Bermagui Field and Game Club

FEBRUARY'S shoot was the Safari Firearms Springing Teal event. As in previous years, the shoot layout was organised by Darren and Jan Redman who with their group of helpers put together two courses, each comprising five shooting stations. Each station included a pair of springing teal targets which made up 40 of the 100 target event. 

Darren had introduced some new target trajectories to the event which added to the enjoyment of those shooters familiar with them, however less experienced novice shooters struggled as coaching is not permitted during competition and emphasised the point that the club really needs to have training days so that its new and novice shooters can receive correct instruction and not be disadvantaged.

Most shooters shot to their grade and local shooter Marion Magrin further consolidated his position within A Grade by winning third place. Mario has been putting some consistent scores together and it looks as though he has left the "Burgular" grade behind forever.

Juniors Grace and Holly Gschwend also put in consistent scores and were shooting some of the more difficult targets that caused trouble for others, having heeded previous expert guidance from their father Mark, who took out first place in A Grade. Shoot offs were required to determine placegetters in A, B and C grades.
