Hot & windy conditions no deterrent for Hall
Uncomfortably hot and gusty wind didn’t stop acclaimed 5 Stand Sporting Clays champion Peter Hall putting on a top display of marksmanship at Wangaratta on Sunday 9 February. Hall dropped only seven targets out of the 100 target event to claim overall champion on the day. A splendid performance under very difficult conditions that must rate as one of the best displays of shotgunning skills seen locally and probably anywhere else for this challenging discipline.
Peter’s son Robert was only two targets behind to win 2nd in AA grade with a score of 91/100. A tremendous result for both father and son and a result of many hours of practice honing their considerable skills and abilities with using a shotgun.
Visiting shooter Alan Perryman shot another good score of 82/100 winning A grade, one target ahead of Christian McGauran on 81/100. Veteran clay target enthusiast and regular local shooter Reg. Carmody easily took out B grade with 77/100 and Colin Repacholi won 2nd place on 68/100. C grade was won by Trevor Bussell with a result of 67/100, only one target in front of junior shooter Rhys McGauran at 66/100.
Best veteran for the day was Neil McIntosh shooting 69/100.
