Campbell River cadets show off their marksmanship

First annual air rifle shooting competition held

Cadets from all three service divisions converged on Campbell River’s Navy League Hall Saturday for the first annual Campbell River Tri-service Marksmanship Competition.

Forty-eight cadets from army, navy and air cadet units participated in the first-ever shooting competition. The target shooting was done with .177 calibre Daisy 853C air rifles and top Senior Cadet, Top Junior Cadet and Top Unit awards were up for grabs.

Commanding officer Lt. Mat Carlow said the event was created to generate some inter-service cooperation and bring the various cadet arms together.

“And have some fun,” Lt. Carlow said.
