Osbourne National Sporting Clays Champion – 2013

Sporting Clays Nationals 2013 135SSAA (Hay) Branch Inc. held the 2013 National Sporting Clays Championships on the weekend which was a great success and enjoyed by all.

Doug Osbourne from Naradhan is the National Champion with a score of 165/200.  The weekend was quite windy which made for some challenging targets.

Two ranges were set, with a great variety of targets incorporating the 50 & 100ft towers. All targets were visible but the windy conditions made them a challenge.    Visitors came
from Kyabram, Griffith, Bathurst, Bateau Bay, Erina (Gosford area), Albury,
Tangambalanga (Vic), Wodonga, Temora, Naradhan, Lake Cargelligo, Leeton,
Cobram, Barham, Cohuna, Forbes, Deniliquin, Shepparton, Nathalia, Melton,

Shooters enjoyed country hospitality of a 2 course dinner at the range followed by a fantastic fireworks display by Anthony Slattery.
