The final airgun shooting competition for this season has taken place at the Bidnija Airgun range last Saturday. Most of the participants were taking this competition as training for their first ever participation in the forthcoming Campionato Federale di Sicilia which will be taking place in Catania next weekend.

In such a hot and sultry day, the shooters did their best to come up with their best performances in both the air-rifle and air pistols ‘mixed’ competitions. In fact, William Vella again showed his prowess by shooting an excellent 574 points in the qualification round beating Michael Xuereb to second place who obtained 525 points. Rose Anne Xerri finished in 3rd place with a score of 515 points. However, William Vella did not participate in the final shoot-out and the final classification result showed that Xuereb was first with 615.5, Xerri second with 596.3 and Vella third with 574.0 points.

In the Air-Pistol event, Ray Ciacciattolo emerged as the final winner with 626.7 total points ahead of second placed Josette Calleja who obtained 581.4 points. Martin Grech also gave a good challenge to Calleja in the final but could only manage third placing with his 579.0 points.

Gino Galea officiated these competitions and was assisted by John Galea.
