The new Fullbore season kicked off in late September whenever the weather, rain and damp ground did not delay the events. Meantime, during the off season two New Zealand Teams headed overseas.
The F class Team travelled to Brisbane in June to shoot against an Australian F Class team in the Australian National Championship. The team was M Chui, M Cook, I Hughes, S Moffat, P Neilson and G Piper with M Dodson as Manager. They encountered trying conditions during the competition and although Australia won the teams match the New Zealand Team gained valuable experience in preparation for the F Class World Championships in South Africa in 2021.
