Narrabri Clay Target Club held its July monthly shoot on Sunday. It was the club’s first event since February and the introduction COVID-19 restrictions.

Conditions were ideal for shooting and travelling shooters were out and about, coming from Wee Waa, Tamworth, Moree, Goondiwindi, and Gunnedah for the day.

It was especially encouraging to see an increase in numbers for junior shooters and their enthusiasm towards participation and involvement on the day.

The club has put a lot of work in to develop a COVID-safe Plan, meeting best practice recommendations for the return to sport.

This was well supported by members and visiting shooters.

The grounds were in excellent condition due to the upgrade of the layouts which was partly funded by the Narrabri Shire Local Sporting Grants.

Some of the other new updates include EFTPOS, live access to My Club My Scores, an extra two clay throwing traps and new signage.
