Hall wins against Seymour
After a frosty morning, the sun came out with a perfectly blue sky making for ideal shooting conditions at Wangaratta on Sunday 13 July. After miserable weather prior to the day, everyone enjoyed the conditions for the 100 target 5 stand sporting clays competition set up over two grounds.
Using the recently repaired ’rabbit’ target machine added to the great variety of targets presented during the day. Sporting clay shooters love a challenge and the club feels confident that this was provided by Brett Jory and his band of willing helpers. By setting up the various traps to test the skill levels of both novice and experienced competitors alike all helped in making the championship a real success.
AA graders Peter Hall, Marty Seymour and A grade Nick Mazurek all shot excellent scores of 92/100 each. To make things a bit more challenging for these top guns, the club adjusted both the speed and direction of the traps for the shoot off. After the 25 target shot off Hall took the overall title with a tally of 21/25 defeating Seymour and Mazurek. Marty Seymour won 2nd place in AA and Nick Mazurek won the sash for A grade.
Junior all rounder Davey Jones also had a good day with a nice result of 82/100 taking 2nd in A grade. Paul Reynolds, a very keen Field & Game shooter won B grade 72/100 ahead of another top junior shooter Rhys McGauran on 62/100. C grade winner was John Hutchison 59/100 with Max Gribben from Benalla in 2nd place 56/100.
