Tasmanian junior wins championship

 

Perfect autumn weather provided ideal shooting conditions at the Wangaratta Clay Target Club for the Down The Line championship events held on Saturday 19th. Visitors from Tasmania, Beaufort and our local region thoroughly enjoyed the facilities and friendly environment that the Wangaratta club is well known for.

 

The program included a total of 110 targets, which kept the shooters on the day busy doing what they like best – busting clays! The club uses White Flyer targets thrown by Gemini traps, resulting in consistently presented targets that shooters appreciate.

 

The 10 target single barrel eye opener was shared by 5 shooters. The first championship event was a 50 target single barrel and was nicely taken out by A grader Darren Clark on 47/50. 2nd in A was Ian Towers with a tally of 48/52. Local shooter Bruce Henshall won AA with 46/50 just ahead of Grant Whiteley from Tasmania 45/50. Andrew Calandro won B grade shooting 44/50 with Roger Lyford taking 2nd place 43/50. Alex Wozniak returned a score of 38/50 winning C grade.

 

It was nice to see junior shooter Luke Whiteley from Tasmania win the 50 target double barrel event. Luke shot like a true champion winning A grade and overall with a perfect result of 79/79. Alan Ford dropped one target with a tally of 70/71 placing him 2nd in this grade. Laurie Fitzpatrick who kindly took on the job as shoot marshal for the day won AA on 78/79, ahead of John Wojcik 73/74 after a shoot off. One of our club sponsors, Tony Ruvolo had a good day over the traps winning B grade on 69/71. Junior top shot Callum Parker was placed 2nd with 68/71. Once again, Alex Wozniak took out C grade with 47/50.

 

The high gun awards went to Overall - Darren Clark 106/110, Junior - Callum Palmer 100/110 and Veteran – Max Gribben 103/110.
