Hunt consistent as usual
The Wangaratta Clay Target club conducted a Down The Line championship shoot on Saturday 19th July. Perfect weather conditions remained all day and some excellent scores were achieved as a result. Despite some broken targets being released on ground three, the day ran smoothly. After some repairs to the trap this week, all will be ready to once again present shooters with the excellent consistency of targets that the club is recognized for.
The 50 tgt. point score championship was won outright by local AA grade member Daryl Hunt 146/150, followed by Peter Cavedon on 141/150. Gordon Twamley, a very keen follower of the sport, shot a nice tally of 145/151 to win A grade, defeating Enio Cavedon on 142/50. B grade winner Neville Bussell put in a score of 134/150 in front of all rounder John Hutchison 128/150. Top lady shot Kath Wilkins won the sash in C grade on 126/150, with junior shooter Alex Wozniak in 2nd on 115/150.
The last event was a 25 pair Double Rise Championship, which really sorted out the field. Again Daryl Hunt was too hard to topple winning overall on 39/50, again in front of Peter Cavedon on 35/50. A grader Alan Cole shot a nice result of 37/50 ahead of Gordon Twamley 35/50, sorting out this grade. John Hutchison finished with 31/50 to win B grade and Jacqui Wemyss from Corowa placed 2nd on 27/50. Another keen lady shooter Jessica Goodall won C grade with 26/50 ahead of Alex Wozniak on 26/60.
The high gun trophies went to Overall Champ. Daryl Hunt 215/230, Veterans to Enio Cavedon 203/230, Juniors to Logan Wemyss 200/230 and ladies was taken out by Jacqui Wemyss 181/230.
