Rosh Pinah

The NHRSA hosted the 3rd leg of the regional competitions during the weekend of 28 April on farm Witputs, Rosh Pinah.

A total of 58 shottists and their families including dear Jack attended the gathering with people travelling from as far as Oshakati and Henties Bay to take part.

The event was also graced by the presence Jan Prinzen, who came all the way from the Netherlands. The 223 class was conducted on Friday followed by the open competition on Saturday.

The competition consisted of six courses and first up was a baboon target at approx 110m shot from a freehand standing position. The 2nd course was a gong course shot from shooting sticks, kneeling or sitting.

Next up was another gong course from a truly veldskiet position – one had to use the branches of an old dead tree.

The 4th course was the trickiest of the day where shottists had to engage a dassie (rock hyrax) target in a speed shoot stage – 45 seconds for five shots at a dassie 100m away takes some shooting.

Stage 5 was a warthog shot from 3-legged shooting sticks from a sitting position whilst the final stage was a steenbuck shot from the dreaded wooden cross.

The open competition also consisted of six courses including shooting at gongs from various distances from a gate and shooting sticks, aiming at a jackal from a synthetic anthill in a lying position.

It also obliged shottists to shoot at a blesbuck from a sitting position using a wooden tripod, shooting at a zebra from a lying position using a swinging pole, and shooting at a warthog in a lying position using a tyre.
