Nation's finest shots coming to state titles
ABOUT 140 of the finest practical pistol shooters from all over Australia are about to converge on the Grafton Pistol Club next weekend for the NSW State Titles, hosted by the Grafton Pistol Club.
“This match forms part of the selection process for the National Titles in Darwin in May,” said match director and president of the Grafton Pistol Club Robert Tucker.
“It's taken us almost four months to get everything just right for this match. The venue here is first-class, widely recognised as the number one country range in Australia.
“With the seven ranges set up with 14 totally unique scenarios, the standard will be extremely demanding.
“We have 140 competitors in seven squads, and look forward to a really challenging shoot.
“It looks as if the weather will be ideal - showing off Grafton at its very best.”
Competition starts at 8.30am on Saturday, and concludes mid-afternoon on Sunday, when the NSW State Title trophies will be presented.
“Visitors are more than welcome, free of charge, as long as they bring along hearing protection, sunglasses and a sunhat,” Tucker said..
“It's truly unique family entertainment. Members of the Club will be more than happy to explain what's going on.
“This match promises to be a fascinating and spectacular event rarely experienced in the country.”
The Grafton Pistol Club can be found at 30 Old Lilypool Road, Bom Bom.
From the South Grafton crossroads, travel South on the Pacific Highway.
Just past the Centenary Drive intersection, turn right into Lilypool Road then simply follow the signs.
