The 2018 SAARA National champions from left to right Arabella Barco (10m Sporter Women), Barto Pienaar (10m Olympic Men), Tanya Snyders (10m Olympic Women) and James Snell (10m Sporter Men). Congratulations to you and all the other athletes who took part and won trophies, medals, performance badges and earned their SAARA Association colours at this event.

We had a very successful 2018 SAARA National Championships that was hosted by KZN and shot in Durban. This was the first time that we shot the precision events on electronic targets at Nationals and although it is still a learning experience everything went smoothly. Although we did not have as many entries as in the past, particularly in the sporter disciplines, the performance levels was very high with two new South African National records for Barto Pienaar (with a score of 620.8 in the 10m Olympic men’s event) and Desirie du Toit (with a score of 547 in the 10m Sporter women’s event). It was also hart warming to see some young rising stars performing very well.

Thank to Piet du Plooy and his team who organised the event and to my management team and other people who helped on the range to set up equipment, act as officials, help in the stats room with scoring and supported the athletes throughout the event.

Johan Pienaar

SAARA President

The Weekend of 23-24 February 2018 was a very busy and historic event for SAARA.

Although we shot a previous NW open on electronic targets in 2012, this was the first time that SAARA hosted a 10m Olympic event on our own electronic targets. This resulted in a very busy day to accommodate all 39 entries on the 8 targets we have available. There were a few delays but in the end we successfully shot all the relays and finished on time. It was great to see the parents and spectators nervously watching the “big screen” while the athletes were shooting.

Visit the SAARA Gallery for some photos of the event.

This was also the first SAARA Open where we shot under the revised ISSF rules where the Ladies shot a 60 shot match, the same as the men’s athletes. Overall the ladies did very well and in all the events the ladies beat the best men’s scores in both the senior and junior categories. This resulted in new SAARA records being set for the ladies as follows:

10m Olympic ladies senior – Tanya Snyders with a score of 614.9
10m Olympic ladies junior – Lyjani Schonken with a score of 611.6
10m Sporter ladies junior and senior – Desirie du Toit with a score of 536.

I am sure these new ladies records will tumble in the upcoming matches.

This match was also used as the special trials for the selection of our junior Protea and development teams. Both these teams will take part in the ISSF junior world cup in Suhl, Germany from 22 to 29 June 2018.

The teams are as follows:

Junior Protea men - Johan Grobbelaar and HJ van Staden
Junior Protea women –Lyjani Schonken, Samantha Alexander, Caitlin Oelofse and Martelize Pretorius

Junior Protea Team 2018

Development men – JC Moller and Tristan Swanepoel
Development Women – Shevaun Cronje

SASSCo Development Team

Team Manager – Alta Grobelaar, Junior Coach – Pepe Morton, Development Coach – Tom Cronje

Congratulations to these athletes and we wish you all of the best with your preparations for this exiting tour.
