MINIATURE RIFLE SHOOTING. I r The Astor County Cup. I The annual competition for the Astor County Gup was held on the Canon Froome Club's M-iiiiitiure Range on Saturday last, and attracted an entry of six teams, Tarring- ton (holii-eri), Canon Froome, Hereford, Ross, Hainnish and Kimbolton being represented. Conditions of the competition were 10 shots (two sighters allowed) at 25 yds, 50 yds, and 100- yds, on S.M R.C decimal target, the highest possible score on each raoge bei ug 100 points. The arrangements for the com- petion by the home club wore satisfactory,, and refreshments were provided In the ground by Mr A Bengry, of the Hopton Arms. Major Kelly, of Ross, in his usual convincing manner carried out the duties of Range Officer, and Mr Phillips,. of Balling- ham, again carried out the duties of statistics officer in his usual capable way. and: the shooting was carried out prom.ptly and in, an efficient manner. It will be seen by the scores appended that the Cup was won by Tarrington again, a team now well known in Herefordshire minature ri& shooting circles, who made the highest total on each of the ranges, and thus proved the superior team, resulting in a very decisive victory for the holders. For a first time team. Hereford were very prominent as runners up, but they were just lacking that finishing power which only Cdmes by experience in a shoot like this, but. we are bound to hear more of them in the future, and no doubt there will be a great struggle in the first round of the Hereford Times Cup to-morrow (Saturday), at Hereford, between them and Tarriagton, who are down to decide the first round on the Here- ford rauge. Some very noticable individual shooting was witnessed in the Astor Competition, the honours of the day going to a Tarrington "Shot" now well known among Hert ford- shire enthusiasts, Mr G Bowkett, with a fine score of 2^3, which included a highest possible score of 100 points at 25yds, and 99 at the 50 yds. Weil done, George An- other good range shoot was that of Mr N J Moore, of the Hereford Club, with a highest possible score at 50 yds and a good total of 286, while Mr C Mound, of the Kimbolton Club, also reached that total, with Mr A Zimmerman, of Tarrington, and Mr F Vick, of Kimbolton, only one point below, all of whom are worthy of congratulations. The order of merit of the teams can be seen by the scores appended:— TARRINGTON AND STOKE EDITH R.C. 25 yds. 50 yds, 100 yds. Total.
