Club switches on to en­ergy saver

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

BIGGENDEN Ri­fle Club has in­vested in its fu­ture by in­stalling so­lar panels at its com­plex.

Club mem­ber Brian Day said the club would reap the re­wards as it would be mak­ing money.

“Only hav­ing a hand­ful of meet­ings a month, the club doesn’t spend much on elec­tric­ity,” he said.

“In the fu­ture we should be able to at­tract more mem­bers by keep­ing shoot­ing costs and mem­ber­ship the same.

“Luck­ily for the club we got in be­fore the 44 cents was dis­con­tin­ued.”

Club pres­i­dent Lofty Wendt said it was a great ini­tia­tive that would ben­e­fit mem­bers.

“A big plus, it will help re­duce costs for mem­bers,” Wendt said. “Plus it is clean, green en­ergy. “An added bonus is Day Elec­tri­cal in­stalled it at no charge.”

Day said the club held its com­pe­ti­tion days on the first and third Satur­day af­ter­noons of the month.

“Vis­i­tors and new mem­bers are al­ways most wel­come,” Day said.

“We will even sup­ply the nec­es­sary gear.”
