REPORT: 2015 Victorian State Skeet Carnival

There were a few things that were noticed when the shooters started arriving on the 29th of January at Melbourne Gun Club for the commencement of the 2015 Victorian State Skeet Carnival.

Firstly, the grounds, as always, were immaculately presented.

Secondly, MGC had become home to a band of travelers, with tents and caravans littering the grounds housing skeet family from all over Australia.

Thirdly, although summer was in full swing, the weather was less than favourable, with strong winds playing havoc with the targets and a chill in the air.  Despite the gusty conditions though, 107 of the country’s best shooters visited one of Victoria’s premier gun clubs and were excited to get proceeding underway.

CLUB RESULTS: 14/02/2015

All Roger wanted was rain to help refresh the grounds and have them back to their green state.  Even went to the lengths of a little rain dance to help the situation.  Well it rained and it rained and it rained a lot more!  But why Saturday morning when we needed the sun to shine?

Corporate Shoot and Come & Try guests were able to to participate and had a very enjoyable time despite the wet conditions.  3 Universal Trench and 5 DTL squads then endured hot and very humid afternoon.

Our 'Skeeties' had a practice time instead of competition and the Club wishes all our members who are off to the SA Skeet Titles the very best of luck to you all (the webmaster is as well so there is no excuse why we will not have a report and photos on your success posted on the website).

Added to the mix, was hot and humid weather as well.  BUT GUESS WHAT - it will happen all again next Saturday but also adding a Universal Trench Competition to the program!
