Euroa Gazette - - SPORTS - By JOHN KING

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.
