SRA Pentagonal & Finlux Results

5th July 2009

Tayside were runners-up to West of Scotland in the Pentagonal TR Match (best 5 scores per team). Fife won the Finlux F Class Match (best two scores per team).

At 900yds the wind was tricky, and a sudden downpour took us by surprise about halfway through this distance. At 500yds, wind was easier and it stayed dry.

Having them up before starting at 500 guaranteed that it stayed dry.

Not putting up the gazebos before starting at 900 meant that we had to put them up in a hurry halfway through

Notes: Pentagonal (TR): best 5 scores from 8; and not per distance

Finlux (F): best 2 scores from 3; and not per distance

F-class shooters; most shooters continued to use the old method of scoring; recording 'Vee's as after the decimals, and some shooters recorded using the newer method of a 'vee' scoring 6; all scores have been adjusted to the 'vee is 6' method.

Also, as was pointed out on the range, the Finlux trophy came into being through AJMunro's son who used to (still does?) run a television shop in Pitlochry. Back then Finlux [from Finland!] were a major supplier of satellite receivers and hence the shape of the trophy.  Back then, rural Perthshire was an important market for the new satellite industry; the guests in all those shooting lodges needed satellite television reception to keep up to date with the latest in their back-at-home soaps; Germany, Italy, etc.
