FAVORABLE conditions greeted the competitors at the Woods Point Gun Club’s Maori Creek Clay Target Championships.

A varied day of competition started with shooters lining up for the Eye Opener event, allowing the cobwebs to be cleaned from the barrels before the championship events started.
Trevor Ewert shot the only perfect score of 15/15 to win quite a handy cash prize.

The first championship was 20 targets Double Barrel Continental, comprising 20 clay targets with only two shots allowed for each target.  

Targets were thrown in a random arc from side to side and oscillated from low to high at the same time, tricky but fun.

Trevor Ewert, John Wood and Phillip Desmond managed to return 20/20 scores to go into a shoot off for the championship sash.
