Back­ing the Na­tional Car­ni­val

Field and Game - - NATIONAL CARNIVAL 2017 -

Big events don’t hap­pen with­out the sup­port and this year Winch­ester Aus­tralia stepped up as the ma­jor spon­sor of the Field & Game Aus­tralia Na­tional Car­ni­val.

Winch­ester’s Brian Mortensen fin­ished third in AA and said the com­pany was proud to be in­volved in not just an­other Na­tional Car­ni­val but also a suc­cess­ful new for­mat. “Our in­volve­ment with Field & Game has al­ways been at a high level whether it is through the WET Trust with the duck load am­mu­ni­tion we do for the hunt­ing scene and in clay tar­get we’ve al­ways done a lot,” he said. “The tar­gets at the Na­tional Car­ni­val have been fan­tas­tic and the new for­mat has made it eas­ier with tim­ing and run­ning shoot offs and the new scor­ing sys­tem has been fan­tas­tic.”

FGA chair­man Bill Pater­son said the new for­mat was a big change but nec­es­sary to al­low the event to grow. “I’m pleased to say that with a tremen­dous amount of ef­fort from our vol­un­teers from Wodonga Al­bury, Be­nalla and Cobram we had great grounds set and it all ran tremen­dously well.” “There was very lit­tle wait­ing time be­tween rounds but there was enough time to grab some­thing to eat or drink, to have a rest and to get back out there. The tar­gets were just bril­liant.”

Field & Game Aus­tralia would like to ac­knowl­edge and thank our 2017 spon­sors.
