The AGM and general meeting held this year was a success. Most of the Committee are staying on for another year. Andrew Fairfield-Smith (President), Colin Brownlee (Vice.) & Adam Mower (Secretary).
Ken Jones, club treasurer has stepped aside to make way for Ian Armstrong to take up the treasurer’s position. This will allow Ken more time as the club’s development and shooting coach. Welcome to the team Ian.
Two new positions were taken up. Doug Alcock will now be Club Captain with Josh Pedersen Vice Captain, these positions will help with the smooth running of the monthly shoots.
The committee are looking forward to the year ahead and are keen to continue with the improvements to the club facilities and membership base seen over the last couple of years. Money has been approved to purchase two new traps and other funds have been allocated to upgrades to the club house and toilet block dependent on the success or otherwise of some pending grants.
For the moment the club name is to stay as is, dependent on whether the state body changes its name to assimilate with Sporting Clays Australia. This decision is to be discussed at the State AGM in September.
Congratulations to Glen Weston, Club member of the year and to Peter Reeve and Terry Thistleton who both received certificates of appreciation for their long standing service to the club.
Robin and Rhonda are remaining as shoot secretaries. Bill and Glen Simmons traps. Mark Corbett is passing the conservation officer baton to Josh Pederson.

The first leg of which (Down the line) will be held at their range in Berridale on Saturday the 13th at 9.30am, followed by our shoot the following Sunday. The competition is about getting more shooters to both clubs so looking forward to see a good turnout at Berridale.
