Cooma Field and Game held its first two-
day shoot of the year with resounding
The weekend saw an excellent turn out
at the Cooma Field and Game range with
higher than expected shooter numbers
Saturday saw the clubs inaugural
running of “Bush Skeet” which
was essentially run under
American skeet rules but not in
open space as would traditionally
be the case.
The set up crew did an
excellent job making sure that the
two layouts were measured out to
a correct skeet pattern and that
the traps threw the clays at the
correct angles and speed.
The different surroundings
seemed to test even the most
experienced skeet shooters with
nobody scoring a perfect round.
The event was well attended
with 29 shooters taking up the
Elders Insurance Cooma was
the sponsor and their support
was very much appreciated by all

Sunday saw most shooters
return to a more main stream
competition with the ever popular
Compak format of sporting clays,
as the name would suggest a compact
version of traditional sporting clays.
Forty-eight shooters braved the
warmer conditions and were presented
with an excellent array of targets, again
the perfect round remained elusive,
although a few 24/25’s were shot.
The event was sponsored by Monbeef
and again the club thanks them for their
Results for Compak
