21st March 2009
willing and eager participants signed up for what was considered by all a most enjoyable day at the first “Local Olympics”
at the CMT Clay Target Club.
day began with a chat regarding safety and protocol before progressing onto the layout, where 12 teams of 3 shooters shot
2 rounds of 15 targets. The shooters at all times had a trained member beside them who coached them each step of the way.
days end team ‘Hit ‘n Miss’ (Michael Walker, Kerrin Batchelor, Dan Carter) clearly had more hits than misses
and were obvious stand out Gold Medal winners on a score of 70 points. A shoot
off between two teams on 64 points was required for the Silver Medal and was won by team ‘Divers’ (Trevor, Ryan
& Callan Diver) over team ‘Kella Fellas’( Kyran Cox, Marc Bell, Brett Cox).
the day was such a success, it is intended to make the ‘Local Olympics’ an annual event.
now the knowledge of what can be improved upon, we expect it to be better next year and hope that this years medallists will
certainly return to defend their titles.
you to everyone who attended the day. It was great to see shooters of all ages including 3 father & son teams, a team
of students from the Ag College and one lady.
