On Sunday November 11, the Goulburn Clay Target Club Inc. held its inaugural Allen Cramp and Clem Rowe Memorial Shoot.
Held at the club’s premises at 28 Long Street, 114 of the best shooters from all over the state turned up to battle it out for a bite at the top prize money on offer.
The monster raffle was organized by the club, with all of the available prizes having been kindly donated by local businesses.
A wheelbarrow overflowed with all sorts of cool prizes, and a Sydney shooter by the name of Troy was the lucky winner.
With the BBQ grilling in the background and a slight afternoon breeze picking up, the Goulburn Club’s men and ladies battled throughout the day for a chance to claim the much-sought-after local title.
However, no one stood a chance against Yass ‘AA’ shooter Matthew Patmore, who shot a nailbiting 150/150 to take home the title among a strong field of competitors.
The ideal 26-degree day still brought out great scores all round from ‘C’ Grade to ‘AA’ Grade and everything in between.
- HIGH GUN – Matt Patmore
- AA High Gun – Steve Caltabiano
- A High Gun – Manual Gomes
- B High Gun – Gary Rootes
- C High Gun – Mark James
- LADIES – Piper Michie
- JUNIOR – Darcy Maloney
- VETERANS Combined – Fred Twarloh and Don McMillan
Goulburn Clay Target Club Inc. would like to congratulate all winners and thank all shooters, especially those who travelled, to compete in the shoot and contribute to the success of the day.
The club also thanked its major sponsor, the Goulburn RSL Club, and all other sponsors who were involved in allowing the Memorial Shoot to be held so successfully.
The club hopes to see everybody return next year for the competition’s second edition.
The Goulburn Clay Target Club wishes to remind its patrons and all interested members of the public that it holds practice every third Tuesday of the month and competitions are held every second Sunday.
All are welcome to come and see this unique and exciting sport in action.
The club has since competed in shoots at Boorowa, Yass, and Forest.
