With restrictions to Domestic travel still in place, and much uncertainty surrounding the ability to schedule Events, it takes some creative thinking to continue competitive activity. Team Rifle has definitely found a way! Here is an update from Carrie Quigley (Rifle National Talent Coach) on recent Rifle postal competitions! What a fun and inclusive way to remain competitively active!

"Rifle shooters are coming back to the range but with current restrictions, it is not possible to have interstate competitions. In South Australia, we have begun a Friendly Postal Competition that is generating interest around Australia. We started with running this for air rifle, three position and 50m prone, and added 20m prone after a request from Tasmania! Each fortnight, athletes shoot a competition on their home range and then send in their scores. It is fun and flexible – with one athlete shooting his competitions before heading out to work on an oil rig for 2 weeks through to our High Performance Squad shooting at regular times as part of their ongoing training.

The air rifle match has been particularly interesting with shooters from Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland connecting via Microsoft Teams and shooting their match “alongside” the South Australian shooters. The athletes have been able to chat to each other between the match and the final. It has been a great way to stay connected in a time when everyone feels so far apart. We have run the qualification competition of 60 shots air rifle and then a modified rules final, where all athletes shoot the full 24 shots rather than being eliminated. It is great for our developing athletes to experience a full final – something they wouldn’t normally experience in a regular competition series. We have seen some amazing scores with Dane Sampson, Tori Rossiter and Jack Rossiter each shooting a score over 629, through to some of our developing athletes getting personal bests and improving with each competition.

The Friendly Postal Competition will continue running through to December this year."
