Boorowa Gun Club hosted 25 shooters at their monthly competition on Saturday 23 February. Quite a windy day made the first event the 25 Target Handicap challenging, especially for the back markers. There was no red on the board for the Handicap so the two shooters on 24 points, Fred Twarloh from Boorowa and Darcy Maloney from Majura Park Gun Club went in to a shoot off to determine the overall winner with Darcy coming out on top and earning himself a metre next time he shoots the Handicap. Fred had to be content with second place. Third place also had to be determined by a shoot off between Laurie Shaw, Dempsey Farrel Gray and Eddie Cummings with Laurie winning the shoot off and taking third place.
The second event of the day was the 75 Target Medley which comprised a 25 targets double barrel, 25 target single barrel and 25 targets point score. The wind was up and some coped better than others. Tony O’Leary from Cowra took out the overall win with an impressive 124/125.
AA was won by Darcy Maloney with a 123/125, second in AA was Ben Murphy with 119/125. A grade was won by Mat Harris with 117/125 and second was Rex Murphy on 116/125. B grade was won by David Constable with 115/125 and second place was Kruno Luketic on 114/125. C grade was won by Dempsey Farrel Gray after a shoot off against Laurie Shaw.
