President’s Shield Yarra Valley Pistol Club

ACA Vic had 20 members shooting at this year’s shoot

and ASASA had 3, but unfortunately their 3 members

managed an average score better than the average from

our 14 shooters. That’s the way the cookie crumbles.

Sunday, 15th October. The weather for the day was

superb, the sun was shining and the birds were singing,

no doubt knowing that they were not being aimed at.

The Yarra Valley Pistol Club has had an injection of well

over a million dollars into the Club and it showed, what

with new pathways, upgraded ranges, and generally a

makeover to make it one of the best, if not the best club

in Victoria. It’s a credit to its committee.

Keith Hughes was responsible for the day’s shoot as

well as the scoring. It was good to see a few young ones

experiencing a shoot for the first time, and obviously

enjoying it. The instruction was as usual, excellent, and

the hospitality shown to us by the Club’s members was

warm and friendly.

Hope to see more ACA Vic Marksman to win back the

shield for us next year.
