Gath­er­ing guns

The North West Zone School Shoot held at the Bar­rook Field & Game ground at Barham is one of the best-pa­tro­n­ised school shoots on the cal­en­dar.

Field and Game - - SCHOOL SHOOTS -

On the Mon­day fol­low­ing the open­ing week­end of the Vic­to­rian Duck Sea­son, 77 stu­dents from Gee­long, Wed­der­burn, Mary­bor­ough, Echuca, Moama, Kerang, Co­huna, Swan Hill, Mil­dura, Barham, De­niliquin and Bal­ranald at­tended — all keen for a day’s shoot­ing.

Again, the weather was per­fect, with a glo­ri­ous sunny day.

Once Shane, Mick and Norm had the stu­dents all nommed up, they com­menced the shoot — two rounds of 12 tar­gets per round.

A few shoot-offs were re­quired to de­ter­mine place get­ters. One of these be­ing High Gun Boys be­tween B. Beggs and A. Calleja.

Mas­sive thank you to ev­ery­one who lent a hand on the day or be­fore­hand from or­gan­is­ing the en­tries, run­ning the of­fice, cater­ing to all the hun­gry mouths, set­ting up and un­pack­ing the cour­ses, su­per­vis­ing the squads and to all the stu­dents who par­tic­i­pated, some trav­el­ling quite a dis­tance. A com­pli­ment I heard pass was how well be­haved the stu­dents were on the day.

Thank you.
