From PR Trev 20th August 2017 -

A busy month all round for both the club and our members and it is still ongoing.

Thirty-two shooters enjoyed our July competition and interestingly early in the day scores were a bit patchy and improved as the day went on. In the first event a 25 Target Points event both Cayce Arhtur, A Grade and Ivan Mapp, B Grade showed what they were capable of each with a 74/75 taking out a share of the spoils. Our AA shooters no doubt must have had a sleep in but in the second event Double Barrel out it all came with AA Greg Matthews 25, Kev Perkins AA, Tristan Anderson A 24, Martin Kroezen and Ivan Mapp 24s in B Grade and young Terry Milera found some form in C Grade with a 22. Now let's visit the 50 Target Points Championship where we see Kev Perkins take out AA 148/150. Greg in second place 145/150, A Grade Tristan 147/150 with Graham Rudd from Bundy second 136/150. IIn B well we have had a regrade here with young Gerry Chizotti on 129/150 and Ivan second with 127/150, C Grade kept Terry up with 133/150 and Mr Job chasing him to gain second spot. Visiting the High Guns both Greg and Kev shared the lollies 241250 Tristan also with a 241//250 in A Grade, B Grade Ivan 225/250 and a regrade to A (so he should be) and Terry consistent in C Grade. It certainly was a mixed day with some shooters scratching their heads a bit with their scores . Ho ho it will happen again eh.

A number of our members attended Bundy's Two Dayer with mixed results here too. Good numbers attended with scores fairly scrappy in some of the events. Gerry I believe shot well as did Greg. We also attended Gympie this month speaking with Malcolm who has found a hole of late as we all do started well and dropped a few in the Points which builds up your confidence no end and that fixed that. Our other shooters competitive enough over the day. Don't worry he is on the way back.

Between attending other clubs Ross arranged for soil top dressing and Steve arranged and organized to have grass laid on the front verge of the clubhouse.This was done on a Saturday and again on the Monday to finsh it off. A big thank you to all who helped do the honours and Steve it is very much appreciated. Thank you. Cost to us was a very fair indeed. Being well watered over this past two weeks we have dropped our tank level a bit even using the water in the concrete tanks, Zippy was able to arrange some more water through his boss. Thanks to Robbie. When at the club be a bit cautious if attempting to walk across the grass at present as it is being well watered in and will be a bit soggy. If you bog we will put some fertilizer around you and we'll water you in!

More work is planned in our kitchen with tiling compliments of George Christensen from Bundy club for supplying the tiles. Thank you George it is much appreciated.

A good program for this month with Double Barrel Cash, Single Barrel, Handicap 1-2-3 and Continental. Now Giulio has returned from Italy where he shot a bit of trench so the Continental this month is for you now that you have your eye in!
DON'T FORGET Lyn needs a hand in the Canteen; pleasebring something for arvo tea it all helps. Thanks too to Cayce's Grandmother for helping last month in the canteen too and his Mum who is pretty good selling the raffle for us. Thank you to both. Better not forget Grandad too as he and the family collect all of our clays we miss each Sunday which is beaut as we use these for practice.
Saturday arvo we need assistance with loading the traps and general tidy and clean up of the clubhouse and its amenities for Sunday with a practice session to follow. Setting up the layouts Sunday morning 8am and a General meeting to follow at 9am before competition at 10.30am.
All being good with a good report this week from the Specialist I hope to pull a trigger as well.

I look forward to seeing all on Sunday.
Good shooting to all. Trev C..

Australia's 40 Top Shooters

The Honour Board at Echuca

Neil Berry

Warren Charlton

Barry Kable


Neil and Wilma Berry attended a Three-day shoot at Echuca at the beginning of December and on December 4th attended a function for the unveiling of the Honour Board listing Australia's Top Shooters. Three Top Shooters were asked to give a speech on "shooting in their time" and the people they shot against
. The three were Neil Berry, Warren Charlton, who has the undeniably impressive honour of being the only Australian shooter to have won all the National DTL titles and Barry Kable, who was inducted into the National Hall of Fame on the same night as Neil.
The reason for the Honour Board is that Mark McGuiness, one of the historians, is worried that newer shooters won't know anything about the older ones and wants to make sure they are not forgotten.
The Honour Board is at the Echuca gun club in Victoria and will be updated as other shooters reach the requirements to be a "Top Shooter"

We sincerely thank Wilma Berry for the story and photos.

We are certainly honoured to have two Maryborough shooters in the "Top 40 Shooters", as you can see in the photo of the Honour Board above - Neil Berry (1985) and Kev Perkins (1991) have a right to be very proud of their achievements and we congratulate them.
