For the first time in over a year the GGC was open for shooting on Saturday. Guests and visitors were greeted by some very long grass and even longer targets. Or so it seemed after a year of not shooting. The turnout was great and a visiting team of shooters came from the Hermanus Gun Club, many for the first time.
The format for the day was 50 English Sporting re-entry and, in the end, best scores out of 100 were taken by the Chairman. Both the winner and the runner up were from Hermanus with Koos Smit on 55 and Saul Dos Santos on 51.
Of special note was the super mini challenge on the first stand of the blue course for which a bottle of wine was on the offer. This target was not for mortals, but wine in these times seems to have unlocked super natural powers with four of the first five detail members hitting it. Which was 180 degrees against the standard of shooting on the day. Xandre Groenewald, Andre Groenewald, Koos Smit and Hoffie Brand made easy work of it.
The next shoot will be held at the end of April and we will be shooting Sporting for a Fitasc Rules event with the best round on each discipline to count. Each range may be shot no more than twice. For more info contact Hubertus on 072 877 1106.
