Staff Reporter Stampriet-The Namibian Hunting Rifle Shooting Association (NHRSA) recently hosted the Sven Ahrens Memorial Shooting competition at Farm Zonnewaldt in the Stampriet district. The association also used the gathering to hold its Annual General Meeting (AGM), including the year-end prize giving ceremony. The shooting completion was open to the public and the different regions entered their teams (4 men/ladies) to compete for the Sven Ahrens Memorial Cup. The trophy was won by the Central A team, consisting of Francois Marais Jr, Wittes Marais and Johannes van Zyl.
