Mervyn springs clay surprise

CONDITIONS could only be described as autumn perfect for the monthly shoot of the Grafton Clay Target Club.

Six squads of members and visitors attended and with the perfect conditions many good scores prevailed, with everyone thoroughly enjoying themselves.

Main event was the Club Pointscore Championship. Mervyn Sweeny was in the area from Alice Springs and decided to try out the coastal hospitality.

Mervyn reckons our targets are perfect and only pulled two second barrels in the 50-target event to take the sash home to Central Australia with a score 148/150.

To show that was no fluke, Mervyn was placed in every event and also took home the High Gun Tankard with a score for the day of 196/200. Needless to add Mervyn vowed he would certainly be back to accept more of the Grafton weather and hospitality at some time in the future.

Hidden in the pointscore tally was the first perfect 25/25 double barrel for our junior Yvette Gulliver. Congratulations Yvette and we know this will be the beginning of many ‘perfect’ scores.

Next month will be another big one for our club as we conduct our two-day June Open Classic on both the Saturday and Sunday of the long weekend (June 12-13) with a 9.30am start each day. Following on from our successful Northern Zone Carnival, this weekend should be really good.

Visitors are always welcome at these monthly shoots. Please remember that if you wish to talk to an accredited Firearms Safety and Training Officer then visit our club on the second Sunday of any month.
