What's news...

  • Winners of the Ladies Norh/South Skeet 25 Nov

    North Island Ladies Skeet Team WinnersOur own Vice President, Karen Hayes, was called up to fill a gap in the North Island Ladies Skeet Team this week.  With notification that she was a team reserve, Karen didn’t expect to go to Hamilton but with one team member and the other reserve not able to participate, Karen got the call Monday and flew to Hamilton Friday for the Webber Ellis North vs South Skeet competition.

     

    Having been in the NI Ladies DTL team three times and never winning the Buck Knife, Karen was more than just a little ecstatic to be in a winning team this time around.

    Congratulations to Karen and her team mates Deborah Pritchard and Chloe Billington.  It was a clean sweep by the North Island teams winning the Open and Vets competitions as well.

     
  • NZ Compak Championships 20 Nov

    HOA Winner J. Ssimpson with C. Zeigler from Beretta NZOver time the cream rises to the top, so it proved as Day 1 clubhouse leader James Simpson ( 99, 95) coolly went about his business and was crowned NZ Compak Champion for 2016 after another compelling effort at the Hutt Valley Clay Target Club.

    The sun eventually blessed the shooters today however the Nor'wester from early afternoon pushed and bullied a few of the targets but we saw a hugely accomplished field deal to whatever was dished up.

     

    Thanks to our joint sponsors Target Products and Beretta.  The Hutt Valley Clay Target Club has recently purchased an extensive array of Promatic traps and control gear which performed exceptionally well, even when under hostile fire.

  • North Island Compak Championship 18 Nov

    HOA Winner D. ClarkeNorthern raider Dale Clarke ( 97, HOA) swooped in to snatch the 2016 North Island Compak title today, well deserved victory chased hard by Beretta's own Lord AJ Buttimore (last sighted swotting high pheasants in old Blighty) who finished winner AA grade after a shoot off with Mr Consistency Geoff Wells.

     

    Notable other runners include Sly Craig Matthews (95) who seized the fiercely competitive Veterans category, good to see you in the winners circle Craig.  The targets were a bit stiffer than yesterdays friendly course however almost perfect conditions meant that one could not wish for a better day out shooting with friends.

     

    Yesterdays winner Mr 99 James Simpson (95) was also close, rumour has it he missed his final bird of the day yesterday. 

     

    Watch out for fast improving Hutt shooter Lou Christensen (75) who finished 3rd in B grade, half a nose from Robyn Gibbison (77), long neck David Benfell (82) winner in B who backed up from his placing in yesterdays Trophy, well done David.
