Woods Point Gun Club Fe­bru­ary com­pe­ti­tion

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By JOHN WOOD

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. (Jamie and Billy Scott at­tended but were cam­era shy.) af­ter his shoot off.

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.
