SSAA Coffs Harbour branch held the SSAA NSW State Centrefire Championships at Dairyville range from 30 June to 3 July.

Once again COVID played a big part in competitor numbers.

We had 84 shooters participating over the four days.

We were lucky with the weather with Saturday being the only wet day and winds light for the whole four days, as a result several Australian records were broken.

Local shooter Michael Thompson broke the 200yds record in the unlimited class and had the smallest group at 200yds.

Steve Sori from Sydney broke the LB Australian record in the Agg and had the smallest groups at both 100 and 200yds.

Mitchell Tallar from Tamworth broke the HB Agg record and won both the three-gun and four-gun competitions.

Best screamers over the 4 days were Michael Thompson in Unlimited 200yds with a .312. Rob Carnell .154 at 100yds (these are 10 shot groups).
