. There is a difference. In the Southern Hemisphere I think the targets would spin counter clockwise and curve to the left. In the USA, they spin clockwise and curve to the right. Is it true that in Australia, post five is the lead off shooter and the squad rotates counter clockwise, or do I have things mixed up.

    Pat That sounds like the story of the water going down the dunny bowl.

    In Australia we shoot six man squads sixth shooter starts behind shooter on post 1 shoots and moves post2 shoots and moves etc with one shooter always walking from post5 back to post one hope that is as clear as mud?

    Regards Stubbie

    The guns he won back in 1980 while down under were stolen out of his house several years ago. This might be his chance to replace them...
