The QRA was formed back in 1861 and is celebrating its 150th anniversary in style at the prestigious Queens Prize shoot in Brisbane next week.

 

More than 250 shooters from around Australia will come to Belmont Range to compete for the 130th Queens Prize. Action begins with the Duncan Match on August 16 with the three-day Queens Prize contested from August 18-20.

 

A history book commissioned by the Association will be officially launched on August 17, the eve of the Queens Prize, by the State Governor Penelope Wensley.

 

A permanent historical display at the Association headquarters at Belmont Shooting Complex will also be opened.

 

Queen Victoria instigated the Queens Prize in Great Britain when she put up a purse to encourage better marksmanship by troops in the post Boer War era.

 

The Queensland Queens is the oldest in Australia, and the 2011 event will continue a grand tradition where individual marksmen and women are tested over a grueling three
day contest at 10 different ranges from 300 to 1000 yards.

 

This year, members of the Australian Rifle Team will gather in Brisbane to compete ahead of the World Long Range Championships which the Queensland Rifle Association is
hosting at Belmont in October.

 

Queensland has three shooters in the Australian team, George Edser from Brisbane and husband and wife Darren Enslin and Gillian Webb-Enslin from Appletree Creek near Childers.
