Dean cleans up on shoot­ing range

The Riverine Herald - - SPORT -

ECHUCA Moama Field and Games Au­gust shoot was held on Sun­day, Au­gust 19.

A to­tal of 75 shoot­ers came to test their skills on Glen Moun­seys’ course of 25 tar­gets, with shoot­ers com­plet­ing three rounds of the course over the day to make up the 75 tar­gets re­quired.

The tar­gets did not dis­ap­point with four shoot­ers man­ag­ing to shoot a per­fect round of 25 tar­gets each dur­ing the day.

Nathan Stuch­bree and Nick Dean cleaned up in round two for the day, with Steve Nor­ris and Ja­son Smith both shoot­ing theirs in round three.

High gun for the day went to lo­cal shooter Nick Dean, who along with his 25 also shot a 24 then a 22 to win with a score of 71 out of 75.

At the con­clu­sion of the days shoot­ing pres­i­dent Ricky Keirl had the hon­our of pre­sent­ing two of our mem­bers with life mem­ber­ships.

John Thomp­son and Kevin Crisp are both hard work­ing mem­bers of Echuca Moama Field and Game, and both joined field and fame in Jan­uary 1990.

There is an in­cred­i­bly long list of the many jobs and ex­ec­u­tive po­si­tions the two have been a part of over the last 28 years.

The two have set many cour­ses for monthly shoots, and are al­ways happy to put their hands up when vol­un­teers are needed.

There isn’t an inch of con­crete around the club that Thommo hasn’t laid, and Kevin is be­hind all of the elec­tri­cal work that keeps the club run­ning smoothly.

The week­end af­ter our shoot the lo­cal Army Cadet unit had their an­nual camp out at the ground.

Around 40 cadets stayed at the club giv­ing them the op­por­tu­nity to use their knowl­edge and skills, and to put them to use while set­ting up camp, stay­ing out overnight, and nav­i­gat­ing their way around the bush.

Echuca Moama Field and Game’s next shoot will be held this Sun­day.

This will be a 75-tar­get event be­gin­ning at 10am, and is gen­er­ously spon­sored by Echuca Fur­ni­ture Stores.
