Boorowa Gun Club hosted 32 shooters at their monthly competition on Saturday the 26th of January.
While the very hot temperatures kept some away, the calm conditions presented a great opportunity for some excellent scores with three shooters painting the scoreboard in red. All three shot the program clean and had to go into a shoot off to decide the overall High Gun winner for the day.
The three tied on 150/150 were Fred Twarloh and Grady Evans both from Boorowa Gun Club and Matt Gerstenberg from Yass Clay Target Club. Fred Twarloh finally edged out the other two shooters to come out on top at the end of the day.
The Veterans High Gun was won by Jeff Nash with a 148/150 for the day. The Ladies High Gun was won by Sharon McDonald with a 143/150 and the Junior High Gun was won by Blake Gruber with a 141/150.
The new clubhouse proved a very welcome refuge from the January sun and as usual fantastic food was available including bacon and egg rolls, BBQ lunch and afternoon tea. Many thanks to Sandra Murphy for braving the heat and looking after everyone so well.
