John wins Glenfiddich Challenge
THE Glendaruel and Colintraive Gun Club held the fourth Glenfiddich Challenge Trophy shoot recently.
Once again the club were pleased to welcome clay target shooters from all over the region to this beautifully sited premier ground on the Cowal circuit.
Continued good weather was no doubt a factor in attracting an excellent turn- out of 37 guns. Such a large field confirms the popularity of this competition, now moved in the calendar from November to June.
There was a tie for first place on 146 points between John Gilchrist, Campbeltown, and Stewart MacNeill, East Kilbride. After a shoot off, the Glenfiddich Challenge Trophy went to John.
Third place was also a tie on 143, between Gordon Griffiths, Garelochhead, and Alan Brown, Rothesay. Fourth and fifth places were taken by Paul Chalmers, Cairndow, and David Milton, Dumbarton, with 140 and 139 points respectively.
Best junior and the Glendaruel Challenge Cup for the highest score by a club member, went to Archie McBride with 137 points.
Stewart MacNeil continued an excellent day’s shooting by winning the Pool Trap Competition.
The club were extremely grateful to Messrs William Grant and Sons, represented by Anna Morrison, who sponsored the shoot and provided presentation bottles of Glenfiddich to the winners.
