AT the Woods Point Gun Club on Sunday competitors for the Howqua Championships faced a difficult day of shooting.

The weather was cold and clear but the light was poor.

The club is located in a valley surrounded by mountains and tall timber which means that at the mid-year shoots, the shadows over the ground make the targets extremely difficult to see.

All this made for a challenging shoot, as can be seen by the final scores.

However, this didn’t stop Trevor Ewert and Phillip Desmond from shooting perfect 15/15 scores in the Eye Opener.

The first championship was 25 targets Double Barrel supported by long term sponsor, Scott McKenzie of Jamieson River Autos.
