The Oban Times - - Sport -

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.
