Hams and Turkeys at Wangaratta
A warm and fine day prevailed at the Wangaratta Clay Target Club Xmas shoot on Saturday 20 December. A nice crowd of 46 shooters came along to our popular club to enjoy a relaxed day of novelty events in a festive atmosphere.
The club opened all three layouts for shooters to try out and some good scores were achieved by some in a different discipline than they would normally participate in. As usual, the hams and turkeys proved very popular again as trophies. A relaxed BBQ was held at the end of the day giving all present a chance to have a chin wag and wish each other the best for the festive season. Thanks to Gordon Twamley for providing two sides of lamb for the raffle.
The 25 T D/B results were: AA, Rod. Wilson 25/25, Jason Wilson 25/25. A, Stephen Murphy 25/25, Christian McGauran 32/33. B, Ern Wemyss 25/25, Neville Bussell 24/25. C, Brad Carey 22/25, Rhys McGauran 26/30.
