On the last Saturday of January members and friends of the Greyton Gun Club gathered for the first event of this year. Shooting at this time of the year can be a little hit and miss at this time of the year when it comes to the weather. Greyton January and February’s are notorious for well above 35C sometimes. Well luckily not this time with day time temperatures peaking on the right side of 30C.
The competition this month consisted of one round of sporting and one round of Trap for a combined out of 50. Douglas Legg took the day with a very competent 45/50 followed by visitor John Preece from the UK. John travels each year making his home in the Overberg over the summer months and traveling to the shoots of the Overberg.
This year shooting sees a slight difference in pricing with the cost of shooting remaining at R50.00 per details however a R100.00 green fee in force of CTSASA registered club members and a R250.00 range fee for non-member visitors.
