Open shoot at Glen­daruel

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

SATUR­DAY Au­gust 15 was des­tined to be one of those days when the rain was not go­ing to re­lent. The com­bi­na­tion of a new fix­ture in the club’s cal­en­dar, and poor con­di­tions, nar­rowed the field to 18 se­niors and two juniors.

Two side com­pe­ti­tions were also avail­able; the usual pool trap and a re­stricted five-gun 15 tar­get shoot se­lec­tion by ref­er­ence to the scores in the Tro­phy com­pe­ti­tion.

The MacAvis­ton Tro­phy was won by Derek Street, Glen­daruel, with an out­stand­ing score of 149 ex 150.

All the 50 tar­gets were hit; the sin­gle point lost was due to the use of the sec­ond bar­rel on one tar­get.

Derek is com­pet­ing in the se­lec­tion tri­als for the Scot­tish Na­tional team this week, and all wish him ev­ery suc­cess. Sec­ond place with a score of 145 went to ju­nior Archie McBride, Glen­daruel.

Archie will loose his ju­nior el­i­gi­bil­ity shortly and it has been in­ter­est­ing to watch his pro­gres­sion over the years into the fine shot he now is. Third place was taken by Don­nie McPhail, Glen­daruel, on 139 points.

There was a tie for fourth place be­tween Ron­ald Robert- son, Bute, and Alan Brown, Bute with 138 points.

Ron­ald Robert­son won the Pool Trap, and the Safety Car Com­pe­ti­tion spon­sored by Ar­gyll Fire Safety Con­sul­tants was won with a max­i­mum score of 45 points, by Alan Brown, Bute.

Grate­ful thanks are ex­tended to Anne McPhail for her ex­cel­lent cater­ing. The club also wishes to thank all those who do­nated items for the cater­ing and prizes for the raf­fle and as­sisted with the run­ning of the shoot.
