The Committee & Members welcomed many Interstate & local Guests to this weekend with 11 Squads competing in the 2 day event.

During the week, the aqua seeding of our grounds was commenced and along with some most welcome rain that fell, made for a great grass growing time.  Unfortunately the committee and members who assisted did not have time to sit back and watch it grow.  Busy, busy, busy was the order of the day with the Club hosting another successful Come & Try Day, Corporate Function and competition program.

Welcome back was extended to the 8 students from Hutchins College (Hobart) and their teachers who had attended the 'Yarra Valley School Boys / Girls Shoot' on Thursday and returned to compete in the DTL program.

The MGC Skeet Bonanza will be held on Saturday 30th April and Sunday 1st May 2016.  Click here for the Skeet Bonanza shoot program or see Paul Johnston for additional information.

  • New concrete lanes on ground 5
  • Club room floor leveled at toilet end and new carpet
