Woods Point Gun Club February competition
A BEAUTIFUL sunny day saw fitting conditions to hold the Jack Scott Memorial shoot, where the Woods Point Gun Club and the Scott family celebrate the
memory of Jack, one of the founding members of the club.
It was also the day for the first of the two Woods Poi n t / Mansfiel d team shoots for the year.
The Eye Opener saw Phillip Desmond and Trevor Ewert off to a good start with perfect 30/30 scores and a handy cash prize each.
The main event was the 50 target Double Barrel Jack Scott Memorial Trophy, sponsored by the Scott family, that saw no perfect 50/50.
Was it nerves or too much sunshine?
Tom Apps, Phillip Desmond and B Jones scored 49/50 to enter the shoot off for the trophy.
Surprisingly after only two rounds, Apps and Jones both missed their second target leaving Desmond to claim the trophy, 51/52.
The only other shoot off was for second in B grade and that lasted only three targets with Richard Brown beating Daryl Ewert 49/53 to 48/53.
The g r a d e winners were:
AA winner Desmond 51/ 52, runner up Jones 50/52.
A grade saw a win for Apps 49/50 with Ian Findlay second, 48/50.
B grade was won outright by ‘The Hoon’, 48/50 with Brown second, 49/53, MEMORIAL WINNERS: (From left) Jake Murray, Phillip Desmond, ‘The Hoon’, Garry Ewert, Richard Brown, Tom Apps, John Wood, and Scott family members, Fiona, Carol, Scott and at front Frances and Lisa.

Garry Ewert managed a C grade win, 45/50, with Daniel Poile second 45/50.
The winner of the Jack Scott Junior Trophy was Jake Murray with an excel- lent 45/50.
The 20 target Jack Scott Handicap Championship, sponsored by Don, Ann, Eddy and Roz Woods was next with a surprising result.
President John Wood actually shot 20/20 to his complete amazement, with Richard Brown in the same squad following suit.
All the favored competitors were so shocked that they forgot to hit all of their own targets leaving Wood and Brown to shoot off for the sash.
After eight targets ‘El Presidente’ had his first sash for 2014, 28/28, with Brown second, 27/28.
Daryl Ewert’s 19/ 20 gained him the third place prize while Garry Ewert beat R Brill and Peter West to take fourth, 20/22.
Junior Jake Murray’s 17/20 was a good effort for his first shoot at Woods Point’s difficult targets.
The 20 target Jack Scott Tower Championship, sponsored by Tom and Cheryl Apps, finalised the day’s celebrations.
Daryl Ewert, Richard Brown and Ian Findlay went into a shoot off after scoring perfect 20/20 scores.
After 12 targets Brown was the proud sash winner, 32/32, with Findlay second, 30/32.
Ewert took third place 29/30 while ‘The Hoon’ beat Murray and Garry Ewert in another shoot off for fourth place 20/21.
The overall High Gun sponsored by t he Scott family was won by Richard Brown 86/90.
Woods Point had a resounding win in the team event, 77/80 to Mansfield’s 66/80.
A great day to celebrate Jack’s memory, a good attendance, good results, good tucker and a whole lot of fun - thank you all.
The next shoot at the Point is on Sunday, March 23, and includes the 75 target Buckle shoot with a mounted US 1800s Silver Dollar as the main trophy.
See you there.
