Brooke is best
Ladies National Champion Brooke Tangey said her win was proof that persistence pays off in the end.
After numerous attempts and a string of minor placings, Brooke Tangey finally won her first national championship at Wodonga-albury. “I’m very happy with the outcome,” she said. “Next year will be 20 years that I’ve been shooting; you are always learning and finally you get to where you want to be.” Brooke had high praise for the event but admitted 100 targets left her tired at the end of the first day. “It was really good, it was great to have a ground like that with the space for six grounds,” she said. “All the grounds had a mixture of targets: the easy soft ones you expect to hit and the difficult ones you never think you can hit but are very excited when you do.” “There were no two targets that were exactly the same, and shooting targets below you is always good; there’s not a lot of clubs that can do that.” A member of Moe Field & Game, Brooke is looking forward to 2018. “I shoot Bairnsdale once or twice a year so I’m familiar with it,” she said. It also means if Brooke defends her title she won’t have to miss the presentation to start the long drive home.
“The event was a major success and six grounds is certainly the most effective and efficient way to host a national carnival” Brook Nichol, Pinegrove FGA
“I didn’t hear one complaint, I thought it was a tough shoot but a fair shoot and it shows the branches how targets should be thrown at big events.” Robert Hall, 2016 National Champion
