Still waiting on decision

THE NERVOUS wait continues for Gillian Webb-Enslin and Darren Enslin.

The Apple Tree Creek couple had expected to find out if they had made the squad that will contest the World Long Range Rifle Shooting Championships, which will be hosted in Brisbane in October, 2011 – but so far the two haven’t heard anything from the National Rifle Association.

The two have been waiting on tenterhooks but both are feeling confident in their performances at the qualifying event, with Gillian fishing with the third best score and Darren finishing 10th.

Darren said the board would also take previous results into account in their endeavour to name the most consistent squad available.

The two would love to compete on home soil in Brisbane.

Gillian and Darren have been shooting together for almost 20 years and they would love to make the side together.
