The two-day event attracted 29 sharp shooters, from Victoria, Nanaimo and Alert Bay, who are part of the Island Shooting League — which holds eight matches per year.

In Campbell River, competitors rotated around four or five different stations which each had their own obstacle for shooters to navigate.

In the open event on Saturday first place went to Don Neratini (728 points); second to Don Sloan (655) and third to Bob Dixon (561). In the standard, Trevor Herrmann (699) was first; Oleg Matveenko (689) second and Dom Piluso (567) was third.

On Sunday, Neratini was first overall once again in the open event with 890 points, while Dixon was second (709) and Barb Neratini (431) was third.

In the standard, Matveenko (869) was first; Piluso (746) and Joe Strachan (743) finished third.
