  • Wairarapa District Champs 26 Mar

    High Gun - D. Smith45 competitors arrived for the Wairarapa District Champs, hosted by the Hutt Valley Clay Target Club in good conditions, overcast most of the day but no wind.  That's right, no wind.  We had visiting shooters from Barrytown in the South to Waikato in the North, including two Mike Davis's, one from Eketahuna and the other from Hawkes Bay.

    First up was the Skeet. With only two possibles shot, Dave Smith and Grant Wareham shot off for the HOA with Grant Wareham prevailing with the shoot off only going to station 1.  Josh Nilsson won 1st A grade with the only 24 and Darryn Plows took out 2nd A grade from Ryan Nelson after a shoot off on 23's.  Dave Smith won the B grade with his possible followed by Gary Girvan taking 2nd B grade and Wayne Pym taking 3rd B grade after a shoot off on 23's.  Mitchell Davis won the C grade, David Donald took out 2nd C grade and Mike Davis (Eke) was 3rd C grade after a shoot off on 21's.  The two man teams were tied, shared by Ryan Nelson & Steven Beall and Robert Prince & Peter Borrie on 45's.

  • NZ and NI Sporting Champs 19 Feb

    2017 NZ Sporting Champion - J. Younger with Chris from Beretta NZOver 160 shooters were treated to an exhibition of shooting during the closing stanza of the North Island and New Zealand Sporting Championships held at Hutt Valley Clay Target Club.  Amongst those shooting off were John Younger (Aus) and Adam Hirchfield (Aus) for HOA and Geoff Wells and Mark Vessey for 2nd AA grade.

     

    Adam Hirchfield had previously clinched the NI title in a shootoff with Hutt Valley's own Adam Green on Friday.

     

    After the weekend's shooting over 16 fields spread over 60 acres of the clubs sprawling grounds we were left to watch the best shooters in this part of the world tackle a captivating series of targets.  John Younger needs no introduction being world ranked and an extensive CV, and his trademark relaxed style saw off perhaps the "next best thing" in Aussie shooting in Adam who latched onto the targets quickly and authoritatively.

     

    Mark Vessey's guile accounted for Geoff Wells for the placings. Also of note was Katrina Clancy (Aus) shooting off for 2nd C grade who compiled an impressive 19/25 to comprehensively stamp her mark as one to watch over the near future.

  • Announcement from the Wairarapa Gun Club

    Wairarapa Gun Club LogoThe Wairarapa Gun Club are progressing well with being able to shoot on their own grounds, however, there may be an opportunity to change the need to shoot Steel only.  So that this opportunity isn’t jeopardised, the Wairarapa Gun Club have taken the decision not to shoot on their new ground until this has been sorted.

     

    On this basis, the Wairarapa District Championships (26 March) will now be hosted by Hutt Valley Clay Target Club.  Please keep an eye on this space for further updates.
