FORTY shooters enjoyed a “Mario’s Pairs” round for the Bermagui Field and Game shoot recently.
Sponsored by club stalwarts Mario and Barbie Magrin, the course was set out in a different way to other meets.
Mario and Barbie arranged targets in pairs, which organisers said really tests the shooters.
The overall high gun for the meet was Gav Moulding, who scored a solid 99/112.
The win prompted club spokesman Nev Brady to declare Moulding “the club’s best shooter by far”.
Brady said the majority of grades were shot within expected margins, but a few “burglers showed their true colours”, with some shooters hitting above their grade on the day.
A large contingent of junior shooters also took part and enjoyed some strong competition.
Mark Raabe won the raffle, but missed the final target to miss out on the $500 prize.
Meanwhile Adam Mower and Phil Body shot well enough to win an oyster tray.
The club’s June shoot will be sponsored by Bermagui Bait and Tackle and the club hopes to see solid entries.
Mario’s pairs results:
AA/A grade - first Mark Gscwhend, second Nev Brady and third Richard Seaars.
B grade - first Adam Sheils, second Mark Raabe and third Jimmy Drakos.
C grade - first Daryl Newman, second Tony Crome, third Phil Body and fourth Jarrod Ringland.
Ladies winner was Jamie Negus.
Juniors - first Grace Gcshwend, second Oscar Mower, third Hollie Gcswhend and fourth James Body.
