SECCULL SUCCEEDS AT WANGARATTA
A very warm and fine day greeted 30 shooters who visited the Wangaratta Clay Target Club on Sunday 14 February to take part in the monthly 5 stand, 100 target championship.
Several new members from the Field & Game Assocn. joined up on the day, all adding to a wider pool of shooters with different skill levels enjoying the top rate facilities here at the Wangaratta complex.
The traps all functioned well during the day and the targets were excellently set by a small group of local members, dedicated to the sporting clay discipline, early in the morning. The club appreciates the efforts of their willing band of volunteers in all three disciplines whom do lots of behind the scenes work on a regular basis. Without this group of special people working harmoniously together, the club would not function.
An unbeatable tally of 92/100 resulted in A grade shooter Brodie Seccull, winning the overall title on the day. Regular and super keen competitor Alex Mikolajewicz won 2nd in A grade on 86/100, another great score. AA grader Brett Jory shot a superb result of 90/100 winning A, followed by Mark Reynolds on 85/100. B grade was expertly won by Terry Pigram 84/100 and 2nd place to Ian Auranaune on 82/100. Nice to see lady top shot Angela Kloppenborg put in a winning score of 80/100 giving her the C grade sash and 2nd place to Adrian Connell 71/100.
Wangaratta is now shooting 5 stand competitions the second Sunday of each month and holds practice sessions each Wednesday and Saturday’s – excepting the third Saturday of each month.
