    We are shooting these events over one field of seven stands, requiring two laps to shoot the 100 targets each day.

    As usual you compete in your grades so you will be competing against similarly skilled shooters. We have badges and a spot in Gun Shot organised for those shooters at the top of their grades.

    Shooting kicks off at 09:00 and the office is open frpm 08:30 for registrations. Ruth has the food hot and as usual, there is ammunition available for purchase too.

What's news...

  • Subgauge Sporting Trophy 31 Jun

    20g Subgauge Champ Adam Green43 shooters arrived to participate in our first 100 tgt Sub Gauge Sporting trophy which was kindly sponsored by Gun City.  Ian Murray, Keith Ryan and the Sporting Team spent Saturday setting the field, with a lot of positive feedback on the targets. Weather conditions were nice and sunny but the temperature never rose much above double figures all day.

     

    31 shooters were using sub gauge shotguns while the remaining 12 shooters used their 12 gauge shotguns shooting targets only. With only a few shooters sharing sub gauge shotguns within the squads, it was quite surprising how many shooters have sub gauge shotguns with fifteen shooting 20 gauge, fourteen shooting 28 gauge and two shooting .410. I put the two .410 shooters in the same squad so they could keep an eye on each other.

     

    Adam Green won the 20 gauge division on 91, Dave Turner was second on 86 and Graham Peek was third on 79. Sam Sydow won the 28 gauge division on the highest score overall on 93, great shooting with a borrowed gun. Brent Quin was second on 90 and John Varley was third on 86.

  • Willie Paurini Memorial Shield 17 Jun

    Shield Winner Peter PeryerSunday 17th July - 32 shooters arrived to contest the Willie Paurini Memorial Shield held over 100 tgt Single Rise on a clear but cool day with little wind. Shooters are given a number of targets in, according to the higher of their last two common mark percentages rounded up. Shooters scores plus their number of targets in that reach 100, qualify to shoot off for the Willie Paurini Memorial Shield on a handicap by distance basis. The benefit of this system allows all shooters an equal chance of winning the shield. Over half the field with 18 shooters qualified for the shoot off, they all shot off on their respective handicap by distance marks and the eventual winner was Peter Peryer.
