BRIAN REID 100/100 WINS CUP.

The annual Bill Attwood – Kevin Law memorial skeet championship event was held on Sunday 28th February, with a good roll up of keen skeet shooters in attendance.  The Wangaratta Clay Target Club is pleased to hold this significant championship on an annual basis and is one of the clubs major skeet shoots for the year.  Bill Attwood, who has put an enormous amount of input into the skeet shooting scene for many decades, once again travelled up from his home in Melbourne to present the cup and trophies.  The late Kevin Law, also a top skeet shot, was heavily involved in administrative duties and always willing to help others was a good friend of Bill Attwood.

The day was fairly hot with a light breeze and some excellent scores were recorded in both events.  The club flew White Flyer targets and the traps performed well, which resulted in consistent  skeet targets presented to the competitors during the day.  Unfortunately, no juniors were in attendance this year.  Bill has put in many hours of  skills advice to junior shooters over the years and is famous for his generosity to this younger group of participants.

AA grade skeet champion Leigh Roberts won the Bill Attwood 50 tgt. championship this year, he shot 79/79 after a shoot off with Gil. Farish in 2nd place on 78/79.  Another nice score of 60/61 resulted in a win for A grader Mike Corbett using a 28 gauge gun, ahead of Peter Finn finishing on 48/50.  Rob Holloway had a good day taking home the sash in B grade 48/50 and local club secretary Angelo Grassi was happy to win 2nd with 65/68.  All rounder Trevor Bussell shot a tally of 45/50 winning C grade and John Baker shot 48/54 taking out 2nd place.

The next event was the 50 tgt. Kevin Law memorial skeet championship.  Club Vice President Brian Reid was successful winning overall and AA grade with a clean score of 50/50.  Gil Farish again won 2nd in this grade on 76/77.  Mike Corbett won his 2nd sash for the day in A grade, 49/50 placing club President Phil. Smith in 2nd place 48/50.  B grade winner Will Holloway tallied a result of 55/58, one target ahead of brother Rob Holloway in 2nd with 54/58.  The C grade trophy was taken home by John Baker 42/50 and Trevor Bussell won 2nd place.

The overall Attwood / Law High Gun cup was awarded to Brian Reid after shooting a clean 100/100.  Brian was pleased to have been congratulated by David Jackel, a past winner of this prestigious cup.  David was heard to ask for a loan of the excellent skeet training DVD that Reid uses, which may assist him also, in improving his already significant skills for next years event.
