Jory drops 8 – wins overall
The Wangaratta Clay Target Club has been blessed with perfect weather for several of its most recent shoots and Sunday 14th September was no exception ! As a result, visibility was perfect throughout the day and the orange fluoro targets stood out nicely against the blue sky and green paddock background.
A reasonably good number of 5 standers attended to take part in what is now a well established event here in Wangaratta . A nice mix of Field & Game and A.C.T.A members were evident on the day, which is great to see these two groups of members coming together to enjoy their chosen discipline.
Our club secretary Brett Jory shot splendidly all day, only dropping 8 of the more difficult targets out of a possible 100. Brett, Phil. Andrews and others helped set up the traps positioning and angles early Sunday morning, which created a nice combination of straightforward and tricky targets presented during the event. Peter Hall was only one target behind Brett on 91/100 finishing 2nd in AA grade. A high score of 89/100 saw Alan Perryman win A grade, two targets ahead of Shepparton gun & ammo dealer Bill Eagle 87/100. Barry Ellis from Beechworth, a very regular shooter here at Wangaratta, took out B grade 67/100 with Trevor Bussell on 60/100 in 2nd place. C grader Steven LePoidevin shot 54/100 to win the meat tray and Ash. Batey finished on 51/100 in 2nd place.
Best veteran on the day was Brian Hoyland 73/100 and top junior was Rhys McGauran.
