October's Big Weekend

 Shoot report October


It was a big weekend at the Cooma Field and game with action on both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday was the second running of “Come and have a go day” which went off without a hitch. 30 new and beginner shooters shot a mixed bag of targets spread out over 6 stands. It was a casual day and all who attended seemed to enjoy themselves, with everybody hitting targets throughout the day.

The clubs October monthly shoot was on Sunday. The event was sponsored by South East tile and bathroom and saw an excellent turn out of shooters with 58 attending. The set up crew really went out on a limb, setting up the whole range at the furthest point from the club house. So as not to wear out the shooters, it was decided to set up temporary facilities at the end of the range as well. This involved organizing the office, score boards, kitchen, and rest areas. A big effort and thanks to all who contributed.

The result was worth the effort with a picnics atmosphere to the day with stands close together squads could discuss the pros and cons of a good competitive days shooting. 

Bill Warriner continued his good form taking out High Gun. Bermagui once again did more than their fair share supporting the day by taking home plenty of placings across all grades.
