REPORT: 2015 Universal Trench World Championships

On the weekend of the 15th of August a large contingent of Aussies made their way to Granada, Spain to compete in the 33rd World Universal Trench Championships held at the Las Gabias Shooting Range August 21-23.

Making the long trek was our senior team of Nathan Cassells, Steve Trembath & Craig Henwood, our ladies team of Anna Shedrina & Amanda Holt and our junior team of Adam Shale (with his sister Demi), Brody Walters (and mum Mikala) and Jackson Willmann (with parents Scott & Sonia and brother Bryce).

Also travelling with the team were the following shooters competing as individuals; Ross Liersch, Marcus Cassells, Vinnie Mollica (with father Vince Snr) & Lachlan Holdsworth (with mum Jenny). This ensured a big crew and a large Australian presence felt at the championships.

4 ISSF Trap, 8 DTL and 3 Skeet squads participate in the planned program.  Welcome to our many visitors who joined us for the day and to those who came for their first competition in any of the disciplines, we hoped you enjoyed yourself and will return to compete again.  Great to have the “Skeeties” back in competition mode and thanks also to Jeff Tonna for completing the ISSF program when Craig Henwood had to rush away to watch his beloved Richmond team lose to Freemantle in the last minutes of the game.  Never mind Craig, always next week and possibly the same result!
