COOMA FIELD & GAME
On Sunday 21st December, we had 80 shooters compete at the Cooma Field & Game Christmas clay target shoot at the Middlingbank range. This annual shoot consists of numerous events that are included in the 75 targets.The Christmas event is the last for the year and our Club Champions are awarded at this time.
Bill Warriner was awarded Cooma Under & Over Club Champion for 2014. The Side by Side Club Champion for 2014 was Mark Corbett.
The shoot also includes a trophy and sash for the winner of the side by side “Springing Teal” section. The “Springing Teal” is a target that is sent almost vertically into the air and the shooter who hits the most of these during the shoot is declared the “Springing Teal” Champion. This year, the event was won by Trevor Heise with a score of 27/27.
A novelty “Turner Teams” tower shoot is conducted at the conclusion of the shoot day and this was won by Krista Mower and Phil Craig scoring 19/20.
This year we recognised the hard work done by our former club Presidents, Richard Mould and Richard Seears. Glen Simmons was awarded the club person of the year.
A special thanks to the Nassar family, who Cooked Christmas lunch and to the members who provided the salads and desserts for the day and a special thanks to Robin Perkins and Rhonda White for running the office throughout the year. It was also an opportunity to show off the improvements and works done to the facilities at the club throughout the year by the new committee.
We also held a brief silence to mark the passing of David Cook, a Bermagui member and valued supporter of the Cooma club, he will be missed.
We had shooters attend from Canberra, Victoria, Bermagui and Sydney as well as the locals.
