Field and Game - - FGA BRANCH NEWS -

A field of 63 shoot­ers nom­i­nated for the 100 tar­get Bull & Feather event, which sec­re­tary Stu­art Har­ris said it was dis­ap­point­ing as many more were ex­pected con­sid­er­ing the Zone com­pe­ti­tion was sched­uled for the fol­low­ing day.

The Coomealla Me­mo­rial Sport­ing Club spon­sored the event again and the weather was al­most per­fect for clay tar­get shoot­ing on both days.

Im­prove­ments to the shower block and camp­ing area as well as the club­house were com­pleted prior to the week­end to make the venue more at­trac­tive to the trav­el­ling shooter.

Two ranges were set and both pre­sented some chal­leng­ing, but shootable tar­gets that catered for all lev­els of shoot­ers. Au­to­matic traps were used ex­clu­sively on all stands of both ranges. ‘A’ range had a va­ri­ety of close to medium tar­gets, with the odd longer range tar­get thrown in. ‘B’ range con­tained more medium to long-range tar­gets.

Sev­eral good scores were posted on both ranges across the grades, in­clud­ing one ‘pos­si­ble’ by Craig Scheele.

Most shoot­ers gath­ered to watch the shoot offs with most in­ter­est in the AA shoot off be­tween four shoot­ers who all posted a score of 85.
