RIFLE CLUBS' CONTEST. I I UPTON v. HOLT. I The return match between the Upton and Holt Rifle Clubs took place at the Upton .Reading- room on Saturday evening. It w.ll be remem- bered that on the occasion of the first match a few weeks ago the Holt team were victorious by three points, but it was generally felt that, owing to the fact- that the Upton range was considerably longer than that at Holt, the home team would stand a good chance of getting even with their opponents. In the first stage of the competition, th* Upton team secured a lead of 10 points, but in the second stage, the Holt team gradually re- duced their lead until victory was to be. decided by the final shots of the last man of each team, Mr. James Tilston for Holt and the veteran marksman, Mr. James Prince, for Upton. gradually got ahead of his veteran antagonist, and as a result Holt were declared winners by five points. At the conclusion of the contest, Mr. Thomas Lea, district councillor for Holt, proposed a hearty vote of thanks to the Upton team for their hospitality, they having entertained the Holt team and the visiters at tea. Mr. Joseph Youde seconded the vote and called for three cheers for the Upton team. These were heartily given and cordially reciprocated by the Upton team.
