2017 QRA Queens was a blast… quite literally. Starting Thursday 16th of August with a scorching top of 33 degrees, The shorter ranges were hotly contested. It wasn’t until late Friday that the scores began to spread as the heavy westerlies began to blow. Saturday brought with it no reprieve as the gale reached peaks of 50 km/h making 900 and 1000 exigent to say the least.

In total 10 members flew the club colours across the disciplines. Top performers were Damien T (9th FB), Alex M (7th FA), David N (7th TRC), Tony L (4th TRB), Andy M (21st TRA) and Rob Rush who took 2nd in TRA to Ben Emms of Lyndhurst RC in a thrilling contest that came down to the last shot.

Thanks to those who were able to attend and we look forward to an even larger contingent of Ipswich Rifles in 2018.
