LEIGH ROBERTS WINS ZONE SKEET

 

Leigh Roberts could hardly do a thing wrong at the V.C.T.A. North East zone skeet shoot at Wangaratta held on 24th April.  Producing a perfect score in the 50 tgt. zone championship and a too hard to beat tally of 49/50 in the zone skeet doubles, Leigh returned home with some ammunition and three sashes – including the overall NE Zone high gun title.

This is the clubs first competition using new Bowman skeet traps on ground 2, which performed flawlessly all day.  Ground 1 will soon have new Bowman’s fitted as well, giving shooters greater consistency of targets when shooting skeet over two grounds.

Other results in the 50 tgt. singles saw David Jackel take out 2nd place in AA grade one target behind Roberts on 49/50.  Club president / treasurer Phillip Smith also only dropped one in A grade winning him a sash.  Phil. is enjoying using his new Beretta A400, the reduced recoil coupled with an adjustable ventilated rib and stock, has improved his consistency of late.  Shepparton / Numurkah club member Peter Finn and regular visitor here with his son Colin, shot off for 2nd place in A grade, finishing with a score of 65/68.  Well done Peter.  Nice to see Rob Stackhouse from Euroa take home the sash in B grade shooting 47/50.  Rob. who is a keen down the line and sporting clay competitor, announced in his speech at presentation time that he intends to shoot more skeet in the future.  Long term local member Harry Memery shot 51/55 winning 2nd place in B.  Side by side gun  enthusiast Allan Baker put up a score of 45/50 winning C grade, ahead of Trevor Bussell in 2nd place on 43/50.

The N.E. Zone 25 pair doubles event won by Roberts,  placed AA grader Mark McDonald in 2nd position with a score of 48/50.  Peter Finn took out first place in A grade this time shooting 44/50 targets followed by Alison Harwood in 2nd on 42/50.  B grade went to Leonie Johnston 44/54 after a short shoot off with Ross Winnell on 43/54.  Allan Baker again won C grade smoking 40/50 clays with Trevor Bussell in 2nd place again 39/50.
