Nippy Breeze At Cowra Gun Club
It was very pleasing to be able to welcome 37 shooters to the Club on Saturday 7 May for the monthly competition. The breeze kept things pretty cool but the afternoon was enjoyed by all who came along.
The program of events featured the memorial championships & handicap named in honour of hard-working members who have since left us. The Noel Dwight 25 target Memorial Pointscore Championship was won by Daniel Berry from Parkes on 90/90. Local Cowra shooters to perform well included Tony O’Leary who won AA grade with 86/87, Richard Johnstone took out A grade 89/90 and second in B grade was another club stalwart in Malcolm Drury 77/81. Well done to all.
The second event was the Dick Toshack 75 target Memorial Champion of Champions which comprises of three disciplines – double barrel, single barrel and pointscore. The eventual winner was Tony O’Leary with the outstanding score of 123/125. Considering the changing light conditions, this score was a great achievement.
Our final event for the day was the Mick Sinclair 25 target Memorial Handicap and this was won by Thomas Sheridan 25/25 – the only competitor to shoot all targets cleanly. Pat Dun came second in the event after a shootoff with Daniel Berry.
Congratulations must go to Daniel Berry who was in very hot form winning the Overall High Gun for the afternoon with a grand total of 218/225!! Excellent shooting against a strong field, Daniel!!
Our next competition on 4 June will feature the Central Tablelands Double Rise championship. We hope to see quite a few here to vie for this prestigious title.
