Junior shooters stock up
THE Euroa Clay Target Club conducted the club’s annual Christmas Shoot at the Violet Town Complex on Sunday, December 11.
Two junior shooters competing against an adult field stocked up on the Christmas prizes with St James Steven Lomer winning the Hamper Handicap with the only possible score of 15/15.
He also won a ham in the 15 metre Double Barrel event in the C grade section then it was Lachlan McDonald’s turn.
He combined with Laurie Fitzpatrick to outshoot the red hot favourites, Craig Asquith and Geoff McClure in the final of the Deauville Doubles event.
Competitors were treated to excellent refreshments provided by the club President Iain Towers and his partner Allana who has been a stalwart provider of refreshments for the year’s shooting program - a big thanks to you both.
