PIGRAM’S SPORTING CLAYS SUCCESS
Perfect spring conditions welcomed competitors to the Wangaratta Clay Target Club on Saturday 5th September. After an absence due to equipment maintenance of 5 stand competition events for July and August, the club was keen to welcome shooters back this month to enjoy a perfect day of this challenging discipline.
Club members including Gordon Twamley, Rob Glossop, Neil Plumridge, Ian Auranaune, Trevor Jones and Stephen Tamme arrived early on the day and did a terrific job in setting up all the traps. Visiting shooters complimented the club on the excellent targets thrown and everything ran like clockwork throughout the day. The club is looking forward to holding similar days in October and November and will continue to offer shooters a wide variety of target angles to accommodate all skill levels. Thanks also to Bob Pigram in maintaining the grounds and club room in first class condition.
Terry Pigram took home the overall sash and B grade with an impressive result of 80/100, with Barry Ellis 2nd in B on 74/100. AA grader and recognized 5 stand expert shot, Davey Jones, was only one target behind with 79/100. Victor Bowman wasn’t over impressed with his result of 68/100, however it was sufficient to win him the A grade sash. Two targets behind on 66/100, placed Alex Mikolajewicz in 2nd place. Regular Wangaratta shooter and committee member Gordon Twamley took out C grade 67/100 and Neil Plumridge winning 2nd place on 64/100. An impressive result, considering both gentlemen had an early start with their efforts in the set up for the days event.
The club would like to advise that it will now be providing 5 stand sporting clay practice sessions each Wednesday and also on non competition Saturday’s. Please contact Brian Reid for more information – ph 57217799.
