The championship, which began in January, is now approaching its conclusion, and things are heating up as all shooters are keeping their "eyes on the target". Shaun Barnes, Ian Banks, Richard Azan Jr, and Geoffrey Ziadie amongst others will ensure that the leader is kept honest all the way through.

Bruce DuQuesnay shot 39 out of 50 birds to finish joint second with Andrew Azan, who also shot 39 in the FITASC, as Joey Chin (40/50) claimed the top spot. Robert Reid (38) and Jeffrey Panton (38) were not to be outdone as they ensured that they were right up there.

DuQuesnay was HOA in the Five-Stand event, hitting 44 of his 50 targets. Richard Azan Jr (43) finished just one bird behind, with Joey Chin (41) and Shaun Barnes (41) also posting excellent scores.
