Local shooters on target
The event, sponsored by long-serving life member Geoff Pringle and his wife Sue, attracted shooters from Yamba, Grafton, Gold Coast, Kingaroy and Brisbane clay target clubs.
Four 25-target stages were contested on a fine, warm day with light winds.
Although no-one recorded the coveted 100/100, stage possibles of 25/25 were shot by Phil Westbury (two), Greg Smith (two), Kevin Harding (two), Mike Sullivan, Mark Formaggin, Ted Schneider, Tony O'Leary, Jim Cornwell, Jeff Lowndes, Russ Wesslink and Rebecca Vary.
Greg Smith (Gold Coast) shot consistently with scores of 25, 24, 24 and 25 (98/100) to win B-grade and overall High Gun.
After solid performances at the Australian national titles held at Wagga and the Queensland State titles at Emerald recently, Rebecca Vary (Richmond River) recorded her first 25/25 in the first stage and followed up with 21, 22 and 24 (92/100).
Vary was well on her way to a second 25 straight by shooting 22/22 in a shoot-off for third place in B-grade.
