Gun club hosts state titles

Young competitor Lachie Peacock with
club president Ray Williams. 
THE Derwent Valley Field and Game Club enjoyed good weather when it hosted the Tasmanian State Championships on September 15 at its lovely grounds situated near Boyer just out of New Norfolk alongside the Derwent River. The event was made possible thanks to the hard-working committee members as well as the great sponsorship received from Tasmanian Energy Brokers, Hutchinson Builders, Rio Oceania Pty Ltd and the New Norfolk Gunshop.

Club president Ray Williams paid tribute to all who contributed to the success of the event, notably Keith Howells, Roger Manton, Ron Moses and Barbara, Michael White, Alex Eiszele, Malcolm Little, Tom Jenkins, Adrian Hepburn and Graeme Jarvis. "They areall very special people that made this such an enjoyable championship event," Ray said.

More information about the club is available at and visitors are always welcome to attend on the third Sunday of each month. A practice shoot can also be arranged on most other weekends by prior arrangement.
