Griffith Sporting Clays staged a very successful NSW Sporting Clays State Titles at their Dave Wallace Range recently when more than 90 of Australia’s best sporting clay shooters from around NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland attended to compete.
The range is situated atop a rocky hill with cliffs on one side and is unique in Australia, presenting challenging targets to visiting competitors who are only used to shooting on flat areas. Traps were set to throw clay targets from all angles and speeds in the bushland but also down and along cliff faces and off towers.
The 200 target event comprised the NSW Sporting Clays State Titles in conjunction with the Dave Wallace Memorial Shoot. Wallace was originally responsible for the establishment of the sporting clays range. More than $12,000 in prizes were on offer including eight .17 calibre rimfire rifles for the grade winners.
Local shooter Simon Gee was able to snag himself a .17 rifle for winning “B” Grade and shooting consistently all weekend (200 targets). Jan and Casey Jacka fought a battle all weekend and ended up equal third each day and over all. Mikayla Macartney also was in the prizes for both days and overall.
Shooters now look forward the competing at the SSAA National Sporting Clay Titles to be held in Shepparton on 20th & 21st September.
