Woods Point Gun Club shooters brave snowy conditions


WINTER BLAST: Clay target shooter Phillip Desmond had trouble seeing the clay from the snow flakes during the Woods Point shoot on the weekend.

IT was cold, cold, cold and snowy for the Matlock Championships at the Woods Point Gun Club July competition.

But the conditions didn’t stop Trevor Ewert from winning the Double Rise Eye Opener outright.

Shooting conditions were fair but at times falling snow made the targets difficult to see.

The first of the championships, sponsored by the Stewart Bus Company, was a 15 pair Double Rise, two targets thrown simultaneously, only two shots allowed.

Phillip Desmond put together the best score of 20/30 to take the sash and the AA grade prize ahead of Trevor Ewert 15/30.

In A Grade Daryl Ewert’s 17/30 was enough for the win followed by Tom Apps.
