‘MORTENSEN ONLY 6 DOWN’
Wangaratta Clay Target Club welcomed several new shooters to our grounds on Saturday 3 October for a 100 target 5 Stand Sporting Clays Championship. Perfect weather once again welcomed shooters to our well manicured grounds, maintained by dedicated and hard working committee member and groundsman Graham Coyle.
A very interesting and challenging range of targets were set up by an eager group of members early on the day. All targets were well within range of the guns and several stations that appeared straightforward proved more challenging than they appeared. This arrangement is sometimes tricky to achieve, however the experienced trap setters on the day did an excellent job in providing excellent targets throughout the entire event.
AA grader Brian Mortensen had a nice overall win by demolishing 94/100, closely followed by his friend Bill Zago 92/100. Warwick Kelvy shot 80/100 giving him a comfortable win in A grade, with Alex Mikolojewicz taking 2nd place on 74/100. Regular competitor and local member Trevor Bussell, a multi disciplined all rounder, claimed the sash in B grade with an excellent tally of 86/100, followed closely by Graham Coyle on 85/100. Ian Auranaune, a very keen 5 stand competitor, put in a sterling performance by shooting 78/100 to win C grade. Geoff Agnew also shot very a good result of 77/100, deservedly winning 2nd in his grade.
The club would like to remind all shooters that the grounds are now open every Wednesday and Saturday afternoons (excepting the 3rd Saturday of the month) for 5 Stand Sporting Clays practice sessions. Please contact Brian Reid for more information ph. 03 57217799
