On Thursday, 4 October 2018 Ryan Hobson went to his very first SA Silhouette Shooting competition in Bloemfontein. He participated in 4 events – Air Rife open sight, Small Bore Rifle Light Open Sight, Small Bore Rifle Silhouette Open Sight and Small Bore Rifle Open Sight Freestyle. Although it was a very windy day Ryan gave it his very best and his scores was very good for a first-timer at such a big competition.
