Shooters will travel from across NSW for the Sporting Clays competition at the Taree Wingham Clay Target Club on Sunday, October 15.

More than 40 competitors are expected to take to the range with entrants coming from the Manning, Hunter and Lismore areas. 

A variety of target presentations will give competitors different heights and angles to work with. 

Club secretary Phil Baker tipped Craig Dargan to be a strong competitor on the day following a successful outing at a competition in Gunnedah.

“He’s one of the hot shots to win this weekend,” he said. 

The event was originally slated for October 8 but was postponed due to conflicts with other clay shooting events. Cost for the competition is $45 with prizes up for grabs per grade. For non-competitive shooters, the cost of targets only will be $10 per round.

Grades will be determined on two random rounds. 

A light barbecue lunch will be available as well as drinks.

Bronzewing Ammunition will be available on the day.

Competition will commence at 11am.
