Seven full squads of shooters competed at Echuca Clay Target Club’s annual Christmas shoot on Sunday last week.

The program consisted of three novelty events, which seemed to test the advanced shooters more than the lower grades, as well as the champion of champions.

It is a mixed target event which is open for everyone to compete in, but the overall winner must have won at least one championship at Echuca throughout the year.

Local member Steve Atkins (pictured), proved his shooting ability by being the overall winner an excellent score of 58/60.

All events on the day had four grades, with all grades going down to fifth place and with the club policy of no shooter receiving the same trophy, the prizes were well distributed around a lot of competitors.

The club thanked Dot Roberts, Heather Bradley, Helen Atkins and their helpers.

All shooters had a lot of fun shooting the novelty events, while club president Ron Traill thanked everyone and wished all a good shooting year for 2013.
