Interclub Challenge alive and well after Cooma Gun Club win

Sunday saw the second leg of the Interclub challenge run between the Cooma Gun Club and the Cooma Field and Game. The event is in its Third year and is proving popular amongst the shooters of both clubs. Initiated to boost numbers attending the clubs August shoots it is paying dividends with 36 shooters at Cooma Gun Club two Sundays ago and 54 shooters at Middling Bank last Sunday.  

The competition is fiercely contested with clubs usually making the most of home ground advantages to win each of the respective days. This year the field and Game shooters gave the Cooma gun club too much lead in the first leg and were unable to make up the deficit with Cooma Gun Club winning overall by 44 targets.

Both days were a huge success. It provides shooters from different affiliations to get out and try something new. Good for the clubs and good for the shooters, there should be more of it.
