Tar­bert Gun Club raises money for MS Cen­tre

Argyllshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Tar­bert Gun Club held its an­nual char­ity com­pe­ti­tion on Sunday May 13 with the pro­ceeds go­ing to a very good cause.

The club do­nated the £800 raised to the Mid Ar­gyll MS Cen­tre, which will put it to­wards a new heat­ing sys­tem for its hy­per­baric cham­ber.

Bob McColl of Tar­bert Gun Club said: ‘This is the 14th year in a row that we’ve do­nated money to the MS Cen­tre and we hope it con­tin­ues. Tar­bert Gun Club is de­lighted to once again sup­port man­ager Karen McCurry and her staff.’

The shoot at­tracted comEx­cite­ment pe­ti­tors from all round the county on a glo­ri­ous sunny and still day – ideal for clay pi­geon shoot­ing.

The club had set up a mix­ture of DTL and sport­ing tar­gets to test the com­peti­tors. DTL was prov­ing pop­u­lar with 10 max­i­mums. Not so many on the sport­ing side – six to be ex­act. There were shoot-offs to de­cide the win­ners as each stand was spon­sored by lo­cal busi­nesses.

Wil­lie MacDonald was in top form, win­ning the DTL and dou­ble crosser.

Hot on his heels were Steve Wil­son (rab­bit), Don­ald Ni­chol­son (dou­ble teal) and John Weir (high over­head). Com­ments were made that the moon was lower than the tar­get.

The club is grate­ful to the fol­low­ing busi­nesses who spon­sored the day: Glen­barr Stores, Fyne Tackle, Mur­ray Smoked Prod­ucts, Archie Cur­rie and the Dochas Cen­tre, and all the in­di­vid­u­als who brought prizes.

Win­ners: high gun – Wil­lie MacDonald, Jura; Steve Wil­son, Oban; An­drew MacDonald. Ladies: Sally Ni­chol­son, Bel­lochan­tuy; Diana Macken­zie, Sad­dell.
