Cooma field and Game had an excellent day on Sunday with 60 shooters turning out for “Ladies Day” The weather was well suited to shooting although some of the crew started to wilt a little in the afternoon heat. The set up crews had worked tireless the day before to set up two ranges which provided a variety of targets from rabbits to high flying ducks.
Phil Craig started the day exceptionally well with a clean 25 on B range which debatably was the harder of the two ranges. This was not however enough to take out high gun in the handicap score event with new shooter and recently acquired club member winning out over all.
