The dedicated workers of our Sporting sub-committee spent most of the week setting the field, again with a lot of positive feedback on the targets. Weather conditions were good for ducks with heavy rain although not too cold and not too much wind.

After the shoot off Daryn Norling won the High Overall, leaving Paul Hedwig to take first A grade. James Simpson took second A grade after a shoot off with Ian Holmes taking third A grade on 95’s.


    Mal Andrews shot the best B grade score with an 86, followed by Reno Verde and Mike Dasler taking second and third respectively after a shoot off on 82’s.

    James Mackie with help from Jamie Cane has been responsible for the resurgence of ISSF at the Club resulting in the Club purchasing a new Laporte ISSF Control box recently. James & Jamie have spent many hours setting up for this event including rewiring to accommodate the new control box and refurbishing the 15 traps with the help of resident electrician Phill Bazalo and new member Rob Howard and others.
