Top shot Seymour wins overall
Perfect weather prevailed at the Wangaratta Clay Target Club on Sunday 8 June giving shooters optimum conditions to compete in the 5 Stand Sporting Clay Championship event. Again, the club provided a good mix of targets ranging from easier to difficult satisfying the shooters requirements at these events.
The Wangaratta club is very proud of its 5 Stand trap layout, spread out over two separate grounds. To have a sophisticated system like this in country Victoria speaks highly of the clubs committee and members. Countless hours have been contributed over many years by members in developing and maintaining this multi use facility, which is highly regarded by visiting competitors from around the country.
Sundays competition saw Marty Seymour win AA grade and overall with an excellent result of 87/100. Anyone who has competed in this discipline will know that shooting 87% of the targets is quite an achievement. Yarrawonga shooter Trevor Beach also had a good day and shot consistently to win 2nd place in this grade. Another top score of 84/100 was registered by A grader Mark Reynolds ahead of Christian McGauran taking 2nd with 79/100. Luke Keam won B grade with 65/100 only three targets ahead of junior Everton top shot Luke Bennett on 62/100. C grade was taken out by David Whyte 61/100 with 2nd place going to John Hutchison on 60/100.
Best Veteran on the day was Reg Carmody.
