Six squads of shooters turned out on October 15 in near-perfect conditions at the Yass Clay Target Club (YCTC) October competition.

It was good to see a number of travelling shooters mix it up with the locals in all of the scheduled events.

Some terrific scores were shot across the board in all events.

It was great to see C Grade shooters Lynne Green and Mark Vickery claim grade prizes.

Green and Vickery have been posting steadily increasing numbers over recent competitions with their efforts on October 15 continuing that trend. Well done.

Several shoot-offs were required to sort out the placings, including three shooters – Glenn Barton, Dave Turner and Wendy Barton – all contesting the High Gun prize.

Even Gary King chimed in for some shoot-off action in the handicap to claim a well-deserved third placing.

September event

In perfect spring weather, the YCTC raised $800 for Remount at the Charity Competition in September.

Ben Maquire, the founder of Remount graciously accepted the donation and provided all of those at the club with an insight into the astonishing work that Remount does.

Remount is a not-for- profit organisation delivering horsemanship programs for current and former service men and women and their families, who may have experienced stress relating to their service, post-traumatic stress disorder and/or physical injury.

The program includes accommodation, catering and tuition, with the aim to assist those who have served to get ‘back in the saddle’ and reconnect through horsemanship.

Congratulations goes to Glenn Barton from YCTC, who won the competition, after a short shoot-off with visiting Goulburn youngster Cooper Mooney.
