Sammon Wins at Wangaratta

 

Foggy and cold conditions remained throughout the day at the July Skeet shoot at Wangaratta on Sunday 27 July.  Some new faces turned up for the two events held which put pressure on our best local members to compete with.  

 

The first event of a 50 T C/Ship. was won by Benalla shooter and AA grader Gil. Farish on 60/62 after a shoot off with A grade competitor Doug McKenzie finishing on 59/62.  Richard Sammon took out 2nd place in AA with 56/59.  Peter Finn, a very keen Shepparton skeet shooter shot 45/50 winning 2nd place in A grade.  It was nice to see Alison Harwood win B grade 82/86 after a shoot off with local shooter Brad. Sparling on 81/86.  Alison enthusiastically follows the sport of skeet shooting and is a great and generous mentor to younger shooters taking on the sport.  C grader Rick Palmer shot 56/59 winning C grade ahead of junior top shot Corey Wilkinson 47/50.

 

The club then held a 25 pair Skeet doubles event which resulted in Richard Sammon winning overall and first in AA grade with the unbeatable score of 47/50.  David Jackel who was off form a little on the day took out 2nd place on 43/50.  Again, Doug McKenzie from Melbourne won A grade hitting 45/50, displaying great technique and controlled follow through on all targets.  Peter Finn again came in 2nd place behind Doug on 44/50.  Peter’s son Colin had a nice win in B grade shooting 46/50 ahead of Callum Palmer with another good result of 43/50.  In a reverse scenario of the first event, Corey Wilkinson won C grade 41/50 just ahead of Rick Palmer on 40/50.

The overall high gun winner over the two events was Richard Sammon 95/100 and best Junior shooter was Corey Wilkinson on 88/100.
