There were other apologies. One competitor from Sydney was trapped at home by fallen trees and others had various family emergencies to deal with. However, 4 competitors still remained, 3 of them local and the fourth from the South Coast. Today 2 matches were shot. The first was Action M, a timed 10 round match where competitors move between prone, standing, seated, standing and prone, firing 2 rounds in each respective position (hence the name). A.W. took this match by a single point from M.H., both using 310 Cadets and J.H. scored solidly using his 22LR in spite of the terrific winds.
Match 2 was supposed to be a 3P Core Match, but due to challenges keeping 75m stable in the high winds, those 10 rounds were also shot @100m in the prone position. After 15 rounds @50m A.W. was once again ahead by 1 point. However, his failure to adjust the elevation up for 100m and a rookie error in his windage adjustment proved disastrous in the next 5 rounds @100m. Accordingly M.H. took both the 2 Distance Event and the entire day's competition with an overall score of 168.6. S.H. took second with his 310 Cadet scoring 155.5, and A.W. came in third 2 points behind. J.H. did his best, but in the cyclonic conditions the 22LR bullets were buffetted around too much to score well.
